Question about Washing Machines
Tripping the fuse as soon as it's switched on, even when switched off at the socket. Plug has to be removed before circuit will reset.
You've got a major short circuit there. Start with the cord, searching for the damage. Check the schematic, to see what is connected when the machine is off, it won' t be much.

leaks could be from anywhere. remove the top and back cover, put on a cycle and try to trace where leak is. sorry if this is not very helpful. water in filter should not smell. this may be due to using liquid detergent which causes a smell like drains if used over a period. put on a boil wash and revert to using powder

A washer should not be plugged into a gfci device. It should use a dedicated circuit just for the washer off a standard duty circuit breaker or time delay fusetron fuse. In most washers that are top loading, a diaphragm switch operates the start circuitry for the washer [ timer ] as water goes into the tub, a positive pressure acts on the diaphragm and closes a set of contacts connected to the timer that operates the several contacts for the motor and transmission. the only place there might be power is on the spade connectors on the motor, the timer, the water switch, the door lid switch. Now, if the motor is sooo old that the insulation breaks down, it will develop a fault to ground and charge the shell of the appliance to 120 volts. This is a hazard to you the user. If you have the technical knowledge get a meter and check the motor leads to equipment ground. If the meter deflects full scale on the RX1 setting you have a problem with a winding to ground short. Replace the motor. Another problem is you might have a frozen bearing which causes the motor current to shoot up, tripping a breaker or blowing a fuse. remove any belts and try spinning the motor pulley by hand to see if it is bound up. try rotating the pulley on the transmission to see IF it is bound up, do the same with the pump. if any of these things are difficult to rotate it may be the prime source of your problem. change the pump, replace the transmission bearing or work inside the transmission may be necessary. motor bearings are press fitted on the motor shaft.

Remove rear panel of washer.
Remove drive belt.
Unscrew the 2 bolts that hold motor to tub back.
Remove motor plug
Lever notor back with a screwdriver or similar, keeping a firm hold on motor.and remove motor
At the rear end of motor away from pulley you will see the brushes and the armature.
Remove brushes, and if there is less than 4 or 5mm of carbon left, then replace them.
Lightly clean the armature with emery cloth.
Refit in reverse order. Test.
Plz rate my solution.

it sounds like you have a direct short in the wiring some where on your machine.the only other option is the main control board needs to be replaced
