Question about Malber WD1000 Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer doesn't start

I pushed in cold water and half load, turned the dial to the right temperature, pressed start but nothing is happening.  I read somewhere the safety thermal switch might be turned off, and so I might need to reset it.  The source says: located under the top of the machine.... hmmm... what does it mean? Does anybody know where this switch is? or what else could be the problem? The washer works perfectly well.  Thank you!

    Thanks Rylee. Just reading your answer now as I had to go away for a few days. Plugging the machine off doesn't work, so I will get the part and try to change the safety thermal switch. However, when you write "The heating element is only about 5% likely." -- do you mean there is only 5% chance this is the problem? What else could it be? This is a machine which is only a year old and was used very little. Thanks.

Hi

Try turning off your machine and unplug it from the wall socket for 10-15min.s. After this is done check if it works fine. If it doesn't work then check for the hi-temp thermostat(Safety thermal switch). 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).

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

When I turn the dial on my dryer to preset drying time and pushed the button the dryer started and ran but after a half hour it was still at the same location as I had put it and the clothes were stil


Sounds like the dryer fuse-able link has opened. If this happens the timer will not advance and the heater will not go on. Check the schematic of the dryer to see where it is located. When located check the continuity, if open, that is your problem. They are located in places that are not easily accessible (usually).

When I push start nothing happens the lights are on. It stopped mid cycle while trying to rinse could the water be frozen


Switch off the machine completely. Remove all the clothes. May be one of the cloth has got stuck up with the spindle. Wait for sometime. Load again with clothes. Restart the machine and start again new washing cycle Unless you are in cold country and the temperature goes down to freezing temperatures there is no question of water freezing when the machine has been working for sometime unless it is static for a long period

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.

move the dial to the "off" position first; wait for beep; then move to the drying setting you want, and wait for another beep.

Why wont my machine start drying?


I called Whirlpool on 08706008989. The machine can only dry half a load of washing at a time. At the end of the washing cycle, the Programme dial should be at either the sun or half sun symbol. Remove half the washing, set the drying time via the drying time dial and press the 1/2 Load Dryer button - Voila dry clothes!

Neff 5644 - how does it work!??


"e" is economy - ignore this there is a selection of spin speed - most people use the fastest half load is what it says - most people wash a full load so ignore the temp dial just selects wash temp. for normal washes set to 40deg can't remember the symbols on program dial but think they are fairly self-explanatory this machine is just a washer remember to check the filter regularly
