Hi


Error F5 E1 means that the oven is sensing that the door is not securely closed. This issue may occur during or after self clean cycle. During the typical self cleaning cycle of an oven, the interior temperature can reach well above 700 degrees, all self clean ovens are equipped with a locking mechanism that will remain locked until the oven has returned to a low enough temperature for the door to be safely opened. Press "Off/Cancel" to clear the display, engage the door latch and try to turn on the self-clean cycle. If it works, it was just a momentary short. If the error code reappears, the problem could be either the door hinge assembly or the door latch. Open the oven door as far as it will go, and close it slowly and smoothly. Try to wiggle the door side to side by tugging on the handle. If it does not move, the latch is the problem. If it does move, tighten the screws on the hinges located at the bottom of the door until they are secure.
Close the oven door and engage the door latch. Press "Off/Cancel" to clear the error code, then try to start the self-clean cycle. Restart the range and try again. If the code reappears, the door latch assembly must be replaced.
You can check the door assembly yourself, Unplug the oven and turn off the gas valve. Open the oven door and locate the screws that hold the control panel and cooktop in place. Remove these screws and lift the cooktop. Check the lock mechanism for wiring connecions. Try and remove the entire cooktop, it slides directly toward the front and lifts out or it tilts up and lifts out. Set it aside. Replace the latch assembly. Tighten screws securely, and test the latch before you replace the cooktop.
Place the cooktop back into position. Make sure the back portion is secure. Replace the front screws. Plug the oven back in, turn on the gas, engage the new latch, and try to run a self-clean cycle.
Your Whirlpool gas range comes with a one-year full warranty, so if your range is relatively new, contact a service center to avoid accidentally voiding your warranty. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Whirlpool Oven Common Problems and Causes

1 Answer

Cannot find my manual and would like to know how to use the self-cleaning part. I held the button down for "lock", but the door did not lock, and where do I go from there?


Give this a try:
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 display. 2. 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 the Clean, the F5 E1 code will again be displayed. Press CANCEL key to remove error code display. 3. 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.

If this doesn't help try this link to locate the right model:

Whirlpool Gold Self-Cleaning Oven Error Message: E1 F5. What does it mean and can I fix it?


E1-F5 means the self clean latch will not lock.

Try pressing down any key and hold for 1 minute, see if this clears it. If not you will most likely need the latch switch replacing.

1.
If door latched:


  1. Disconnect power from unit.
  2. Check wires and connectors from control to door switch, then from door

    step C.
  3. Replace door switch.
  4. Re-apply power.
  5. 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.

2. If door not latched:


  1. Disconnect power from unit.
  2. Check wires and connectors from control to latch switch, then from latch
    switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to
    step C.
  3. Repeat steps A and B for door switch.

3. Measure door switch (door open = switch open small low voltage terminals).
Replace switch if defective.
4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open,
CAUTION - oven light contacts are closed). Replace switch if defective.
5. If
corrections are made in any step, reconnect power to control. Press and hold any
key for 1 minute to clear R failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press
CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
6. If failure
remains, disconnect power and replace control.

Error code


The E1- F5 error is a door lock error.

The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...

Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused.
You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.

If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display.
This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.

Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.
