Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

So to start let me explain your error code. F5E1 means that your door latch isn't rotating properly. Hopefully the door isn't currently locked or that will make repairs a bit more difficult. If the door still opens, wiggle the door latch hook in case it's stuck then try to set self clean again. If it still won't lock and you still get the same error, you need to replace the door latch if you want to use self clean again.
