There is no fuse or circuit breaker inside this model washer. The most common cause of the problem you are experiencing is a lid switch malfunction. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, a wash tub that will not drain, and stopping right after the wash cycle and not advancing to rinse or spin cycles.

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

NOTE: You do not have to drain or bail the water from the washer tub to perform this repair. Once a defective lid switch is replaced, the washer should drain normally.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average price is about $20 - $30 if you perform the repair yourself. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare. If the model number you posted this question under is correct, the part number for a replacement switch is 3949238.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. The lid switch is a very simple repair that you can easily perform without the assistance of a repairman.

If you would like to purchase a Repair Manual to assist you with all your repairs, repairclinic.com has one that you can order on line for about $20. The part number is 1170635. Searspartsdirect.com also has a repair manual for about the same price. Part number 4314044L. I hope this information is helpful.

Dryer stopped working. Not spinning or anything


You will be needing someone with an electric meter, (an ohm meter or a multi-meter) to begin testing to find out if it is the dryer or the power source.
The one thing you could do is check the fuse panel or the circuit breaker box to see if a circuit breaker popped or a fuse blew.
The circuit breaker can be reset by flipping the handle a few times, a fuse would need replacement.
Other than that, an electric meter will tell if the plug socket is live or dead, and then the machine needs be taken apart to see which part has failed. Usually a fuse or a thermo-switch has popped inside the machine.
God bless your efforts.

No power. Will not turn on


It may have tripped the internal breaker, and or the house circuit breaker. Go tot the house fuse box and check that first.

Check the fuse / circuit breaker inside washing machine. There may be a extra control circuit fuse normally on the control PCB.

This is happening because you have a very bad fault, a Phase to Earth short, problem. Leave machine UNPLUGGED, Breaker/Fuses OUT. do NOT use it, nor Touch it, It is possible to get severe electric shock. PLEASE get a registered serviceman to inspect this unit.

My smeg dwf 64 sse blew the main fuse yesterday. The machine was up to its rise stage on program 8 then the breaker went. Every time I switch the main back on it blew. I have managed to stop it...


Your element was initially short circuit, which caused circuit breaker trip. It is now open circuit and timer will not advance because water has not reched required temperature, recommend thermostat replacement also.

Washer won't turn on


Begin by checking to be sure the outlet where you have the washer plugged in has power. you may have blown a fuse or popped a circuit breaker. If no power, either replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker by turning it all the way off and then all the way on.

No power -- where is fuse?


Fuse is inside the machine. Looks like a black wire thats fat in the middle.

Its either that or the main board blew. I pray it is the fuse because saeco doesn't sell the royal boards anymore from what i understand.
