My 7 year old Malber WD 1000 won't dry - Where to order heating element?

I guess I should count myself lucky that my Malber WD 1000 is 7 years old. Up until now, I've never had a problem. Now it won't dry. I've removed the cover as "pete5runner" recommended, and used a voltmeter to check the heating element. As suspected, there is no current. I'd like to order a new heating element but don't know how. How do I find a part number or a vendor for this item?
Thanks!

Pete5runner back again: The check you should make is to disconnect the two wires to the heating element carefully (with unit unplugged). Then connect a 110 voltmeter to the two wires. The plug in the machine and start a dry cycle. If you see 110 volts on the voltmeter, then you know that power is getting to the heating element, and you have isolated the heating element as defective. If you need a heating element, I got one in NY by calling 718-767-7396. New element was $29, shipping included. I don't know if he will ship to where you are located. Good luck, and let me know what happens.

Hi Pete5runner,
I'm having the same issue, heating element does not heat with my Malber WD1000, seems to be common as my neighbor is having the same issue. Do you know of a current phone number to call and get part/service? The 718 one above is on permanent busy. I'm in Brooklyn. Any help would be appreciated!
thanks!

WD 9900 does not dry


Most all dryers, including combo washer/dryers, have an electric wire coil for a heating element.
I suspect yours has given up ( they usually break in two, stopping the electrical flow). You should need to have the element replaced.
Going to need to take the whole machine apart to fix this.
Be blessed.

Need service for Malber 1000 heating element..


Hi. Mike here. I repair Malbers in the Washington D.C. area. The most likely problem is not the heating element, but the hi-temp (or "brown") thermostat. 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). The same stores also sell tubular "crimp-on" wire-connectors (little blue tubes) to join the old and new wires. May God bless.

Dryer does not heat


I don't know this machine, but I know Malber single tub machines well and this problem in the Malber machines is alost always due to a worn out heating element, similar to the heating element in an electric oven or electric stovetop range. If you have had the machine for at least several years, and noticed that the dryer was becoming less effective, then I bet it's the heating element which needs to be replaced.

Dryer won't dry


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.

Machine runs, but clothing won't dry


It sounds like your heating element is shot. The elements on this machine are very sensitive and if you use too much cleaning fluid the part will wear down after a while. You will need to get the part replaced (yuck) and start to use a little less washer fluid. Please let me know about your experience with the company (danfrogel@yahoo.com)
