You've got a short circuit somewhere in that electrical circuit.

First, unplug the washing machine.
Replace the fuse. If it doesn't blow immediately, then there is likely a short in the washing machine, and from what you describe, it's in the motor.
If it blows, then there is something wrong in that circuit, and you can likely rule out the washing machine. Check all devices on that particular circuit, of which there can be a number of plugs.

Fuse blows on Maytag A9800 Top Loader


Usually caused by a faulty door switch assembly.
Check to see if there are TWO switches being operated by the door, the smaller of the two often fails.

check if it is a 50hz or 60hz.
checkthe motor has water in it or is moisten.
check the cable for cuts.
and check if you get 120v. or more than that?

My maytag washer stoped during the cycle with 8


You may have blown the internal fuse located in the lid switch. Could be you over loaded the washer and blew the fuse.
Unplug the washer and remove the four screws holding the control panel front in place. Two screws on top and two screws under control panel.
Remove the control panel and tilt forward.
Locate the lid switch assemble and remove glass fuse and inspect.
Door switch assembly should be replaced. When you order the proper fuse it should come with the door switch assembly.
Replace assembly. Reinstall the front control panel and four screws.
Plug machine in and test.

Maytag washer model LAT9306AAE won't come on - replaced blown fuse in machine & it blew again right away.


Fuses are there to protect from overheating and further damage to the appliance and/or wiring. A blown fuse is seldom ever the root cause of a problem... It is a symptom of a short or overload somewhere else in the circuit.

Check wiring to be sure there are no bare wires showing or shorting out against each other or the frame of the machine. Check that drive and pump motors turn freely (with power cord unplugged).

Your problem is NOT the fuse alone. Replacing it without correcting the root cause will result in yet another blown fuse.

Blowing fuses


[double post]

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

But I would wait until the authorized servicer gets there (or take it to them) to maintain your warranty.

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
