Question about Malber WD1000 Front Load Washer/Dryer
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!
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).
