Question about Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges
The error code E9-6 is for "latch both lower", which, when translated to English, means "both lower latches".

Actually, this excerpt from epinions.com explains your situation:
Still delighted with the Gemini, but I experienced my first error code this week. Sunday night, the range started beeping like crazy. Across the clock display a message scrolled saying that the oven had an F9-3 error. None of the booklets that came with the range explained the error codes, so I searched on the internet and found the F9-3 code had something to do with a lower latch (which I assumed meant the latch on the oven). I did not phone the telephone number scrolling across the display. Instead I phoned my reliable appliance store, where I have purchased all my major appliances for years.
I spoke with the repair person on Monday. He verified that the F9-3 code did mean the latch on the oven. He came out the same day and reviewed the situation. A latch assembly needed to be ordered. He said I could still use the oven but that if the latch locked, it might not open again until after the repair. I didn't like the idea of food being trapped in the oven ... so instead I used my trusty T-Fal Avante Elite Toaster Oven.
On Wednesday, the repair person came to the house with the part and fixed the oven. It took less than a half hour for the repair. The part list price is $80.00, and my kind repair person sold it to me for $59.95. The same day, I baked rolls in the top voen, and I baked a chicken pot pie (made from scratch!) in the lower oven, and the ovens work great.
UPDATE - December 12, 2008
I thought you would like to know that this oven is still working great! We are incredibly pleased with it. Other than what I have already mentioned, there have been no issues with this appliance.
Obviously, she got the F9-3 and F9-6 codes mixed up, but that looks like what you need.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.
