Question about Malber TD700 Electric Dryer

DRYER VERY NOISY AND VIBRATES

I HAVE HAD MY MALBER TD700 FOR ALMOST 3 YEARS NOW. LAST YEAR WE HAD TO REPLACE THE DOOR LATCH. I EMAILED MALBER AND PURCHASED A NEW LATCH. THEY WERE VERY HELPFUL AND SENT DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO PUT THE NEW LATCH ON. NOW IT IS MAKING NOISE WHEN IT TUMBLES CLOCKWISE AND IT VIBRATES AS WELL. WHEN IT TUMBLES COUNTER CLOCKWISE IT DOES NOT DO THESE THINGS. THE DRYER WORKS PERFECT OTHER WISE. COULD THIS BE A BELT PROBLEM?

Hi,

It would seem that this is a mechanical issue and therefore would require that the unit be opened for visual inspection. Based on your description, it could be the suspension system or the mounting of the tumbler. I doubt if it were the belt since any deformity of the belt would be exhibited in either clockwise or counter clockwise. It could be the belt tensioner though or the mounting of the drive motor. Often these are nothing more than rubber support much like in principle as engine support in a car.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    See if your versions has the rear panel cover held by screws. There are some version that the top has to be lifted/removed to gain access to the insides.

    Some dryers use rollers to support the clothes drum. If these
    rollers or wheels are worn out, they can be extremely noisy. You ought
    to replace the whole set at the same time. A belt that has been damaged
    or frayed may make a thumping or slapping sound as the drum turns.

    There
    are several things that can cause a dryer to be noisy. There are a lot
    of moving parts in a dryer that can cause noises to occur when they get
    worn. Several parts support the drum, and may make noise or vibrations
    when worn out

    Make sure
    nothing is loose inside the drum. Remove the lint trap and look below
    the lint trap holder for any loose items that may have slipped through
    the cracks.


    Many dryers use a center spindle to support the clothes drum. This
    spindle may be a ball-and-socket support, or it may be a shaft inside a
    sleeve. When these component bearings get worn out, they may make a
    squealing or rubbing sound. Replace this bearing when it gets worn out.
    Many dryers also use plastic glides in the front end of the clothes
    drum. When these glides are worn out, you may hear a lot of noise. If
    the glides are worn, replace them as a set.



    thank you

    dont forget to accept the solution if you are OK with it.

    have a great day

Kenmore he5 dryer doesn't run, have power, door switch works, thermal fuse, have continuity?


What does the display say? Typically, these Kenmore dryers don't run because of a door latch error. We have had to have our door latch replace 3 times in 3 years. There is a lengthy trouble shooting program to bypass the latch error but it is time consuming.

Malber WD2000 door won't open


Malbers use a thermal (heat acting) latch to hold the door closed, so it stays latched for about 2 mins after being turned off. This is to give you time to think before you open the door and possibly spill water all over your feet. When the little bi-metallic piece cools off, it bends to one side (inside the latch assy) releasing the catch, and the door can be opened. Sometimes, the bi-metallic part bends OK, but the latch catches and won't release. It just needs a little vibration to free it up. A smack to the latch area (on door or face of Washer) will free the latch.
I tell my customers: Don't pull too ******* the white door handle. If you can't open it with your little finger (seriously) it's not ready to open!

Malber combo doesn't start


This problem is usually the front door latch "interlock" is not engaging. This is the safety device which keeps you from opening the door and pouring gallons of water on your feet. When you close the door, if the machine DOESN'T recognize it's closed - all electricity is cut off and the machine does nothing. If the machine DOES recognize the door is latched, the latch will lock and you can't open the door (for about 90 secs after you turn it off or unplug it). Does the door LOCK when it's closed? If not, just close it harder several times. A medium "slam" almost always takes care of a "sticky" interlock - and it doesn't hurt anything.

We broke the door handle on our Malber 1000 Can we order a new one and can we fix it ourselves?


Mike, in Washington D.C., again. Of course you can do it yourself. First call Joel (Malber in NY) at 800-600-8913 or 516-294-6660 . Tell him which model machine you need a door latch for (if you aren't sure, check label in rear). Once you've received your new latch assy (about $20): Open door, and notice white plastic "ring" around glass is actually 2 pieces (front and rear) snapped together - with a seam around periphery. Unsnap (separate) them by either getting your fingernails into the seam and pulling them apart - or prying them open with a spackle knife or thin screwdriver blade. Once it starts coming apart, just work the opening all the way around. Remove front "ring" and set aside. Using a 1.5mm Torx screwdriver, remove 2 small screws holding broken latch assy. Note the way the ends of the spring go under the 2 screws. That's the way it has to go back. Slip new latch assy into place, pressing vertical "hinge pin" and ends of spring into slots (near screw holes). Replace 2 screws. Test latch with door open - is it working? Try closing door. All good? Replace front "ring": Open door and, while pulling out on latch handle, slip the ring over the latch handle and get it into approximate position. Let go of latch (it snaps into "closed" position) and adjust ring so it doesn't bind the latch handle (meaning it's free to move). Now, beginning anywhere on outside edge, begin snapping rings together - and continue all the way around. Test that door latch still operates smoothly and that door latches shut properly. FYI: There is no adjustment for this latch assy - it just fits precisely where it's supposed to. Good luck and God Bless ...

Sounds as if the door switch/latch had stuck.the smell was probably a small short. try unplugging unit. But I would imagine you need door latch/switch replaced

Malber doesn't even turn on.


Clight16 is very likely to be correct. I repair Malbers (in the Wash. D.C. area) and have found door switches to cause these symptoms 90% of the time. BUT, that doesn't necessarily mean replacing the switch. Here's how to test: First, check out the little square hole where the door latch (on door) fits into the machine. You'll see a white plastic "frame", and behind it, a black plastic piece that slides to the right. We'll be sliding that "slider" a little later. OK. Turn machine off (if it's been on). Wait about 2 mins until "safety latch" disengages. (Don't force handle - it can break!). Open door. Set top right knob to "Off" position. Press "Start" button (power on). Turn top right knob to "Beginning of wash cycle". Because door is open, nothing happens - yet. Finally, using a small screwdriver, or other thin object, slide that black plastic "slider" over to the right (about 1/4 inch). Don't be afraid. There is nothing anywhere back there that you can hurt - or that can hurt you. It's totally safe! That simulates the door closing and the metal latch forcing the slider over. My hunch is, the machine will start working (filling with water). If so. you have a simple (and free) fix. The problem is: the metal latch is not forcing the "slider" over to the right far enough. To fix: You need to "allow" the latch to move a little further to the right. To do this, you'll enlarge the hole (on the back of the door) the latch protrudes through. The square hole is sized to stop the spring-loaded latch in the exact right spot. Press the latch back, and file (or scrape) away a little plastic on one side of that little square hole - so when you release the latch, it snaps over a bit farther than it did before. You only need the latch to "lean" over a LITTLE farther (1/16") so only remove 1/32" of plastic. That should do it. And may God bless.

I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years this sounds like a door interlock problem, have you had it in bits, for some reason, it sounds like the wires have been reversed, it may be that the interlock has moved or been damaged, or has just gone faulty, check wires on the interlock are not shorting out, these can normally be sen after removing the lid, start with that and post if still having problem for reasons of safety the machine should not be left plugged in if children about work with safety, unplug when working on machine
