Hi Joe.Unfortunately if your drain pump shorted out and when you replaced it with a new one, it keeps draining, then the fault now is your MOTOR CONTROLLER.It became faulty when your pump shorted out.This happens sometimes with the Fisher and Paykel washers.Hope this helps and if you need further assistance then please reply and I can help you replace the CONTROLLER if you decide to change it.Just a note before you go and purchase a new controller ring your local FISHER and PAYKEL dealer and ask them if they can test your CONTROLLER for you,Just to be sure.I know my diagnosis of your fault is correct but I think we must cover all our bases.Looking forward to your reply.

My York Pacer 3500 Treadmill switched on then every time I used it the fuse blew. Its happened almost 5 times.


see the block diagram attached.
1) you must test the power cord for short wires.
2) test the power switch for short.
3) test coil for shot
4) test capacito for short.
5) the main motor board can be faulty
In short you must disconnecat every wires , and isolated the short for to avoid the fuse blown.
Otherwise you must call some service tech, from your supplier company.

God bless you

Looking at a wiring diagram would be a good place to start . Then leaning how to test automotive electrical circuits with a DMM - digital multimeter .Plus you never put a higher amperage fuse in place of a lesser amperage fuse . This is how cars burn down to ground . You can find free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine size . Under system click on body & accssories . Under subsystem click on wipers/ washers .Click the search button then the blue link .Then watch this videos

No lights, no power, whatsoever when plugged in


hello obviously you've checked the fuse in the plug if thats ok it could have blew the fuse inside the washer it will be on the power board glass type . beware if you put another 1 in and blows again then there's a dead short someware good luck

How to find a short in my wiring harness for a 1989 honda prelude? The fuse blew and now my tach,gas gauge,clock and blinkers don't work I put a higher amp fuse in and it lasted about 5 days and blew...


at least you know were to start,key on the fuse that blew.and everything controlled by it.i'm assuming that every time you replace the fuse now,it blows .think back before the short,was there any electricial problems,or devices that didnt work.,wires are melted together,or motors are shorted out.putting a bigger fuse in probably burnt a wire open(meaning got too hot and broke)whatever blew the fuse to start with,is most likley where the meltdown is ,start unplugging the things on that fuse,one at a time,remove tail lightbulbs,inspect thre sockets,look up under the dash at the wiring ,your clock,tach.and gas gauge ,are there,observation is almost 90%of trouble shooting anything .fixing it is easy pop the hood spend some time just looking at every thing follow wires make sure they arent melted together ,and are plugged in,just unplugging something and plugging it back in will show problems,things will fall apart.clips will break and hopefully you will see something obvious,shorts are never fun,do you have any electrical background?and know how to use a multimeter .if you do reply ,

Washer was in fill cycle and stopped


You've got a short circuit somewhere in that electrical circuit.

First, unplug the washing machine.
Replace the fuse. If it doesn't blow immediately, then there is likely a short in the washing machine, and from what you describe, it's in the motor.
If it blows, then there is something wrong in that circuit, and you can likely rule out the washing machine. Check all devices on that particular circuit, of which there can be a number of plugs.
