Malber Washing Machines - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

The simple answer is to fault the cycle timer but some action controlled by the cycle timer, such as pump operation, may not be available at the time called for.

Malber Washing... | Answered on Nov 18, 2020

Hi. Mike here. I repair Malbers in the Washington D.C. area. The most likely problem is not the heating element, but the hi-temp (or "brown") thermostat. They cost about $25 and are very simple to install. A "Torx 1.5" screwdriver (asterisk tip) removes two screws, in back, holding top on. Lift off top, and (from the front) see silver-foil-wrapped heating assy. At lower right will be a small philips screw holding a thin wire "hasp" which holds the thermostat in place. Remove screw and hasp (without dropping in machine!), unplug two "quiik-connect" lugs (orange & red wires) and pull out thermostat to the right. New one slips right back in. Replace wires, hasp, phillips screw and top -and you're done! This is 90% sure to fix. The heating element is only about 5% likely.
One last thing ... when re-inserting new thermostat, you'll have to "wrestle" with it a bit, as the tip needs to slip into a tiny (hard to "find") hole. Keep trying, and eventually it'll fit ALL the way in, so the hasp can hold it. To purchase part, call Joel (at Malber): 800-600-8913
Oh yeah, one MORE last thing... That red wire may be burnt a little, or completely burnt in two. Radio Shack and Home Depot sell "crimp-on" lugs (1/4") like these (female). Trim back the wire, crimp a new lug on the end, and push it back onto lower terminal on thermostat. If wire is too short, of course, add a few inches of 16 guage "stranded" (lamp cord). The same stores also sell tubular "crimp-on" wire-connectors (little blue tubes) to join the old and new wires. May God bless.

Malber is no longer in business. There is no more dealer or distribution network listed in Italy or the US.

You might try calling a local appliance repair to see if they would attempt the repair. Just looking online I see where Fort Lauderdale Appliance, 1040 Bayview Dr, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304 (954) 361-2363 has a five star rating. If they don't service foreign appliances, perhaps they will recommend?

The heating element may have gone bad or is not getting current. Could be in the switch. Switch it back and forth several times.

Might be a control board problem. Contact Malber USA at 1-800-600-8913. They will have replacement part and, if the machine is still under warranty, the part is free.

Sounds to me it might be a thermal pause, if your unit is running and then is required to heat up at a certain point and reach a certain tempurature before it advances, the heater is probably not coming on. The unit will therefore not advance.
