Whirlpool Self Cleaning Electric Range Model RF386PXGW0:
Used Self cleaning feature and when done got error code E1-F5 and door won't unlock. I just want to get the door open, don't necessarily need self cleaning feature or door latch to work ever again, as long as oven does.
How do I get the door open??
1. Verify error code by pressing and holding CANCEL/OFF key for 5 seconds.
Momentarily (less than 5 sec.) press CANCEL key again to remove error code
2. Press and hold any key for 1 minute until F2 E0 code is displayed.
3. Cancel F2 E0 error code.
4. Program and start the clean mode. Observe to see if door locks. If it does not,
inspect the locking mechanism from the solenoid to the latch pawl and door to
find the cause of the problem. If the door is not locking, then 1 minute from the
start of clean, the F5 E1 code will again be displayed. Steps 1 through 3 will
have to be repeated before another clean can be started.
5. Once any mechanical problems with the latch mechanism have been corrected,
program and start a clean cycle (after, if necessary, clearing F5 E1 error code)
to ensure proper operation of the door lock. Immediately cancel the clean mode to observe proper operation of door unlock

Sounds like your door latch switch is defective and may need to be replaced.

I tried the solution above. The switch must be bad because
the F5E1 error reappeared.
To stop the BEEPING, I lifted up the stovetop to expose the
burners. I could see the oven door latch. It was still locked.
I moved the latch to the left with my finger. It slowly released itself.
The red LOCK light went out and the beeping stopped.
This probably means that the latch did not release fully after the oven self cleaning cycle was finished.
Hope that helps get rid of the beeping for you too.
