This may be a dumb question, but how does this vent work and what is the function of the sensor or whatever it is connected to the control panel? Is it purely mechanical from internal pressure? Ours never seems to vent well and I have noticed what looks like blow-by around the door seal. Thanks, Karl

Air Vent Assembly AP3182698 for Kenmore part # 8545533. Is this the "Wax motor" described on page 16, behind Fig 3-6 of the Whirlpool KD-12 manual? Is there a motor & fan inside this assembly to aid venting? We have the Kenmore Elite Type 577-O version of the Whirlpool GU1200XT / GU1500XT. Our problem is the top rack is not drying completely. The heating element seems to be working. Unit is 5 years old. Thank You for your help!

No there are no lights flashing. The different wash cycle lights will sometimes come on when pressed other times they will not. The start light does not come on when pressed resulting in failure to start. I was able to get the machine to start on two separate occasions but since has reverted to what is explained above.

There appears to be some sort of thermostat attached to vent assembly. How does this affect function of control panel? I have power to control panel, hi limit is good, door switch is good and have replaced control board. lights will come on intermitantly but will not start when "start" is selected. Also cancel and drain work and machine will cycle through drain. I suspect the ribbon strip or contacts on the control assembly but want to rule out anything else prior to replacement as this is an expensive part. Thank you
