Dryer wont heat up.

i don't know. first make sure the control selector knob is turning the timer shaft. gently wiggle and pull the knob off.
look where the flat side of shaft is. put knob back on and turn in half way around. remove the knob again to see if flat side of shaft has also moved to opposite side. i took a dryer apart yesterday and all checked out OK. lastly i checked control knob and the darn thing was slipping. cost me fifty cents for a replacement knob at ReStore ;-))
--- reset electrical source at electrical panel. if you have
fuses in a smaller dedicated dryer box, i had one with good 30 amp fuses. i called appliance dealer and they said 'change the small 6x8 inch box. i did. it worked.
before a box change, just use electrical meter to ensure
both 110 volt wires are alive. if they are, it is OK. it might be a broken heating element or a 'high temperature fuse' that needs to be replaced.

Why doesn't it fill and perform any wash cycles?

If you are saying that a house fuse blew out then the question is why did that happen? If the washer shorted out and blew the house fuse then you have to work on the washer to see why. It might have been the transformer in the washer power supply. If the fuse blew during a storm then it might be lightning damage and that would mean replacing the power unit and the computer in the machine.

Why is my GE Advantium SCA2001 blowing the main fuse?

Yeah pal, you've not gone deep enough yet. You'll find a power wire bare inside the unit, pull it apart and tape that wire up to stop it from grounding out and blowing the fuse.

Wont turn on

Please understand, that if a fuse must bow up, there must be a reason. Without recitfying that reason, if we put an other fuse, you've already did it, will make things worse. There are mainly two reasons for failure of fuse. A short circuit, and an over load. It will be best for your to contact any service technician in this case. Do not put an other fuse and make an experiment.

My bush washing keeps making my fuse box trip

when I put my machine on to do a washing it blows my fuse box 8 mins into every washing cycle I select, It spins ,drains and rinses ok .So what can it be???????

I have a Bosch Exxcel 1400 S Express which blew

There is no internal fuse in the washer to replace.
If you have replaced the fuse, make sure that is is a good one.
If you are satisfied that you have power to the washer, then I'm afraid it sounds quite serious.

Dead Short In My 94 Chevy Silverado

it may not be a dead short turn everything connected to that fuse off and try it again hope this might help the sparking can just mean its drawing a large current

Not following program water is cold

chances are the element blew in the unit ( trippied the fuse) and now is open circuit so not heating and therefore not advancing the wash on.

engineer rquired i'd say. most times will be the heating element shorting. but dangerous to keep changing the fuse. the fuse is a symptom not the problem.
