Question about Malber WD1000 Front Load Washer/Dryer
I have the same problem with my MALBER WD1000 - Opened up the top and had a burnt wire to a sensor on the heater element. Did you add a fuse and reattach? Ever find why that connection burnt out - was it a failed element drawing too much current?
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.

To fix Malber WD1000 dryer that is not heating: My husband and I followed Jagared's instructions, and they worked perfectly - and we not exceedingly handy.
1. We took off the top of the unit.
2. Located the thermostat. It is part H220 on the WD1000 schematic. The schematic on the Malber site.
3. Originally we snipped off the melted red wire and replaced it with a part from Radio Shack (1/4" crimp wire disconnects).
4. The dryer still did not work. The thermostat appeared slightly burned. We cleaned off the connections on the thermostat with alcohol (we did not even open it) and scraped off some of the charred plastic.
5. The dryer worked, but we will still replace the thermostat part H220 (which is available on the Malber site), because this is a temporary fix.

The wire gets hot, but as long as the connection is still good, you should be OK. What exactly is your prtoblem? No heat to dryer?
