How do I remove the vent from the door panel? Do the wires need to be cut? Does the kit offered include wiring for installation?
Answer Hello Joe,
The wires will unplug. If the wires need to be cut it will be covered in the instruction sheet to this kit. To remove the vent you will need to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to rotate the vent cover on the door liner about 1/4 turn. All parts needed for the installation of this kit are included.
The vent switch fell apart. Will that prevent starting?
Answer Hello Alban,
If the model number is KUDI01FLBL2, the unit will most likely sense the problem if it is electrical and give a fault code which will prevent the unit from starting. You should pull the tech sheet and run the diagnostic cycle to pull any fault codes. The tech sheet also has a troubleshooting guide with instructions on what to check for each problem description. It should be located behind the kickpanel of the unit.
How do you test this? I think mine is not working because the dishwasher runs fine until steam starts coming out of the vent then without draining the dw stops with flashing normal led. If I open the door cut power at breaker and wait an hour it is fi e and I can hit cancel to drain it and reuse but with the same problem
Steam and condensation is on the top vent and I think steam may be getting to the control board and touchpad panel and shorting something out Then when it dries it is ok. Sound reasonable?
Answer Sedan, Yes, Your idea sounds reasonable. You're probably going to want to separate the inner door liner from the door frame and hinges(after you remove power to the dishwasher, and check the vent and vent seal W10328540 1. Remove the six (6) screws securing the
control panel to the door frame. 2. Disconnect the wiring harness connectors from the wax motor terminals on the active vent assembly.
3. Loosen, but do not remove the four T-15 Torx screws securing the left side of the outer door panel to the door frame. This will provide addition room to easily remove the active vent assembly. 4. Using a flat bladed screwdriver in the slot provided at the bottom of the interior vent grille, turn the vent grille counterclockwise ¼ turn and remove the grille. 5. The active vent assembly will drop free of
the dishwasher door. You will also want to check the door liner, control panel and control board for water marks and condensation. You should be able to find the tech data sheet attached to the back of the lower access panel or the frame, You'll want to conduct the diagnostic and test mode to verify component operation, and reset the control program.
