SOURCE: oven door does not close

I had the same problem. The first time the Tech. came out, put a new hinge in and it held until Nov. 07. ( 8 months ). Then the left hinge brakes when I opend the door and it crashes to the floor. Bending the right hinge and the metal doorliner. Jan.7,08 everything was fixed. On 1/11 after no more then 10 openings & closings the hinge broke again. This time I heard the crack of the braking metal after opening the door 2 inches. It now sits in my kitchen propped-up with a stick, waiting for the repairman. I am sorry I have no solution , but there must be a problem with the hinges. I forgot to tell you that it started with a door that did not close, like yours.

F5 is a common door latch failure or adjustment code. You may have simply bumped or repositioned something concerning the door latch assy. maybe during a routine wipedown? You can investigate this via your instruction manual.

Post me back if I may be of further assistance.

SOURCE: Oven door stuck

To open the door, raise the oven top and use a a flat head screwdriver to open the lock manually.
The door will still lock itself when you close it, so this is only usefull to get your food out.

E1 F5Error on Whirlpool wall oven.


The main control and door latch are not talking to each other without testing impossible to say which one on the latch assembly there are micro switches which have contacts that are open or closed depending on latch position this tells the control the position when you power up the door locks the unlocks try a latch assembly first

Whirlpool range RDE 6100N2


Instead of trying to place the bracket to the door from a lowered position at floor level, I positioned the brackets and from a standing position, placed the bracket into the slot, pushed in a downward position and the door went into place.

Door


The latch assembly should have a switch on it to indicate whether or not the door is open. Press in or sideways on the latch arm to simulate a door closed condition.
