** The door lock unlocked just fine after cleaning.tried using oven and all it says on screen is door. **

It sounds like the control 'thinks' the door is still locked. If the door isn't locked than there could be a problem with one of the switches on the door latching mechanism (see the following link) or the wiring doing to that switch so the control can't determine the correct latch position.

Actual investigation will likely be needed to determine if either is the cause in your case.

Lift the top of the stove off by "popping" it free with a screw driver on both sides. Remove about a 6" x 8" panel that will expose the door switch. It may be sticking in a position that it prompts the door message. Nudge the metal tab on the door switch back into position, if it isn't returning back and forth, replace it or don't use the cleaning lever again.

Same problem was solved on my range. I did a reset by un plugging for 1/2 hour. Then plugged it in again. After about 5 minutes the display looked OK. I tested BAKE and the oven heated up and held the temperature normally. Next I checked BROIL and that worked too. Wow---I can't find the web page where I read about it or I would post,
