You should test your newly-installed bidet seat, as well as any other features. It may come as a surprise, but… you’ll need to sit on the bidet seat for it to work! Your seat has a sensor that is triggered by skin contact. This safety feature stops the bidet from spraying your bathroom and making a mess. (To disable the seat sensor, see your owner’s manual.)

To test the bidet toilet seat without sitting on it, place your hand on the bottom right corner of the seat, at about 4:00 on a clock face. Next, press the button for the dryer (if available) or nozzle cleaning. You can also press the wash button, but make sure you hold your hand over the nozzle as it sprays.
