Malber 1000 Washer Dryer--Dryer doesn't heat

After reading advice on this site, I opened my malber's top, and saw a burned out red wire. It actually looked like it had been cut, but the plastic casing is burned/melted. Previously, the dryer ran but didn't heat. I tried reconnecting the wire, and now the dryer doesn't run at all.

If this is still a problem, where is the red wire attached. Can you send a photo?

Need service for Malber 1000 heating element..


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.

What was your solution???


I also had this problem. I looked on this site and before even opening up the machine, ordered a new heating element. After I received the new heating element which came with a service booklet, I opened the top of my machine. I started to begin the process of getting to the heating element(a very long process) when I noticed a red wire connecting to the thermostat was burnt and its plastic insulator was melted. I then pulled out the thermostat (a very long needle) and took the advice of Jagjared and opened up the thermostat and cleaned it. I then cut the burnt part of the red wire and connector off and stripped a small amout of the red wire and attached a new insulated connector that I purchased at the hardware store. I then reinserted the thermostat(which took a while because its hard to find the hole that the needle goes into) and then connected both hot and ground wires. I'm not sure what Jagjared meant when he said that he was able relocate the thermostat because I'm only able to place it exactly where I pulled it out. Maybe he can explain?? Anyway, this was a very easy fix. I think I'm pretty handy but would consider myself only an amatuer when it comes to issues like this. I think I might have had a very difficult time actually replacing the heating element so I'm glad I didn't have to. Hope this helps you all.

Malber WD1000 Dryer wont heat


I have a bit of experience with Malbers. When the dryer won't heat the most likely cause is the heating element wearing out. See my other posts to the same problem by saerching Malbers problems here. If you need more help, contact me.
