Probably not a fuse on the machine. Troubleshooting guides always say something like, "check fuses, check breaker" meaning to check for power to the machine first. It's the first thing to check when diagnosing problems.
I own a laundromat and had a normally very reliable machine that did everything right but it would not spin. I checked and rechecked everything and at some point it would run again and the next day broke down again. This went on for a couple months. Eventually i put the machine "out of order" and it sat for a week like that. Through trial and error, flipping the breaker on and off it became apparent that it was the breaker causing the problem. When i investigated i realized the 220 breaker had simply pulled away from the bottom and was no longer properly making full contact. It had enough power to perform all the functions but not enough to spin. After reseating the breaker the machine has been trouble free. If i'd checked that first instead of thinking the machine had plenty of power because it seemed to be doing everything else correctly i'd have saved a lot of time and frustration.

But enough about my life lessons. Does your machine have any power at all going to it?

Unplug the wiper motor and replace the fuse. If it works the wiper motor is shorted out. It may also be the wiring rubbed thrue somewhere causing a short.

My altenator keeps blowing. I can start my car, when replacing it but after the 5th start up it wont start, and i find out the altenator once again got blown some how! any suppestions?

Put a digital meter on your battery and and start your car. I assume you now have a good alternator. Check the voltage reading on the meter with the engine running. The meter should read 13.5-15 volts on the DC scale. If it doesn't, pull one fuse at a time and keep watching the meter. When I say every fuse, one at a time I mean, pull the fuse then reinstall it ....every fuse, including power windows etc. This must be done with the car running if the DC is less than posted. You sound like your alternator is pulling down. Turn on your AC and watch the meter. Turn on devices one at a time. Your watching for something that is ON pulling on it or something that is OFF pulling it when it is running.

Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load dryer wont get hot ?


If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-

1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.

2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.

3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.

4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.

Hope this helps...

Windshield wiper washer switch , the fuse keeps blowing 20a it goes about 5 times and then blows the fuse i put a 30a fuse in and it bypasses and it wont switch off / on

Do not put a larger amperage fuse in. you run the risk of the wiring over heating and starting an electrical fire. More than likely the wiper motor is starting to go bad and is drawing an unusually large amount of current which causes the fuse to blow. Replace the wiper motor.

Bad glow plugs most probably or the glow plug controller. to check your glow plugs remove wire and check with ohm meter to ground. if they are working you should get a low ohm reading if one has a high ohm reading it is bad. if all injectors check good make sure your fuses are ok, also check and see if you hear the controller click when you turn the key to on. Does the wait to start light come on?

Washer won't agitate, drain or spin

quite possible that the fuse has gone bad again, if that s the case i would recommend replacing the fuse, and the lid switch.
