Question about Whirlpool Ovens
I live in apartment with a Whirlpool dishwasher and oven. Today was my first day to do automatic clean. After two minutes the "F5SEI" would pop up, then the door would unlock. I repeated this a couple of times. My mind wondered about a water source; perhaps the dishwater. Fortunately, I had a load of dishes ready to go. So I started the dishwasher, then the automatic clean on the oven. Behold! They work together like homies :)

HI. This will indicate that the door lock mechanism is damaged. follow the procedure below to address further.
If the door is latched:
A. Disconnect power from unit.
B. Check wires and connectors from control to door switch, then from door switch to control. If there is no damage to the wires and all connectors are okay, proceed to step C.
C. Replace door switch.
D. Re-apply power.
E. Press and hold any key down for 1 minute to clear F5 failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
NOTE_ This will, normally, lead to the replacement of the door latch assembly.

Make sure that the door latch is completly locked and then try again. If it is locked and you are getting this code the door latch assembly is bad. The oven sensor would be fine since you get no codes during normal baking. Problem is in door lock system

SOURCE: my oven code is F5E1
F5E1 is door latch assembly. One way that may work to unlock is to turn circuit breaker to stove off for few seconds then turn back on and door lock should activate and unlock. If not you are going to have to replace the door lock assembly.

The F5E1 error codes means that the door light switch OR a switch on the self clean latch has failed. If the oven light comes on and goes off when the door is opened and closed it most likely going to be a switch on the latch thats the problem.
The part numbers are;
DOOR LATCH W10107830
LIGHT SWITCH 3195993
