Dryer doesn't dry clothes, doesn't start right after Wash

Hi, I just moved into an apartment with a brand new Malber WD 1000. I was able to get the Wash cycle to work, but was stuck on how to get the dryer to work. Finally, I was able to figure it out, but the clothes aren't coming out dry. I put a very small load in, dried it several times, and the clothes are still wet!!! I looked at the other posts for advice, but seeing as this is a brand new machine, I don't understand what's going on. Any advice would be wonderful, because every time I call "Malber Service and Repair Company," the line is busy!

Re: Dryer doesn't dry clothes, doesn't start right after...

Can anyone provide further information about "Condense the moisture out of the circulating air." I think this is the problem I am having drying my clothes too, but I do not see how to fix it. I have a new Malber WD 1000 also.

Re: Dryer doesn't dry clothes, doesn't start right after...

If the machine is brand new, I imagine all you want to do is check you're using the machine correctly before you claim on the warranty. Trouble is, the design of this machine is so weird, and the instructions so poor that it's easy to get it wrong. So far as I can make out from this distance, you need to have all of: Spin Cancel: Out Half Load: In Cold/Cold: In Hot/Cold: Out Cold water supply: Available Drain Hose: Connected .... and as with most condensing dryers, you need to let it run to the end of its cycle - if you take stuff out without running the final 12 minute cooldown period, everything will come out feeling a bit clammy. If those control settings don't help, try a functional faultfinding approach. To dry properly, the machine needs to do four things at once: 1. Tumble the clothes: You can see whether this is happening or not. From your description, it sounds like this is working. If this isn't right, see if changing control settings works, but then for a new machine make a warranty call. 2. Blow hot air over the clothes: You should be able to hear the fan running, and if you open the door, the air which comes out should be quite warm. If this isn't right, see if changing control settings works, but then for a new machine make a warranty call. 3. Condense the moisture out of the circulating air: If this isn't happening, the clothes don't get any dryer - they just get increasingly hot. Before making a warranty claim, all you need to do with this problem is ensure that the supplies and settings are such that cold water (and only cold water) is getting to the condenser. 4. Pump out the condensate: If you've just washed successfully, this is probably going to be working fine. If not, then you'll start to see the drum slowly filling with water. If this happens, check the filter (p12 of the manual), then get the warranty claim going. Welcome follow-on questions or news on how you get on posted as a comment to this query. A.

Dryer will not Dry!

A conventional dryer uses 240 volts to heat air, which passes through the tumbling laundry, picking up moisture, which is then vented to the building's exterior.
Your dryer uses 120 volts to warm air, which picks up moisture from the tumbling clothes, which then passes through a vent pipe in the back right corner of the dryer where a cold water spray causes the moisture to condense, run to the drain, and then is pumped out of the washer/dryer combo. There is no exterior vent to the outside of the building. Drying with your dryer will take at least twice as long as with a standard dryer. You can wash large loads, but can only dry small loads, and the clothes will not be as dry when dryer is finished as they will be with a standard dryer.
All that said, to make sure your dryer is performing as well as it can, you might like to take the back cover off and check the elbow at the very left bottom corner (when viewed from behind) to make sure nothing is obstructing the flow of water under the tub to the drain.

Turn it water?

Well it turns out that the pipes were not properly connected...however, I think the machine is very confusing anyway. This is my understanding of the Malber WD this point in time. I've only used it once. The first dial (on the left) has to do with how fast you want to spin the clothes...I set it at 600 and that seemed to be fine for perm press. The second dial has to do with the temperature...I am still is the temp of the wash or dry? Its just darn right confusing. The third dial has to do with starting the wash. I put it on 3 for perm press. Now I wonder, if I turn it to 5, delicates, will it still go straight into dry mode? As a woman, I have a lot of things I dont like to dry, so if anyone figures this out before I do, please tell.

Dry cycle

Try setting the washer dial to the stop setting at the end of setting number 4 then set the dryer timer and turn on the machine.  This works for mine to get the dryer to run by itself.  It should begin about 30 seconds later, when the door locks.  Hope this helps.

My 7 year old Malber WD 1000 won't dry - Where to order heating element?

pete5runner back again: The check you should make is to disconnect the two wires to the heating element carefully (with unit unplugged). Then connect a 110 voltmeter to the two wires. The plug in the machine and start a dry cycle. If you see 110 volts on the voltmeter, then you know that power is getting to the heating element, and you have isolated the heating element as defective. If you need a heating element, I got one in NY by calling 718-767-7396. New element was $29, shipping included. I don't know if he will ship to where you are located. Good luck, and let me know what happens.
