Question about Washing Machines
I have a Malber WD800 that I hook up via my kitchen sink. Lately the pump makes a loud buzzing/grinding noise as if it's trying to draw in water but it takes several minutes before the water starts to fill.
Any advice on how to fix this?
My malber sounds like a jet plane lifting off at various points during the cycle, when it's spinning, I am pretty sure. Any ideas?

The thing making noise is probably the inlet valve, not the pump. The pump pumps the used water out the drain hose. Anyway, if the noise happens when water is trying to come in, the inlet valve is probably faulty. Onw way to get around this without repair is this: If you are hooking up to the sink, that means you are using only one hose to the machine. The other inlet to machine is probably capped off. Remove the cap, and the hose to the respective inlets, and reverse. You will probably have to change your water temp selectors on the front of the machine. If this makes it run OK, then you can later buy an inlet valve and replace at your leisure. For parts call 718-767-7396 in NY. I hope they will ship to where you are. Good luck and let me know what happens.
