Question about Dryers

Open Question

Malber TD 700 dryer. Motor runs, but struggles to turn the drum. Even with just a minor amount of clothes in the dryer it struggles to turn. The majority of the time, it is struggling to turn clockwise. I can re adjusted clothes to the right side of the dryer during its cycle that is turning clockwise and it will continue to run. But when the cycle gets back to clockwise...it stalls,while the motor struggles,and the Heater is glowing red. Also, when the timer reaches zero,...the light (yellow on right) stays on unless you depress one or both of the function buttons.

SOURCE: I have a 5 year old Whirlpool Electric Dryer, Model #LER7648KT2. The Dryer won't start. I have checked the door switch, start button switch and visible thermo switches or thermostats with an ohm met

There are usually 2 thermal fuses in dryer circuits. One is on the heater housing and will blow in an overtemp condition around 310-350F.
The other is on the blower or exhaust housing and will blow around 200F
Make absolutely sure the 2nd one is continuous and not intermittently functional. This will definitely stop the motor from functioning

Below is a diagram for an older model (LER4634). Your dryer has some additional terminals probably because it has additional drying cycle options.

The diagram may be more readable when copied and pasted into a plain text editor such as Notepad or another editor with non-proportional fonts

Switch Terminals
|TM |TM |BK |BK |BK |
|WB |OR |BU |BU |R |
|-- |-- |V |-- |-- |
|---|---|---|---|---|
|O |X |O |X |X |Auto - High Heat
|O |X |X |X |X |Auto - Low Heat
|---|---|---|---|---|
|<> |<> |~ |X |O |Cool Down / Fluff
|O |X |O |O |O |End of Cycle
|---|---|---|---|---|
|X |O |O |X |X |Timed - High Heat
|X |O |X |X |X |Timed - Low Heat
|---|---|---|---|---|

Legend:
O = Open (Infinite Resistance)
X = Closed (Continuous)
<> = Either (But not Both)
~ = Doesn't Matter
NA = Not Applicable

Switch Terminals:

TM - Timer Motor (Different Models may use different colors)
WB - Black/White
OR - Orange
BK - Black
BU - Blue
V - Violet/Purple
R - Red

Example: For the Auto - High Heat Dry cycle, the following terminals are continuous:
Terminals
<TM - OR>
<BK - BU>
<BK - R>
(of course since BK-BU is continuous and BK-R is continuous, then BU-R is also continuous.

This should allow you to test at least some of the cycles your timer switch has

I have a general schematic in PDF for whirlpool for gas and electric, but did not see an option to add an attachment to this message.

Hope this helps or point you in the right direction.

Possible blower fan failure, Or Blower fan blades are choked with lint, so no blow.
Your gonna need to open it up. If fan blades are choked, simply clean and vacuum them. Reassemble and test run.

If fan blades are clear, (minor lint-ing will not stop it working) then it indicates fan motor is bad.
Possibly a capacitor (motor starter) rather than motor. Usually a small cylindrical object with wires attached, located in close proximity with related motor. Check for swelling, leaking. if looks OK it's likely fine.

Capacitor is cheap to replace first. Must use SAME VALUES as original.

I just got a malber 1000 washer/dryer. Can it be used as a dryer only?


NO THIS UNIT USES CONDENSED DRYING AND WILL WET THE CLOTHES BEFORE IT EVEN TURNS ON THE HEATER. BASICALLY YOUR COMBO USES STEAM CIRCULATION THRU YOUR CLOTHES. AS THE SMALL WATER PARTICLES IN THE STEAM MOVE THRU YOUR CLOTHES IT COMBINES WITH SMALL WATER PARTICALS IN THE CLOTHES(THINK OF 2 WATER DROPS COMBINING ON YOUR WINDSHEILD AND HOW THEY ABSORB TOGETHER) WHICH RISE TO THE TOP OF THE TUB AND COLLECT INTO WATER AGAIN. THEY THEN ROLL DOWN THE SIDES OF THE TUB AND COLLECT AGAIN AT THE BOTTOM TO BE PUMPED OUT. BEFORE THIS PROCESS EVEN STARTS THE UNIT WILL ACTUALLY ADD WATER TO GENERATE THE STEAM. MOST PEOPLE FIND THAT IF THEY WANT TO JUST FRESHEN UP SOMETHING, IT WILL END UP DRENCHING WET IN THE FIRST FEW MINUTES.

Our Maytag gas dryer drum doesn't turn. Replaced belt. Heats up but drum isn't turning


There are three possible reasons why the drum doesn't turn.
  1. Broken belt. You replaced the so in this case it's not.
  2. Door switch. The dryer will not operate if teh door switch is defective. It is inside the drier main housing near the door frame. You need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Replace if defective.
  3. Motor. If the motor hums when the start button is pressed, the motor maybe burned-out. Check the dryer motor:
  • Check the blower fan housing for obstruction and manually turn the motor shaft.
  • If the motor is very stiff or cannot be turned manually, you need to replace the motor.
  • If the motor rotate freely, run the motor without the belt. If it runs fine, there maybe problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum.
  • Rotate the drum by hand. If it is difficult to rotate it, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley. Reassemble the dryer and try it again.
  • If the motor hums but does not run on it's own even without the belt,but can be turned freely by hand, you need to replace the motor start capacitor or the motor itself.

Drum does not spin


I had similar problem recently. It turned out the main controller right above the drain hose exit on the back was the problem. I got a new board from MALBER and replaced it myself. It is working now.

Machine runs, but clothing won't dry


It sounds like your heating element is shot. The elements on this machine are very sensitive and if you use too much cleaning fluid the part will wear down after a while. You will need to get the part replaced (yuck) and start to use a little less washer fluid. Please let me know about your experience with the company (danfrogel@yahoo.com)

Condenser Dryer turns but no heat


Check with multi-meter for power on the heating element's tags (115/220V). If it does get power,you should replace the heating element. In case of no power- you should replace the thermostat. Good luck!
