    dishwasher vent actuator

    Model Number: KUDS30IVBL2
    Brand: KitchenAid
    Age: More than 10 years

    Should the Whirlpool vent assembly WPW10164259 have continuity between the two pins when the assembly is removed from the dishwasher? Want to ensure mine is bad before ordering a new one.

    Hi Don,

    The wax motor on the vent assembly should measure 600-1800 ohms. That value is too high to register on a continuity test, you will need to have your multimeter set to measure ohms to test it.
