Hi my name is Allen!
When the fuse for the wipers keeps blowing, that means either the motor has a dead short within it and must be replaced, or the wiring going to the motor is damaged and shorting out on the vehicle body somewhere and must be repaired.
Here is how you check it; replace the blown fuse, unplug the connector from the wiper motor, then turn the key on if the fuse does not blow then you need to check the wiring to the motor if the wiring is not damaged anywhere replace the wiper motor.

Wiper arms are generally held on one of two different ways. Either with a nut under a little cap that flips up above the pivot shaft, or a lock tab at the base of the wiper arm that pivots out and away a little from the pivot shaft. With either one, you will have to flip the wiper arms away from the windshield because they will not pull off the pivot shaft until the wiper blade spring tension is no longer acting against the windshield. Here's a pic of the lock tab.

pull off the guard shield at the base of the wiper arm and a nut should be exposed remove the nut if one there and it should pull off if neither is present pull the arm upwards and with a tiny pin fit into the hole causing the wiper arm to stay up and out and simply lift it off

Sounds like your windshield wiper motor has gone bad. I would suggest buying a book for your car, testing the wiper motor and replacing as necessary. Good luck!
