Question about Malber WD1000 Front Load Washer/Dryer
My Malber WD800 doesn't heat up during dry cycle... I know it's probably the heating elements, and as an engineer and avid DIYer I'm prepared to replace them myself, I'm looking for help in locating a service manual to show me where they're located, and therefore the recommended way to disassemble the unit etc...
I can't seem to find this manual online anywhere...
thanks in advance for the help!

The thing making noise is probably the inlet valve, not the pump. The pump pumps the used water out the drain hose. Anyway, if the noise happens when water is trying to come in, the inlet valve is probably faulty. Onw way to get around this without repair is this: If you are hooking up to the sink, that means you are using only one hose to the machine. The other inlet to machine is probably capped off. Remove the cap, and the hose to the respective inlets, and reverse. You will probably have to change your water temp selectors on the front of the machine. If this makes it run OK, then you can later buy an inlet valve and replace at your leisure. For parts call 718-767-7396 in NY. I hope they will ship to where you are. Good luck and let me know what happens.

Hi. Mike here. I repair Malbers in the Washington D.C. area. The most likely problem is not the heating element, but the hi-temp (or "brown") thermostat. They cost about $25 and are very simple to install. A "Torx 1.5" screwdriver (asterisk tip) removes two screws, in back, holding top on. Lift off top, and (from the front) see silver-foil-wrapped heating assy. At lower right will be a small philips screw holding a thin wire "hasp" which holds the thermostat in place. Remove screw and hasp (without dropping in machine!), unplug two "quiik-connect" lugs (orange & red wires) and pull out thermostat to the right. New one slips right back in. Replace wires, hasp, phillips screw and top -and you're done! This is 90% sure to fix. The heating element is only about 5% likely.
One last thing ... when re-inserting new thermostat, you'll have to "wrestle" with it a bit, as the tip needs to slip into a tiny (hard to "find") hole. Keep trying, and eventually it'll fit ALL the way in, so the hasp can hold it. To purchase part, call Joel (at Malber): 800-600-8913
Oh yeah, one MORE last thing... That red wire may be burnt a little, or completely burnt in two. Radio Shack and Home Depot sell "crimp-on" lugs (1/4") like these (female). Trim back the wire, crimp a new lug on the end, and push it back onto lower terminal on thermostat. If wire is too short, of course, add a few inches of 16 guage "stranded" (lamp cord). The same stores also sell tubular "crimp-on" wire-connectors (little blue tubes) to join the old and new wires. May God bless.
