Grey wire come off on Malber WD1000 dryer

Grey wire seems to connect (through wiring loom) dryer fan to some connector on front / right of drum. The bare wire (there is no male spade or female terminal anywhere I can see) seems to end very near a right hand terminal on a secondary thermostat? is it safe to connect the wire to that terminal please? I have a wiring diagram but cannot see where it is supposed to go and it doesn't look long enough to go onto the main thermostat which is a few inches further forward (I do know that the main thermostat is what usually shakes its wire off as the drum spins)

I have a bit of experience with Malbers. When the dryer won't heat the most likely cause is the heating element wearing out. See my other posts to the same problem by saerching Malbers problems here. If you need more help, contact me.

SOURCE: Grey wire come off on Malber WD1000 dryer

Your picture was a big help in figuring out your problem.
The "secondary thermostat" (the little round one) has two terminals, both designated "T13". An orange wire connects the left terminal to the top of the "Working Thermostat" (nearer the front - with long sensor probe), and TWO gray wires connect to the right terminal.
In your picture, one of the wires looks brown. It's not. That's just a gray wire that got hot. Connect your loose gray wire (it should be marked T13) to it, so both gray wires connect to the right terminal spade.
So your hunch was correct.
Funny, I've repaired 40-50 WD1000s over the last 8 years, and I've never seen or heard of a machine shaking these spade connectors off. They go on TIGHT, and stay on! So, your experience is a new one for me.

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.

WD1000 Cnn anyone tell me the color of the wires location on the thermostat, the small thermostat next to the large one anf the round preheat unit near by. THANKS


If I understand your question correctly . . .
Here are the wire colors connecting to the heater enclosure:
From the front, on the right side of the heater assembly (wrapped in shiny foil): First, the "working thermostat" (which cycles heat on and off to maintain 155 deg) - red on bottom, gray on top. That gray wire goes over to the right, connecting to either side of little round "overtemp - klixon" sensor, at a double connector (two gray wires). A brown wire goes to other side of klixon sensor.
At rear of heater assy is another klixon sensor and the ends of the heating element itself From L to R: Short black "jumper" wire goes from left connector (Klixon) over to far right connector (on heating element). Long black wire goes 2nd to L, and long red wire goes 2nd to R (again on heater).

How do I get the Malber all in one washer dryer to dry hotter. It seems to be getting cooler and cooler. It didn't use to be a problelm. I nolonger have the manual.


There is a wire which connects to a connection towards the front of the drum itself on the right side which when the drum wobbles, comes off. When it gets loose, it may start to arc so that the spade connector needs replacing. In extremis the whole unit may need replacing. This seems to govern whether the heater elements turn on or not. If you put the connector back on, I'll bet the heater starts to work again

Drum does not spin


I had similar problem recently. It turned out the main controller right above the drain hose exit on the back was the problem. I got a new board from MALBER and replaced it myself. It is working now.

What was your solution???


I also had this problem. I looked on this site and before even opening up the machine, ordered a new heating element. After I received the new heating element which came with a service booklet, I opened the top of my machine. I started to begin the process of getting to the heating element(a very long process) when I noticed a red wire connecting to the thermostat was burnt and its plastic insulator was melted. I then pulled out the thermostat (a very long needle) and took the advice of Jagjared and opened up the thermostat and cleaned it. I then cut the burnt part of the red wire and connector off and stripped a small amout of the red wire and attached a new insulated connector that I purchased at the hardware store. I then reinserted the thermostat(which took a while because its hard to find the hole that the needle goes into) and then connected both hot and ground wires. I'm not sure what Jagjared meant when he said that he was able relocate the thermostat because I'm only able to place it exactly where I pulled it out. Maybe he can explain?? Anyway, this was a very easy fix. I think I'm pretty handy but would consider myself only an amatuer when it comes to issues like this. I think I might have had a very difficult time actually replacing the heating element so I'm glad I didn't have to. Hope this helps you all.
