What happens when you start to start the self clean cycle exactly?

The 3:30 appears but the door no longer locks, it eventually beeps and flashes a code until I hit cancel

F5 E1 I suspect which is what I thought your error would be. This error means that your door latch has failed and is no longer moving so that is why the unit won't self clean. Try to open the door and wiggle the door latch in case it's just jammed. If you try again and it still won't clean and you get the same error, the door latch assembly would need to be replaced.
