Was there a YaST online update since it worked and now when it
does no longer work?

Did you do a "stupid-but-often-helpful" reboot?

It seems both the print dialog in the application and the YaST
printer config hang up because of the same reason.

YaST writes its debug- and log-messages to
files (/var/log/YaST2/y2log is the cuttent one).

If you can reproduce it (even after a reboot):
Remove /var/log/YaST2/y2log and then start YaST again until it hangs
then copy the current /var/log/YaST2/y2log or kill YaST to avoid that
YaST writes tons of same messages which fill up /var/log/YaST2/y2log
without providing any new information.

As I am no YaST expert, I can probably not help even if I see
/var/log/YaST2/y2log but without it, it is totally impossible
to guess what goes on.
