Follow you positive cable from your battery to the solenoid. There will be a smaller red wire on the same terminal or built into the battery cable. The inline fuse will be on it. Or, you can look on the right hand side under the dash about 6 inches above the bottom. The solenoid is mounted on the side and the fuse is there.

18hp craftmans will not start no clicking noise

First of all check the battery is fully charged.
If OK check the battery terminals are clean and tight.
Check that the brake is on, gearbox in neutral and disengaged, mower disengaged and you are sitting on the seat. Many mowers have safety features to prevent starting unless these conditions are met. If it still fails to start, check the starting circuit, including the switch and the solenoid. Still no luck? Check the wiring to make sure there is not a short circuit in an of the starting wiring.

Normal washing shouldn't hurt it. If you were using a pressure washer or a strong jet on garden hose you may have blown a wire off somewhere. If you were washing the deck may have blown a wire off of a safety switch down there. There is a safety switch on clutch, break, on seat(under) check those, that is where I'd start.

Craftsman DYT 4000, 24 hp 48" deck. While I was mowing, the blades stopped turning, started again, and then stopped. I shut down, all looked OK, tried to start and nothing. No click, nothing. Any ideas?

there is a fuse in engine compartment that might have blown causing the engine or blades not to start but what probably happened was something got caught in the blades check under the deck & see if there is & also try spinning blades by hand & see what happens

In my experience, and i have a good bit, when you turn the key and it always blows the fuse, the magnets under the flywheel are in direct contact with the stator (alternator). Both will need to be replaced...sorry
