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.

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.

I am trying to run the self cleaning oven and keep getting a toubleshooting code of e1 f5. Not sure what this means or how to fix it/


Hello- The code you describe- E1 F5 - indicates a problem with the door switch. This little switch tends to fail during or after the 'self-clean' function is used. The switches are difficult to get to on some of these units so plan on just replacing it with a new one. This part is available locally at an appliance parts store with a complete model # from range tag. When power is re-connected, door motor should cycle back to correct position. Remember- techs call it 'self-destruct', so avoid 'self-clean'. The tried and true cleaning methods are a lot less destructive on the circuits and electronics. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed. Thanks- Ed.

The door latch assembly has gone bad. You will need to replace this assembly to fix problem. No way of safely bypassing. Sorry hope this helps.

During selfceaning cycle F5 and beeping occured, removed power and powered back on and it seems to be ok, however I haven't tryed the self cleaning yet.


possibly a door latch issue depending on your brand , this is common during self clean dont self clean unless u have to those ovens get close to 1000F so melting of some parts is inevatible.. did it flash f5 and then an error code like e1 or e2 that would direct us to possible more solutions, or it might blown a thermostat more likely on a wall oven and not a range.

On your model it should mean a defective door latch switch.
