I unplugged the range from the wall and using my meter, did a continuity check of the latch position switch (the one on the right). The switch was reading as an open circuit in standby and when I actuated the switch which tells me the switch has failed. The second switch on the latch assembly, by the way, is to turn the oven light off during the self cleaning cycle to protect the bulb. That way, if you leave the light switch on the control panel turned to the on position, that second switch will turn it back off. Good to know if you can't figure out why the oven light won't turn on.

After self cleaning today, the oven will not unlock and shows E1 F5 on the display. What do we do to unlock?


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.

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.
