Question about Malber WD1000 Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Loose Wheel and Leak

I have two problems with my Malber WD1000.

1. The nut on the wheel is loose. Every time I tighten, it just loosens up again. Any suggestions? Should I get new nut. Any idea where to get one?

2. Second problem... Sometimes during the spin cycle soapy water is leaking out somewhere close to the front right of the machine. I checked the hoses and could not find any holes or loose connections. This does not happen every time, usually with larger loads. Any idea on what the cause is or how to fix it?

I have a maytag bravos washer model # MVWX550XW0. It won't spin and the lid lock flashes. Diagnostics showed only the lid lock flashing. I replaced the shift actuator and the lid lock switch. I tried using...

go back down where the actuator is and check the nut nut that holds the belt pulley on,i found this loose before,if it is loose you need to buy blue locktight,add it to the threads of the nut and tighten it with the locktight in it so it won't loosen up again,also does it drain the water out?if not it won't spin,the water first has to drain before it will spin,if water still there remove it with a shop vac and check the pump

I have a whirlpool washer, awd/d5516. The drive belt keeps coming off about once a week and the problem is the bolt that holds the wheel to the drum at the back comes loose, even when I tighten it hard. ...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Put on a new belt amyway- they are not expensive.
Is there a lock washer behind the nut? If so replace it with a new one AND use some 'Loctite' or equivalent on the thread before tightening the nut. Failing 'Loctite' use some nail polish!

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Big nut that holds tub and agitator in place keeps coming loose

Try to put some red thread lock on it. Red is permanent and blue is not permanent. I would use the red if you do not need to take apart again.

Good Luck

The 13/16 nut that holds the tub down keeps falling off

II suspect it is bad design, imagine that. We are having the same problem. After replacing the nut and using lock tight on threads, it worked two days and loosened again. My next attempt will be to "stake" the nut in place. This involves using a chisel and hammer to lock the nut in place by deforming the nut and shaft with a 90 degree dent. A second alternative will be to drill and install an allen head screw to lock shaft threads to nut.

I have a Whirlpool Duet HT washer [12-4-2003] and I'm on my 3rd pulley and 4th belt. I am convinced This is a inherent design flaw. I've used Loc-Tite and the nut loosened, but the last time I used gorrilla glue. The nut didn't come loose but the pulley failed and now I need giant vice grips or I may have to cut the nut off with my Dremmel. My hypothesis is when the drum is overloaded it puts stress on the shaft/pulley connection and the softer metal gives way. Over time the key becomes rounded and the pulley starts to wobble, thus leading to belt failure. My next version. Im considering drilling into the shaft and installing a cotter pin to keep the nut from backing off. Either way the problem originates with the pulley design.
PS. I will never buy another whirlpool product. 070498b6-8a05-400f-aab6-d2f7fbf10685.jpg
