I have installed a Malber WD1000 in my tennants apt. I bought it used on Craig's list. It seems to be working fine, moving through the cycles and draining after each one. The tenant says, however, that when they turn it off, it fill half way with water.
Is this normal? Do I need to have the hose do something to keep drain water from easing its way back into the machine?
She also said that it is not drying well, but I think that is more about her learning to using the dryer part better.

Hi. I''m assuming you are referring to a WD1000.
To initiate the drain cycle: Rotate far right knob CLOCKWISE to Position 4. It may take 30-45 seconds to recognize the knob's new position, but then it will begin an 11 minute Slow Tumble/Pump Out cycle. During this cycle you'll see the internal drum slowly rotate CW for 60 seconds, pause, then rotate CCW for 5 secs - then repeat. All this time the pump will run and you'll hear water running down the drain. When you hear no more water you can rotate same knob to "straight up", and stop the machine. To turn power off, press the rightmost button.
No water fill
1.water valves closed----turn on valves
2. Hoses kinked---unkink hoses
3. Screen in fill hose clogged----clean out screen
4. No power to fill solenoid---replace solenoid
5. Faulty water level control---replace control
6. Machine did not turn on----check control & power outlet
Water will not drain from machine
1.kinked or clogged hose----clean drain hose
2.pump does not run----readjust & tighten pump-drive mechanism
3.suds lock----remove suds,, add cold water
4.faulty transfer valve---replace
6.loose belt---adjust belt
There is a wire which connects to a connection towards the front of the drum itself on the right side which when the drum wobbles, comes off. When it gets loose, it may start to arc so that the spade connector needs replacing. In extremis the whole unit may need replacing. This seems to govern whether the heater elements turn on or not. If you put the connector back on, I'll bet the heater starts to work again
Hello. Just turn off the water and then remove the fill hose which goes from the water faucet into the back of the machine. Examine the entire hose and pay closest attention to the filter located at the end of the hose nearest the faucet. regards, Joe

TURN THE MACHINE OFF NOW.
If the machine still has the transit brackets fitted (which is what I think your post implies), operating it in a wash cycle is likely to lead to severe damage to the machine and could be quite dangerous too.
You can find a copy of the manual here:
Before you use the machine again, suggest you look at page 2, and check that everything that should have been removed actually has been.
Turning to the question you actually asked, failure to go into a tumble cycle isn't really the sort of thing that would normally associate with packaging having been left in place. Skimming through the manual, there are hints (see page 14) that you're meant to do some counterintuitive things to make the dryer work on this model - like keeping the "half load" button pressed in. Making sure "Spin Cancel" is out is a bit more obvious, but just as important.
