Malber WD1000 Dryer wont heat

I opened top and found a wire had burnt close to a connection in front. I'm not sure if it is the thermostat it says "caution live parts" on it, about an inch tall with a red wire and an orange wire going into it. I'd like to try to replace it but can't find one online specifically for Malber. How can I buy a different one... if that is what it is...

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.

Had the same problem. Went to a hardware store with the burnt peice and they gave me a new one for 40 cents. My husband reconnected it. It worked fine for about a week. Tonight, the dryer stopped heating again. Not sure why yet. Hope the hwole heating element isn't broken. If so, any suggestions on how to fix it?

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.

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).

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.

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.
