Question about Malber P21 Front Load Washer
Posted by Anonymous on
I own a Malber WD1000, which is several years old. Recently, I had it transported a couple thousand miles across country, and due to the size of the pickup truck it was in, the machine had to lay on its side for the duration of the trip. Shortly afterward, the machine began making a loud banging noise during the spin cycle. Additionally, the door gasket had a "wrinkled" appearance.
After taking various panels off of the machine, I discovered the culprit. The insides of the machine (drum, etc), are more or less suspended inside the outer housing. This is accomplished by means of a pair of shock absorbers on the bottom, and a pair of large springs on top. This allows the inner workings to shake a little bit during the spin cycles, without transferring the vibrations to your floor. In my unit, one of the upper springs had come loose from the frame. The solution involved tipping the machine on its side, with the top cover off, and pulling the end of the spring back through the mounting hole in the frame, then finding a nut and bolt to occupy the additional space in the hole, so that the spring could not slip back out. Getting the end of the suspension spring properly seated again was no small task, but it solved the problem, and now the washer works just great again.
Long story short, I'd check to see if all the springs are in the proper place.

I have a Malber P21 washer on board a boat and it will not spin out the water. It is spinning but the water remains in the tub

1st the machine has to be completely level--also take off the top--there should be two springs at the top and there are also shocks at the bottom--make sure none hav come offf

Testimonial: "helpful--the machine moved so it may not be level. but the dryer is mounted on top of it so will be difficult to take off and check the top springs."
