Question about Malber WD1000 Front Load Washer/Dryer

3 Answers

What was your solution???

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 fixed it. Basically one of the thermostats is too close to the electronic heater element and also not as securely fastened as it should be. One time, when the dryer shook, the thermostat hit the element and shorted out - burning the ground wire of the thermostat.



    So I opened up the thermostat and cleaned the carbon off of the contacts inside of it. Then relocated it just slightly farther from the heater element after fixing the ground wire. Now it works perfectly - even better really because of the increased distance from the heater element so the unit now gets slightly warmer.



    Malber was no help on this. I called them up before opening up the unit and checking it myself. Their contact out in New York said that the heater element goes out...have no idea how he got that...because the heater element itself is just a thick "wire" like on an electronic stove. How that goes out I have no idea.



    Thanks for the response! Feel free to share my fix with others.

    I believe I have the same problem with the Malber wd1000 - No Heat with either dryer setting. The tub spins and sounds like it would be draining the condensed water but no heat. It just started happening this week after 3 years of use. I read about your fix and was wondering if this is something an amateur with not much electrical experience should attempt or should I give call to an electrician. Any additional details would be helpful. Thanks for your response. Kevin

    I cut a new hole in the air tube and relocated the thermostat. Covered the old hole with some tape insulation.



    Works great. Since its a little further away from the heater element the machine gets slighter warmer than it had been. I have an infrared temperature gun at work if you want the readings - If yours works fine without doing all that then don't - too much hassle.



    Cleaning the contacts on the thermostat is something you're only going to be to do once or twice. Then the thermostat will have to be replaced.

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?

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).

How do I get the Malber all in one washer dryer to dry hotter. It seems to be getting cooler and cooler. It didn't use to be a problelm. I nolonger have the manual.


There is a wire which connects to a connection towards the front of the drum itself on the right side which when the drum wobbles, comes off. When it gets loose, it may start to arc so that the spade connector needs replacing. In extremis the whole unit may need replacing. This seems to govern whether the heater elements turn on or not. If you put the connector back on, I'll bet the heater starts to work again

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 won't heat


If it is an electric heater that means that either the heating element,or the thermistor , or the cirrcuit breaker connecting the element mustbe replaced.

Malber WD1000 Dryer wont heat


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.

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


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.
