How can I check the function of the air vent? Is ther any way to test it or the controller? I used to see steam come from the vent during drying but not in a long time. Thanks!

Tom for Model Number KUDS02SRSS0

ANSWER Hi Tom. Check in behind the lower kick plate or inside the inner door panel to find the tech. diagnostic sheet. It allows you to put the unit in a diagnostic mode which brings up fault codes and tells you which circuit needs assistance. Use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. On P10-1 connector pin 5 brown wire is the 120 vac from the K2 relay on the control board paart # W10084141. On the p10-3 pin 1 brown is the neutral for that circuit. If between these points you do not get the 120 vac then possibly the board is bad. There is a noin replaceable fuse (f-9) on the board which may be open. First make sure the control board has the voltager input at P4-2 black wire on the board. It gets its power through a closed non resettable thermal fuse part # W10258275. These live checks are done with the door latch switches tripped closed. All this is on the wiring diagram/tech sheet. The wax motor is ohmed out to 600-1800 ohms cold. The piuns will be different when your model has turbozone cycle selected. Thank You.
