Re: Whirlpool self cleaning oven, Super capacity 465,...
I had the same FSE error which the whirpool web site advises that you will need to schedule a service appt to fix. Instead I leaded against the door while initiating the cleaning cycle and the door locks and oven cleans fine.

Hi! The F2 code means Oven Temperature Too High. When this code is present do the following: 1. Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC). 2. For SELF CLEAN models: check door lock operation. 3. Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.
Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature.

Hello. It is possible that the oven accidentally got turned to the self-clean function. Check to see. If it is set to self-clean, the door lock activated. In order to unlock the oven has to be taken off of self-clean and then it has to cool down to room temperature before it will unlock. Joe
Usually the oven has to be locked closed with a handle on on the front door. This will activate a safety mechanism that will allow the cleaning cycle to start. If the safety switch is malfunctioning or the door is not closed properly, the cleaning cycle won't start.
facing the front of the oven (while off) put your hand along the back of the oven toward the top left side. there should be a techinical spec sheet with a list of what the codes mean and possable solutions.
