Hi, if your display screen is showing an F5-E1 error code, it means that the oven is sensing that the door is not securely closed

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.

The f5 code has locked the oven door on a whirlpool range # RF386PXGN


According to the manual any F codes need to be verified by a technician. It's most likely an electronic problem. http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%208053401.pdf ( page 37 )

Why won't the oven door lock to start the self cleaning? The door appears to be shut all the way. After hit start, this code appears E1 F5


According to the Whirlpool website, the self-cleaning latch may be interfering with the door, though this would be indicated by an "E0 F5" error code. If that's the case, Whirlpool recommends the following:
1) Press "Stop/Clear" to clear your display.
2) According to Whirlpool, there should be a door switch plunger in the upper right corner of the oven front. Press and hold this so that the door latch will unlock.
However, if it is indeed "E1 F5" (or any other number with those letters in the code), Whirlpool recommends calling an appliance technician.

E1 F5 Error Code RPD-305-PDS14 Whirlpool Double Oven. Woke up to code. Turn Off/On/Breaker and Appears to re-boot, until you turn the oven on, then 30 seconds later back to E1 F5. I replaced the whole...


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.

For some reason I get the same error code every time we have a power outage. If you push and hold the "lower off" button for about ten or 15 seconds it will unlock and reset. Hope this helps.
