The often found cause of this problem is the door interlock. There is a
safety feature to stop any operation while the door is open. If this
becomes faulty, the washer may still not work even when the door is
closed. Check that when closing the door, the catch is activating the
switch. To test the switch, first make sure the WASHER IS NOT PLUGGED
IN, then use an electrician's meter to test the resistance across the
switch. You should put the two electrodes on the contacts at the back
of the switch. When the door is closed, the resistance reading should
read a very low value.
Another possible cause for this is a fault on the timer. You should
inspect the connecting wires for any sign of burnt plastic or charring
on the spade connectors. You will need to replace the timer if this is

The reason the fuse keeps blowing is because one of the two switches their where the fuse is is bad and drawing to much amperage so the fuse blows. THe lid switch/fuse asm comes together and it should be replaced.

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
If all your power did shut down of the machine it might well be a fuse problem.
If you have a mult meter you can check the resistance of the fuses. they must be near 0 . infinit resistance means blown.
otherway to test it lol for the DIY under us take a 9 volts batterie and conect one pole to the fuse . now connect tongue to fus and other pole. Little shock? no blown fuse.
nothing than the fuse is blown. ( by the way not the most pleasurable feeling)
Let me know if they were blown or not.
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
