What does the code F5E1 on a Whirlpool model RF368LXPS range mean?

When I turn it on it will work for a minute and then it will show F5E1 and I would like to know what this means.

The error F5E1 indicates the over door latch is not operating.

I recommend you program a clean cycle and start it and observe if the door will latch. If the door latches and the code displays then it is most likely the control but if it does not latch at all then the latch mechanism is most likely bad.

This problem can be a bad door lock switch, motor or control and I recommend a technician check and repair this problem.
