Question about Malber WD1000 Front Load Washer/Dryer

How long can drain run be

I am installing a Malber WD1000. I would like to permanently connect it to the plumbing under the bathroom sink. The drain 23" from the floor and I can access both the hot and cold pipes there. The only problem is that the closest I can get the machine to the sink is 7 feet. Is that too far. The directions say 6 feet from the drain and 5 feet from the water source. I am hoping that there is a little room to extend those numbers.

Anyone have experience with this?

Malber WD1000 wont condense the water that is fed through during the drying cycle


Since it drains properly during the wash cycle, we know the drain pump and its impeller (propeller) work, and the coin trap (you called it a filter) and hoses are not clogged. By the way, turning the rightmost knob to "4" will start the pump-out cycle, so you don't have to open that trap-door at the bottom. To condense, the machine needs COLD water (spritzing on an internal screen) during drying. Make sure your cold water hose is connected to the outside (outboard) connection on the back of the machine. As a long shot: If the gray drain hose is pushed too far down into your home's drain pipe (more than 8") there could be a "back-siphon" where dirty water siphons back into the washer. It's a long shot, but it does happen.
Lastly, the controller board (mounted at top of right side) could be bad, and not sending on-off commands to the pump during drying. During drying, the drain pump should cycle on and off constantly, every few minutes. Do you hear it running? If you remove back (about 12 Torx screws), at your lower left you will see the pump. There are only 2 wires (120 VAC) and they can be connected either way. Stick a meter on the terminals and see if power is cycling on and off. If not, the controller board is bad.
You can order one from Malber (in NYC) by calling Nancy at 516-323-5299. Tell her Mike, in Wash. D.C., says hi.

How do you get the water to drain in the Malber WD100 washer/dryer combo?


Hi. I''m assuming you are referring to a WD1000.
To initiate the drain cycle: Rotate far right knob CLOCKWISE to Position 4. It may take 30-45 seconds to recognize the knob's new position, but then it will begin an 11 minute Slow Tumble/Pump Out cycle. During this cycle you'll see the internal drum slowly rotate CW for 60 seconds, pause, then rotate CCW for 5 secs - then repeat. All this time the pump will run and you'll hear water running down the drain. When you hear no more water you can rotate same knob to "straight up", and stop the machine. To turn power off, press the rightmost button.

Hi, How do I open the door on a Malber wd1000 when is it stuck after the cycle is over?


Some machines require it to be empty of water to allow the door to open.Try dropping the drain hose low into a bucket to allow it to open, then clean the filter as it may be blocked causing this problem... Good luck

My Malber WD1000 over floas and does not dry = can you advise me


First off, I have found that my machine gets clothes 90% dry (or 75%). Also, when I first installed mine, I did not properly drain it. The drain hose you notice comes out the bottom of the machine, goes up to the top and then goes back down again. I had to take the hose from there back up again to create a trap that held the water so it did not flow back into the machine. (I figured this out by disconnecting the hose entirely and letting the water run onto the ground.
Hope this helps.

I lost manual . there are a lot water inside. how


To get the water out , bring the machine forward

Take the drain hose out of the waste pipe

Remove any clips holding it to the back of the washer

Lower the hose into a bucket and the water will drain out under gravity

As for the knob it is a replaceable part but you will need to contact Malber

Drum does not spin


I had similar problem recently. It turned out the main controller right above the drain hose exit on the back was the problem. I got a new board from MALBER and replaced it myself. It is working now.
