Question about Malber TD700 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer stopped working after working w/door open or closed

My Malber TD700 dryer (110v) stopped working completely after two odd things happened:
1. two weeks ago it would work with door closed AND door opened (after functioning normally)
2. two days ago I smelled a slight burning smell and thought perhaps something got too hot, but I ultimately could not identify source of burning smell. It did not seem to come from overheated clothes.

Yesterday when I tried the dryer, it did not work at all. No light, no noise, nothing.

    I am looking forward to more input, but this sounds reasonable. I'll report back when problem gets resolved.

    It was the door switch that needed replacing. I ordered it from for under $20 and 15 minutes later (most of that time spent looking for necessary tools), the problem was fixed. My dryer is back to normal!

Sounds as if the door switch/latch had stuck.the smell was probably a small short. try unplugging unit. But I would imagine you need door latch/switch replaced

The door handle has fallen off -I can't open the dryer

For now, take a wire clothes hanger and bend a small 90 degree hook on the end. Poke the hook in one of the holes where the handle went and pull the door open. Then maybe you can find a replacement handle.

I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years this sounds like a door interlock problem, have you had it in bits, for some reason, it sounds like the wires have been reversed, it may be that the interlock has moved or been damaged, or has just gone faulty, check wires on the interlock are not shorting out, these can normally be sen after removing the lid, start with that and post if still having problem for reasons of safety the machine should not be left plugged in if children about work with safety, unplug when working on machine

Dryer has power but won't start

have you verified that power is actually getting to the unit? the symptoms to describe a "start capacitor issue" are excessive current draw and hum noise when starting. your dryer most likely uses a different starting method: motor has 2 coils, one for start, one for run.
