Blowing fuse,caused by dripping water?

Hi,my machine has started blowing fuses,they are the right ones - 13Amp,brown. I have looked under the machine,and it looks like its got some water dripping onto the long box at the bottom,(the box has a pipe from the Fluff filter, and from the drum). Even though the two contacts have a 'plastic sheet' covering them,I've noticed some water under the sheet which is making the fuse blow,when its turned on. I think its coming from an approx 4 inch square part,(possibly the pump??),as it seems to be slowly leaking from its seam,and this peice is above the 'pole' which is blowing.It is 'black' around the base of the 'pole connection',where the wetness is. Can anyone help please? As its a great machine,and is/was super reliable! Thank you :)

    The fuse still blows when the machine is dry,and the 'blow' seems to come from the black pole on that long box,as there are 'blow marks' around the terminal pole!

    I hope my machine does not have to go to the tip,as its a super machine...used every couple of days,and untill now,very very reliable!

    Any new ideas please?
    Thank you :)

Dry out the area thoroughly and restart the machine to see if fuse blows with it dry - i'm not convinced this is the cause. the part you are referring to i think is the drain pump and these do lewak sometimes. the other place to look is at the door boot which if it is holed can cause water to drip down in the same area

My machine fills with water and before the drum starts to rotate, it blows the fuse.


If your talking about tripping the breaker its designed to trip under load. Yes if something is keeping the drum from turning that put a load on the breaker and trips it..It will keep tripping until there's no over load on the drum...I'm guessing your talking about a washing machine... You can take the belt off the motor and if the motor is good it will turn on but not spin the drum...Then you know the motor is good and something is preventing the drum from turning. And if the motor is bad you can smell a burnt smell if you get close enough to the motor..Hope this helps

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.

Washing machine blown fuses


Hi - had a similar problem with about 3 different makes of washing machine - the RCD switch on the main household fuse box was continually tripping . Nobody could give me a right answer . Eventually ended up with a Hotpoint . Felt sorry for the delivery guys from the electrical retailers having to keep dragging machines in and out .
