So I've just purchased a condo with a one-year old Malber Combination-Washer dryer, and to my dismay it doesn't reliably drain the detergent from the tray to the washer; so, for instance, it might complete an entire cycle and still have a tray full of detergent at the ends. Interestingly, the far left compartment in the detergent tray does appear to be drained on every occasion, but because this is (purportedly) the pre-soak tray, I've been reluctant to use it for a full wash. Also, the middle tray does occasionally drain, though I've yet to identify the conditions under which this happens.
The rod which controls the flow of water to the various compartments needs to be adjusted. It is not a difficult fix. You can contact Malber usa ([email protected]) and they can "walk" you through it. In the alternative, you can put the detergent in the pre-wash tray without concern.
