    The repairman from the appliance store where the machine was purchased is doing the repairs and replacing the fuses. Could the first fuse just wear-out? Maybe the replacement fuses were too small and that's why they keep blowing?

Hi, a ONE Amp fuse, to my mind, is NOT enough? are you sure they are not TEN AMP? Even a 5 Amp? maybe even a two?, but a one? You do need to check.
Your machine would use a normal to big fuse, 1 Amp at 120 Volts only equals 120 Watts MAX, I think you will find that you machine will draw more than that, especially when the motor cuts in? and also it needs some "Headroom" or it would "Blow" every time a "Load" was put on the fuse.
If it is blowing fuses, then the ONLY things that that can be, are an overload, or a constantly overloaded fuse, that eventually overheats and "Blows". And a Short Circuit.
However I suspect that it just maybe the fuse... and it does protect for 10 to 11 "Loads" then because of thermal stress "Blows"?

However IF it is NOT that then you MUST get an Electrician to test the machine, as any machine that Blows fuses also has the ability to make the Case "Live" and deliver a potential lethal shock. Please be careful.

No power is there a fuse in the dryer. The power is ok. Could it be the plug? It is at my summer home it is a stackable purchased about 3 years ago. I don't have the model. It was purchased at Lowes


There is a fuse in the dryer, its called a high limit sensor. If the dryer gets too hot the high limit blows like a fuse and saves your house.
Make double sure you have proper power at the outlet before you tear into the machine.
Good Luck

I have a stackable Maytag. The water will not


I had a similar problem I just fixed. There is a fuse inside that keeps the water from filling if it's blown. Might try changing that first.

Water won't work but dryer does


Mine did the same thing and it ended up being an overloaded older breaker in the electric box. It would allow the dryer to work, but the washer was too much for it to operate. Had the breaker replaced with a new one and it works fine. Hope this helps!

Maytag Washer/Dryer stackable


well i am having about the same problem, but mine won't even fill, the dryer works but the washer won't fill or turn on at all. my husband had it all apart, too the control assembly to parts place and they said that hardly ever goes bad so it is still sitting unusable with no answer or money to spend on it in site.
