Question about Malber Washing Machines

1 Answer

The detergent dispenser on my Malber P31 has become detached from the functions panel. The plastic has snapped away gradually from each of the 7 screws. Can it be fixed?

It is a Malber P31 front loading washing machine, dryer on top. The machine works fine, it does not leak and while the detergent dispenser door does not close properly, it still disperses the detergent. Only when it is on the spin cycle does it rattle so much that it needs to be held in place. The actual "drawer" in which you pour the detergent is fine. When you slide the drawer in, there is no support to hold it in place as the plastic has broken away bit by bit. There are 7 screws, on the panel itself, that no longer can hold anything in place.

At some point the support came loose and when the drawer was pushed in at probably broke more of the plastic away from the mounting screws. The only way to fix it properly is to replace it with a new one.

SOURCE: Machine stops in Rinse & Spin Cycle & leaks water

suspect problem is that water is not draining fast enough so when machine gets to spin there is too much water present which gets thrown up thro thew soap drawer. check the filter. on many hotpoint filter is not obvious. at back, take off bottom panel. you will see a large dia hose going from bottom of machine to pump. undo this hose at the tub end and the filter is inside it. be carefull. if you havn\'t managed to drain, a lot of water will come out. if this doesn\'t work, get back to me if you want

SOURCE: water is leaking out of detergent dispenser- big time

Water pressure may be too high,try turning the cold water feed pipe (usually the blue one)down a little,not too much though.If this does not solve it,is the machine lying level front to back? If not pack up the front of washer until level.If still no good take out dispenser drawer completely check for obstruction inside housing of machine. Also while drawer is out clean the underside or top of dispenser housing with an old toothbrush or similar tool,(you will see several pin holes where the water comes out when filling).To take out dispenser open drawer fully and there should be a clip at top back of drawer that you push while pulling drawer at the same time.Hope this is useful to you.

Dishwasher Detergent Dispenser not opening


An automatic dishwashermag-glass_10x10.gif detergent dispenser door can become stuck for a few different reasons. Some problems are easy to fix, while some require more work. Repairs are basically the same no matter what brand of automatic dishwasher you have, although specific parts might be required. Fortunately, even if the detergent dispenser needs to be replaced, the problem is not an emergency. The dishwasher will clean dishes fine even with a stuck detergent dispenser.
    Fixing a Stuck Automatic Dishwasher Detergent Dispenser
  1. Step 1 Move the basket that holds silverware as far from the detergent dispenser as possible, or make sure no tall items are blocking the dispenser. Also, keep other items such as plates and pans away from the dispenser. Anything that winds up touching the dispenser during the wash cycle can cause the dispenser door to stay closed. Run the dishwasher to see if this solves the problem.
  2. Step 2 Remove the front door panel according to your instruction manual, or find the manufacturer's instructions online, which will probably be in a PDF file. The panel is typically held on by 6 to 8 screws along the edge, which you can see when the door is open. With most models, you won't need to remove the screws at the bottom of the door, which are part of the hinge assembly.
  3. Step 3 Clean the detergent dispenser thoroughly from the inside of the dishwasher and the exterior side as well. Accumulated detergent and other material can interfere with the spring mechanism or halt the pivot action of the door. Use very hot water and a micro-sized brush. You also can use a mix of hot water and vinegar.
  4. Step 4 Most dispensers have a bimetallic strip or switch, attached by screws, which triggers the door release. With the front door panel removed, locate the switch, and push on it gently with a screwdriver until the dispenser door opens. You might simply need to adjust the alignment of the switch.
  5. Step 5 Purchase a new switch if re-aligning the old one does not fix the problem. Typically, these switches cost under $10. See Resources for a link to different manufacturers where you can buy the part.
  6. Step 6 Label the two wires connected to the switch so you can correctly reconnect them afterward, and then remove them from the terminals by holding the slip-on connectors --- not the wires --- and pulling firmly. Use a pair of needle-nosed pliers for a better grip. Then remove the switch from the dispenser by removing the screws holding it in place. Connect the wires to the terminals of the new switch, and attach the new switch to the detergent dispenser. Replace the door panel.
  7. Step 7 Run the dishwasher again to see if the switch replacement has done the trick. If not, decide whether to replace the entire dispenser according to the manufacturer's instructions, or call a repair technician.

Soap dispenser does not open during wash cycle


  • Hi,


    please try this...
    imer:
            On mechanical set ups the timer is attached to the detergent cup by an actuator arm. This arm is usually plastic, and if it is broken or otherwise defective then the detergent cup wont be opened. Check the linkage to make sure it is functioning correctly.
    Bi-metal switch or wax motor:
            The bi-metal switch is simply a very precise device that warps, bends, or otherwise deforms when power is supplied to it. The timer operates the bi-metal switch, which inside the dishwasher door. Then the switch is supplied with power and it is working properly, the bi-metal switch deforms away from the latch holding the detergent cup closed and the cup opens dumping the detergent into the washer.
            Some dishwashers have this switch wired through the motor power feed or the heating element. If they are defective then the detergent door will not operate correctly. If the switch itself is defective then you will need to replace it. Another type of mechanism is a wax motor. Wax motors are sealed units filled with wax and found in newer dishwashers and work by heating the wax and forcing up a piston which in turn mechanically opens the detergent cup door. This type of device is also controlled by the timer.
     
    Detergent cup:
            Sometimes the detergent cup becomes built up with old detergent that prevents it from opening correctly. It's usually a simple fix to clean this out. If cleaning it is impossible then you may need to replace the cup assembly.

    please rate my suggestion..

Leaking


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.

Removing the detergent dispenser


I have the same problem--mine is about 10 years old. To disassemble, looks like you will need to disassemble the complete door--screws around the inside edge of the door. At that price for a replacement dispenser, I will either try to fix or replace the blue arm, or replace the dishwasher. I don't believe its worth putting that kind of money in an old dishwasher.

Bleach/fabric softener compartment


The detergent dispenser is located above the detergent drawer. A water pipe is connected to it and water entrance and distributed to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle) by a lever's movement (part of the dispenser). The lever movement is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer. By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser. Disconnect the power cable from the machine before moving to next test !!!! Look first that they are not any disconnected wires. Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movement). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit). In case it works properly (manually) - you should test by a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced. Good luck !!
