I have a Maytag Atlantis MAV 7600CGW that keeps blowing the 10A fuse prior to the switch mechanism. This has happened 6 times in the last 12 months. Every time it is the 1st load after after a heavy load...

I have found the possible cause to your fuse problem, I would suggest replacing your lid switch to the unit, this can cause you fuse to blow. Item #3 below is the switch Part# is 22003804, I and hopeful this will correct the problem for you. Is part should con with the Item #7 in the picture also, replace them both, made even be a different color. I think gray is the color right now.
I hope this helps kidlmo_5.gif

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.

Hotpoint wma62 keeps blowing the fuse in plug started week ago would go couple times then blow another fuse now when i switch on blows it straight away

I assume that you have the correct amperage fuse fitted, and that the plug and socket are o/k.
I would start by unplugging the motor lead from the motor, if it still blows, remove the leads from the heater
.If it still blows, then it could any one of a number of things.
However, there is more than a good chance, it will be the heater or motor.
If it is the motor that has caused the problem then before you do anything about it, check the control module in the top of the washer,as there is a very strong possibility that it will have blown the board, I have come across this on many occasions.
This being the case, then it is not going to be economical to repair.
Hope this helps.

Maytag washer blows 1.5A fuse in back of the top compartment where the dial etc is

There is a micro switch next to the fuse. It is shorted out. Replace the micro switch and solve your problem.

My washing machine keeps blowing he fuse in the plug

That means that there is a short or a contact inside the machine.

The short can be on power cable, on control panel, on in the internal wiring harness.

Fuses keep blowing out

IF water is not going in the drum It sounds like the water valve coil has finally failled , It has been blowing fuses ,because the ccoil on the water valve was getting weak . change this water valve and you sohould be ok , but before doing so chaeck to see if you have the proper voltage going to this valve when It is calling to open ,if the power is there and the water is turned on the valve should be letting water in the machine . you can also take a ohm meater and check the valve for proper resistance . . If the machine is up in years I would change this valve . from the chack I mentioned earlier . hope this helps you

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
