    Tried all the suggestions except removing the range top. I still get the error E1 F5. message. I can't remove the top because I am 69 years old,no strength. There so no visible obstruction and latch does work if I work it manually. Is there no other solutions I can try?

    So I guess 2011 is going to be a trying year. Have too wait for service centers to open on Monday. Thanks for the help anyway.

Hi, the E1-F5 error code is a door lock error. It means that the oven is sensing that the door is not securely closed. Could be a bent latch or some other trouble. Unplug the range for 15 seconds and see if that clears the code. If it does not clear the code, then the Latch to the door, or switch is failing causing the error door message.

Troubleshooting the Oven...

  • 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.
  • Locate the door stop clip, a small piece of protruding metal immediately above the left door hinge. Inspect the clip for any twisting or foreign objects. Straighten a twisted clip with needle-nose pliers, remove foreign objects, and wipe the clip and both hinges clean with a damp cloth. If either door hinge is bent, replace both.
  • 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. If it works, you've fixed the problem. If the code reappears, the door latch assembly must be replaced. If your warranty is still valid, do not attempt any further repairs - contact a service center.
  • 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. These are located inside the upper rim of the door stop. Remove these screws and lift the cooktop.
  • Look at the inside front rim of the cavity. If you see a lock mechanism with no wires, you can replace it yourself. If you do not see a recognizable lever assembly, or if the assembly includes a small black box with wiring, your oven has a special type of lock that requires certain equipment and training to service. Contact a repair center.
  • Remove the entire cooktop. On some models, it slides directly toward the front and lifts out, on other models, it tilts up and lifts out. Set it aside. Remove the screws holding the latch assembly in place, lift the assembly out and discard. Replace with a heat sensitive latch assembly for your model. 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. If it does not work, or if the error code returns, contact a service center.

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:

Self cleaning feature


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.

When I try to start the self-cleaning oven, ''door'' appears in the display, and then the display goes to F5 E1. The door doesn't even try to lock. I have a Whirlpool Self-cleaning electric range Model #...


there are switches under the cooktop that go bad frequently. i do not recommend ever using the self clean mode in an oven. the oven gets so hot that things have a tendency to melt because they dont build stuff like they used to. there is inadequate insulation in modern ovens. use easy off and follow the label directions. it'll be cheaper in the long run, trust me.

E1 F5 Error on Whirlpool Accubake Oven


The lock latch is located directly in the center upper portion of the door. It is a hook shaped latch that lock by turning downward. This lock gets stuck in this position which causes the e1 f5 error code. Locate the latch through the vent holes in the upper front of the oven door. Insert flat headed srew driver into vent hole and gently push latch up to a horizontal position & simply open door. Once unlocked, push cancel on the control panel.This will clear the error code and resolve the issue.
