Question about Malber WD1000 Front Load Washer/Dryer

Spacers and Balance

When I received my machine, it was already out of the box and the four hexnut screws were tampered. How do I know whether the spacers were removed? Were they an internal items or external. THanks. Next, what is the best way to balance the machine, I am not having much luck especially when the unit is tightly in a closet space and hard to reach the back levering machinism.

Re: Spacers and Balance

Take the lid off the spacers should be at the back but when u undue the big hex screws at the back they usually fall out anyway now easiest way to balance is by just using the front adjusters and not the back make slight adjustment on each leg just so you stop swaying from side to side you dont make the washer level level you need it to sloop slightly backwards anyway to stop water from coming out of the soap drawer another thing i do when leveling a washer is once u turn 1 leg with 1 hand hold the washer by the top so u stop it from rocking now adjust the other leg up until that 1 hits the floor and turn once more now try and rock it if it doesnt move from side to side now your done dont adjust the back legs more than likely it doesnt have legs at the back most have wheels on the back now anyway m8

My machine has been coming up with F.06 on it and i cant find the manual to find what this means

This error code indicates that the motor is having difficulty turning.

Are the shipping bolts removed?
All four (4) shipping bolts and the plastic spacers must be removed from the rear of the washer before you operate it. Each unit is shipped from the factory with four bolts, which are designed to secure the washer during shipping. Failure to remove all of the shipping bolts, and the four plastic spacers that are with them, can result in noise, vibration or error codes.

When they are removed, to remove the error display, press Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel twice.
If Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and the condition above has been checked, call for service.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(If you haven't already, try my guidance notes on leveling, please!)

I mostly answer front load problems but ' out of balance' is a common problem with both!
So- I don't know your particular machine but the initial cure is the same.
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

Kenmore washer (110.92389200) drains, but will not agitate or spin; also, cannot turn the basket by hand. Where is the access for service?

check the motor coupling,take out the two screws that hold down the top console,flip up the console,unplug the lid switch harness in the middle or a little to the right from the middle and with a screw driver pop the two metal clips,tilt the frame to you and remove the whole frame of the washer.with a screw driver pop the two clips holding the pump on and slide the pump forward off the motor.take out the two screws and pop the motor clips and pull the motor forward,you'll see the motor coupling,there should be three arms coming off the coupling and three arms on the other part of coupling and a piece of rubber that they slide into,if it's cracked or worn in the middle replace the coupling and cut down on the size of the loads you put into washer.when putting the motor back on look at the four corners of the motor,if any of the rubber spacers are missing look where the motor goes and take the rubber spacers off the frame and stick them in the four corners of the motor and then line the motor up and install it,it's to hard to get the motor back if you don't do this.good luck and let me know what you find,if you need any more help let me know

Washer will agitate but will not spin can hear noise but no movement drains fine im a plumber so that all checks out

there's a coupling that's in between the motor and gear box,remove the pump,unclip the motor,there might be two screws holding the clips in,on the rear motor shaft you'll see part of the coupling,look inside and you'll see the other half connected to the gear box,use a screw driver and pop that part off,then install the two pieces of the new coupling and the rubber that goes in between the plastic parts,i use a 7/16 nut driver and pump plyers to put the pieces on the shafts,line up the plastic piece put the nut driver in the center and hit the nut driver with the plyers,make sure you get the four rubber spacers and put them back on the four corners of the motor,it's easier to reinstall the motor,if you need any more help let me know,the part number is 285753A

I have a whirlpool washer electric works well to wash and everything but when it does the spin shake and make a lot noise. So I already set the machine on level but it does the same. anybody can help me...

Could be bad baseplate spacers(3), a bad balance ring, or a broken spring on the base. 4 springs serve to stabalize this washer. 3 are mounted on the baseplate and center up the tub allowing for some lateral movement. These rarely fail. Another spring attaches at the rear of the base and the rear wall. This one does tend to fail.

depends some modles have 2 clips under the front left and right you stick your putty knife in there and pull the console up, also there could be end caps get a screw driver and pop them off then there will be 2 screws remove them. Then some models have 2 screws directly behing the consol remove them pull consol forward and up. Once you have got the consol situated there are 2 copper brakets push down and out with your screw driver this will release the cabinet soyou can replace the lid switch

No problem when the spacer fell to the bottom. You can tilt the machine to get it out from underneath but normally there should be no problem

Spacer and balance

The Malber has spacers but does not have a lever in the back so I am not sure what brand of machine you have. If it is the Malber, the spacers in the back are internal and need to be removed. They can be accessed by removing the hex screws and then removing the back panel. The spacers should fall to the bottom of the machine when the hex screws are removed. They can then be retrieved easily with the back panel removed. Be careful reaching into the back of the machine as there are many sharp edges in there.
