Fuse blowing on model #lat8440oaa w

This machine has worked well for the three years I have owned it, butrecently I blew a fuse when I started the machine. I replaced the fuse, a 1 amp 250 volt fuse and the same thing happened. the machine is in excellent condition but dates back to 1992. the model # is lat8440aa. My question is, what is causing the problem? Is it as simple as a lid switch or is it more serious?

My washing machine has no power to it


Could have blown a circuit breaker in your electrical panel and if you have fuses could blow a fuse. You may have a short some place. Start with checking the cord and the plug its self. If you have a GFI receptacle you may have to reset that as well

How do you replace the fuse on the control board


The fuse on the CCU control board cannot be replaced.
Unless you would have a fuse that blew from age, replacing would not solve the reason why the fuse blew. A new one could equally blow when you start the machine.

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.

For the past few years the small fuse in the washing machine blew about once a year. A few months ago it seemed to blow every week. Then it was fine again. Now I replace the fuse and as soon as I turn on...


One says the lid switchs are not working in tandem with each other. Another says the circuit board is bad. I say it is because it is a Maytag and built with an obsolete ethical plan for generating profit.

Washing Machine won't turn on


the rating, is that the same with the original one.?
try running with no load, maybe the motor got problem. if okay no load. try run with a little load. if still blow the fuse even no load test. Your problem is in the motor. Or monitor carefully when the fuse blew, is it when the motor run ccw or cw?

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
