New Malber wd1000...how do you unlock the dryer..picked up at store
HI..i just bought a floor model and after the wash cycle it doesn't kick into dry...i think you have to unbolt some screws from the dryer or set it up properly..they forgot to give me the manual and it's in the mail but i need to use it...wash works but doesnt' go into dry cycle when finished...tried everything with settings so i think there is something to do to the machine for set up?? Some type of bolts have to be removed..called them but they will only send the manual or make an apt for a month away for someone to come..HELP...thanks

TURN THE MACHINE OFF NOW.
If the machine still has the transit brackets fitted (which is what I think your post implies), operating it in a wash cycle is likely to lead to severe damage to the machine and could be quite dangerous too.
You can find a copy of the manual here:
Before you use the machine again, suggest you look at page 2, and check that everything that should have been removed actually has been.
Turning to the question you actually asked, failure to go into a tumble cycle isn't really the sort of thing that would normally associate with packaging having been left in place. Skimming through the manual, there are hints (see page 14) that you're meant to do some counterintuitive things to make the dryer work on this model - like keeping the "half load" button pressed in. Making sure "Spin Cancel" is out is a bit more obvious, but just as important.
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.
- Better answers use proper spelling and grammar.

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.
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
I never had this problem with my unit, but I've been using detergent that is specifically designated for front-load washers. You can find it at Target or any other store. It's supposed to reduce the amount of suds/foam build-up within the unit, so it might prevent thte flooding.
