Question about Malber WD1000 Front Load Washer/Dryer
I put my clothes in the unit and it is very loud and wabbls it is portable and it is even on the floor.
I tried all the the solutions in the back of the manual and it still doesn't dry. I also tried to dry it for 6 hours and still did not dry. Why is this, is the heating element bad or is this normal?
The dryer heating element on this machine typically burns out after about 2 years. I have replaced one on my machine. To determine whether the cause is the heating element, unplug the machine and remove the top cover. You will see an aluminum duct across the top. Near the back of the duct, two wires connect to the heating element. Get ready to connect two wires of a voltmeter to those two wires. Plug machine in and turn on dryer mode. If there is voltage of about 110 volts across the two wires (be careful) , but the top of the aluminum duct does not feel warm after acouple of minutes, the it is most likely the heating element. I got on shipped to me for $29, but it is a little tricky to install. If you are handy, you can do it.

Hello uucyc1 - From what you have described it sounds like you either have a problem with the washer tub bearing, belt, motor or trunnion (steel bar that secures the inner basket to the transmission shaft). As far as the dryer, long dry times typically are a result of poor air flow. Make sure that the dryer exhaust vent is completely clear and that the unit is not overloaded. I would suggest contacting an experiencing service technician to determine the precise cause to both units.
