Customer Question

I have a Whirlpool double oven, model rbd305pds14, s/n xr4600263, approx 10 years old. It started showing an F5E1 error code. I have replaced the control board, side board, panel, and door latch. I've replaced everything I can think of. The oven still works, but the error code still shows up and beeps. Any ideas?

when the code comes up is the door closed or open ?

If it is closed is it locked?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Door closed. When I plug power back in, the door latch goes through it's sequence, locks door briefly, unlocks, the error code F5E1 comes up 20 seconds later

and can you open the door then ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes. the latch retracts.
