Trying to locate fuse in washing machine

Last time it was turned on, it blew the fuse in the electricity mains fusebox. Have repaired mains fuse but now washing machine shows no power light (or electrical response of any kind). Can anybody advise me where I can find the washing machine fuse location please?

    Thanks for your reply onetatm8,

    Sorry, I should have also mentioned that the machine has been leaking a little water previously. My guess is that this probably is the cause of the fusing problem as it happened as the machine was filling and before the actual wash began. My hope is that I can locate and rectify the leak, but I do need to also locate the fuse (if it exists) and replace it with a new one.

    So I am still looking for the *location* of the fuse Please.

    Thanks for the advice Rob, i should have mentioned that this is an Australian Hoover 1100f front loading washing machine. Fuses are not built into plugs at all here. Have checked the loom (removeable cover) with no joy - just wires. no sign of it to motor or pump or from the rear view of the controller. am reluctant to remove that as it means removing from dial which i don't know how to do. any advice on removing the dial safely? It is recessed & plastic.Cheers & Thanks!

    Gotcha Rob, thanks for that, must admit to having posted on another similar site also. the advice there hinged on the 'obvious' in plug fuse (buncha Poms i'm guessing ;-)
    just find it hard to reeally believe there's no fuse, even if you're right with your prediction :3(
    in the bush here, tas, things move slowly. will post the end result in time but think i'll ring around first - and hope. $$ being far rarer than Flying Pigs at the moment .....

    Sorry for the delay in responding Rob.

    You were right, (TIP / NO FUSE / SHOP) am now on the hunt for a replacement.

    btw. i googled Tasmanian Devils Stunt Team but with no joy. Any links out there?

    Thanks again

    NOT "Generic problem for all Washing Machines"

    Instead "Generic problem for most FRONT LOADING Washing Machines"

    Better late than never!

    Most *front loading* washing machines have a rubber boot (seal) which the door closes into to prevent water leaking when the machine is in action.

    In time these boots tend to rub / perish and will then leak water. If the leak is near the electronicly controlled door latch, this will short the power to the machine which will then cease to function.

    Replacing the blown door latch switch will bring the machine back to life, saving the need to purchase a new machine.

    Of course this job is only to be performed with the electric power disconnected.

    Fixed! Learn something new every day.

    Solved by OP. Thanks to all advisors.

    i doubt that it would have a fuse but if it did it would have to be between the motor & the cord! [Disconnect the power cord first!]

    so the only other place would be in the loom to the control panel!

    just follow all the wires but as i said i doubt it would have one

    I hope this helps!

    Cheers Rob

Where is the main relay located on a 2007 nissan sentra 2.0. It's not in the fuse box. It doesn't let power go to anything when it's blown I have a new one but can't find the old one to change it out.

if this is AKA the IGNITION relay see page 44 on that link i included

click on the last link for paul's pictorial on how to access that inner fuse box

the inner fuse box, labeled A, and that ignition relay is on the flip side of that whole box! i dunno if you have to unbolt the box and flip it over to see those 3 relays listed on that page = ignition, blower motor, and accessory

Washing machine wont work

If it's more than 6 years old, it's time for a new one. Or maybe you blew out your fuses. Try resetting the fuse box and switch off and on. Then after you switch back the power, go and try to turn on washing machine again.

House fuse blew last night

Plastic lead inside front of soap dispenser unlocks door.
Remove front panel, undo top panel & lift up, check wax motor (red / brown unit above / top of door), usually burnt out taking control board with it. If you are going to repair fit 5 amp fuse in line with wax motor or fit later model door lock mechanism.

Oven light blew and now no power to the oven.

If you are not knowledgable in electricity, call for service.
This is an electrical short at the light, I have seen this before.
The wiring for the light has grounded to the oven. This causes the main fuse to blow. You will need to fix the short first. Then reset the main fuse/replace.
In the case of the wall oven, you may have to remove the oven to fix it properly. Depending on the model and where the short is.

My dryer blew a fuse in our breaker box. I have reset the fuse in the electrical box but the dryer still wont turn on. I have tried to unplug and replug in the machine. The timer does not even tick when...

check both fuses if its an electrically heated dryer as you need 240 volts to make the motor and timer both work because the motor is on 1 leg and the timer is on the other leg of power and the element is across both legs for 120+120 volts = 240 volts needed to run the unit

I went to start my triumph and let it idle for about ten minutes. I began to leave and as soon as I pulls the throttle it died. I then opened the choke and restarted it but as soon as I gave it gas it...

Sounds like its been sitting a while and you have to clean the jets in the carb.

As for the electrical problem.
Sounds like it could be the ignition main fuse. There is a main hot wire off the battery that goes to your ignition switch that is always hot, when you turn your key it sends that power to everything else.
That hot wire has an inline fuse that is not in the fuse box. It probaly blew from trying to start the bike repeatedly and the wires got hot and the fuse blew. Clean your carbs, and check that fuse.
