Fuses keep blowing out

The fuse on my washer control keeps blowing out? The fuse was blowing out twice a year. Now the fuse is blowing every 2-3 loads. No water goes in the drum - washer just stops.

Why is this?

IF water is not going in the drum It sounds like the water valve coil has finally failled , It has been blowing fuses ,because the ccoil on the water valve was getting weak . change this water valve and you sohould be ok , but before doing so chaeck to see if you have the proper voltage going to this valve when It is calling to open ,if the power is there and the water is turned on the valve should be letting water in the machine . you can also take a ohm meater and check the valve for proper resistance . . If the machine is up in years I would change this valve . from the chack I mentioned earlier . hope this helps you

Where do u find the fuse or circuit breaker on a may tag washer model Lot8506aae

Dear Jenn,
All fuses or circuit breakers on washers are located inside the top control panel, with the exception of the switch attached to the electric motor itself.
I looked up your model number on the "Sears Parts Direct" website, and here is what I found.
Sears says your model number is "LAT8506AAE".
I do not know how to make my computer print or even show a blow-up picture of the washer parts, but you should try it and see for yourself.
Your washer might not have a fuse or a circuit breaker in it.
If it does not, you will need to replace the defective part, and it might be the timer, but be absolutely sure to check the lid switch first, as this is the most likely part to fail and keep it from working.
God bless your efforts.

How to repair maytag washer so it stops blowing fuses

The problem may not be with the washer, you may have it plugged into a circuit that made to carry the load. Check the owners manual to see if it tells you what the draw is and then see if that circuit is made to carry that large of a load

Washer keeps blowing fuses

Do you mean the houses circuit breaker? If so, WHEN in the cycle does it blow the circuit breaker? WHEN it trips will tell you what to look at. I.E. If the circuit breaker trips during the fill cycle then it would be the walter inlet valve or the timer in the control panel; if it trips as soon as it is in the agitator cycle - then the motor or transmission; if it trips in the spin cycle - then the drain pump or transmission or control panel.

Fuse keeps blowing out in my maytag washing machine

the power surge probably shorted out something in the main wire harness or fried your motor. remove the screws from the control panel and look for any wires that are discolored, charred or disconnected. in the event you do't find it there trace the wiring thru the cabinet looking for the same thing. if you don't find that, replace the motor
