I have an older whirlpool oven, model wpg83800. I initiated the self-clean feature last night and the door automatically locks. After leaving it cool over-night the oven door is still locked, how do I get it to unlock?

ok this is though, you need to get a coat hanger and make a hook to slide into and catch the hook latch and pull it over enough to get the door open , your model # XXXXX't comming up but you will need to replace the door latch assembly on this, you may need to remove it and take it to an appliance parts store and have them get you one, it is the electronic lock , hope this helps, thanks Bryan
