How do you know if the vent house assembly is bad? My dishwasher is blowing steam past the door seal. It doesn't appear the vent is exhausting any steam. Can the switch be tested?
ANSWER Hello Brian. Press heated dry 5 times, then press the start key within 8 seconds. The normal light will flash 3 times. If you press cycles select/normal one time the heavy wash light will come on, and the vent should open. If it does not open, then the switch is bad. It takes this a little time to open, about 30 seconds it should be moving. Hope this helps.
