How to test the kneader without ingredients

Hi all,

Kenwood BM450

Just have the above breadmaker, brand new, delivered.  After reading the manual I can't find the steps testing the kneader.  I expect to make sure the kneader can work without problem first before putting the ingredients testing baking.  Please help.  TIA

B.R.

Combining a bit of flour/yeast/salt/water to test the machine isn't a huge investment.  Give it a try .....
