I have a problem, I hope you can assist me Fisher & Paykel washing machine Pride 5.5 smart drive 9 Printed circuit on main circuit board has a problem,fuse keeps blowing circuit board number...


Hi Norm33,

The often found cause of this problem is the door interlock. There is a safety feature to stop any operation while the door is open. If this becomes faulty, the washer may still not work even when the door is closed. Check that when closing the door, the catch is activating the switch. To test the switch, first make sure the WASHER IS NOT PLUGGED IN, then use an electrician's meter to test the resistance across the switch. You should put the two electrodes on the contacts at the back of the switch. When the door is closed, the resistance reading should read a very low value.

Another possible cause for this is a fault on the timer. You should inspect the connecting wires for any sign of burnt plastic or charring on the spade connectors. You will need to replace the timer if this is the problem. Please dont forget to rank me.

Regards
ELLIN

Location of fuse in fisher& paykel washing machine


Fuse is tiny round redish brown thing bout the diameter of a pen.non replaceable in later models,Grey boards & Brown boards.they are soldered in & in most cases other damage is caused when they blow,I don't know why they even bother putting one in.
Earlier models such as Blue,Yellow & Green boards have a glass fuse you can replace but like i said before the minute you put a new one in & turn it on they blow straight away because there is other damage caused when it blew the first time,but some times it actually works.

Does not heat ; timer OK, natural gas dryer gas


In most cases, a failure to heat is caused by a blown thermal fuse or high limit thermostat. Usually it is the fuse, but the fuse may be blown due to a defective thermostat. To find the location on your specific machine (and purchase the parts) try www.appliancepartspros.com To test the fuse, WITH THE MACHINE UNPLUGGED, put an ohmmeter or continuity tester across the fuse with it's wires unhooked. It should have continuity. If it is open, replace it. If the thermal fuse blows, it is fairly common to find the dryer vent partially blocked as well. Make sure it is clear. Thermal fuses are fairly cheap, but you don't want to have to replace it every other week. Good luck.

Maytag performa dryer suddenly stopped working, as if no power. i replaced both fuses and it worked. ran for about 15 mins and stopped again. any suggestions?


did it blow the fuses a second time.try this .put your dryer on a cycle that wont call for heat and turn it on.if the heat strips are not on and it still blows a fuse it is the motor.if the heat strips are on and it blows a fuse the heat strips are the trouble.

Maytag washer


check the resistance or grounded part in the unit. find the schematics and manually check the resistance of each part and find also which one is grounded. this would make the fuse blow.

Washing machine fuse blows every couple of washes


the machine is pulling to much power.check to see if it is on a 15 or 20 amp outlet. you said you replaced the fuse. the amp size should be on it. if it is a 15 amp fuse,plug the machine into a 20 amp circuit and see if the fuse blows then. it shouldn't since it wasn't blowing everytime on the 15 amp circuit, but never put a 20 amp fuse in a 15 amp socket! the fuse can handle the load[ no pun intended], but the electrical wire would burn not blowing the fuse, thus causing a fire.
hope this helps.
