Question about Malber WD1000 Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Detergent doesn't drain

So I've just purchased a condo with a one-year old Malber Combination-Washer dryer, and to my dismay it doesn't reliably drain the detergent from the tray to the washer; so, for instance, it might complete an entire cycle and still have a tray full of detergent at the ends. Interestingly, the far left compartment in the detergent tray does appear to be drained on every occasion, but because this is (purportedly) the pre-soak tray, I've been reluctant to use it for a full wash. Also, the middle tray does occasionally drain, though I've yet to identify the conditions under which this happens.

Re: Detergent doesn't drain

The rod which controls the flow of water to the various compartments needs to be adjusted. It is not a difficult fix. You can contact Malber usa ( and they can "walk" you through it. In the alternative, you can put the detergent in the pre-wash tray without concern.

How do you get the water to drain in the Malber WD100 washer/dryer combo?

Hi. I''m assuming you are referring to a WD1000.
To initiate the drain cycle: Rotate far right knob CLOCKWISE to Position 4. It may take 30-45 seconds to recognize the knob's new position, but then it will begin an 11 minute Slow Tumble/Pump Out cycle. During this cycle you'll see the internal drum slowly rotate CW for 60 seconds, pause, then rotate CCW for 5 secs - then repeat. All this time the pump will run and you'll hear water running down the drain. When you hear no more water you can rotate same knob to "straight up", and stop the machine. To turn power off, press the rightmost button.

Water leakage at the faucet connection. is it a new D280 that i need? this one is only 2 years old but i can't think of any other reason. now that joel is gone, who do i call in nyc? thanks, j

These European machines have "English" (Whitworth) threads on the hose connectors. They look like American standard (NPT/NPS) threads used on everything here in the States, but are slightly different. Consequently, your hook-up hoses are special, having American NPS threads at the faucet end, and Whitworth threads at the Washer end.
Buy them from Malber. You can find Malber Distribution Corp online, or call them at 516-323-5299. Tell them Mike, in DC, says hi.

8 year old Malber non-vented washer/dryer

It depends on the machine and if it's in good shape a new set is going to cost you $1200.00 a pump about $100.00 plus labor Its really up to you if you can afford a new unit or not. You may want to ask the repairman if he thinks the machine is good enough to keep, If there is any hoses or belts since he has it a part it will save some labor and would be some preventive maintenance may lube rollers or anything else he might see. But the guy working on it would be able to see if there s any metal wear or wear on rollers and could give you a better answer than we could.see may see something that may be make it not worth it. hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

My bosch does not always completely wring the clothes out at the end of the cycle causing me to have to put the clothes through another wash. Has anyone had this problem? the end of the wash, I then set the dial to DRAIN, then press start.  I wait for a special drain cycle to run.  Then, I set the dial to SPIN, and wait for a special spin cycle to run.  The clothes are much dryer and spun out after this process.  I'm not happy with the washer, it came with my new condo.  BUT, I'm trying to learn how to use it.....

Hi. Mike here. Two "most likely" causes. (1) You simply have a leak at the lower right "cleanout trap". Remove the little white plastic "pull-out" assy. Check the black seal that looks like a little "tire". Is anything caught in it, or wrapped around it, or has it become deformed? Also, check that white plastic (2") washer, in front of it, is not warped (due to overtightening). Unscrew the "knob" (handle) part, all the way out, and separate all 4 parts. Clean knob, washer, tire (seal), and trap assy. Slip washer, then tire, onto knob's threaded "shaft". Flat side of washer goes against knob. Screw knob, washer and tire into trap assy, but only one or two turns. Then, slip entire assy back into machine's recess - and turn Clockwise to tighten. Only tighten hand tight (and I don't mean Macho tight!)
(2) If that doesn't fix, you may very well be using WAY too much detergent. These machines use only 2 or 3 (Max!) Tablespoons of HE liquid detergent. I've seen cases where folks were using 1/2 cup of liquid (or powder) and even more. That causes so much foaming that there have been overflows, from the lower right corner, even though nothing was wrong with the machine. To remedy, run a load empty, with NO detergent.
Good luck, and God bless.

What kind of detergent do I use on my Malber WD 1000?

Choice of detergent should be straightforward subject to personal preference;

Concentrated is usually more economical, as you don't have to use as much as with UNconcentrated.

Liquid or powder is no contest, it's liquid every time, it dissolves better in harder water areas and doesn't clog up your dispenser.

Brand choice depends on where you live, we use Persil but supermarket own brands are usually a lot cheaper eg Carrefour.

Hope this is useful

Please remember to give this solution a rating.

I never had this problem with my unit, but I've been using detergent that is specifically designated for front-load washers. You can find it at Target or any other store. It's supposed to reduce the amount of suds/foam build-up within the unit, so it might prevent thte flooding.

Hope this helps.
