Question Washer blows fuse when plugged in
Model Number: A7500   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years

My Maytag A7500 washing machine blows out it's fuse when it is plugged in. What is the most probable cause (or causes) of this and what steps should I take to determine which parts are needed to correct this problem? Before it started blowing fuses it would occasionally quit between cycles until I pushed in the timer knob, turned it to another setting, and pulled out the knob again, then it even stopped responding to that tactic.

Here is your parts breakdown
Model A7500

Here is a service manual

Could be many things
Open up the control console and take look.
Sounds like you have a dead short somewhere.
Unplug it and measure across the line cord for resistance, if you get 0 ohms then you have a dead short for sure. Note you will need a decent meter to do this and set it at a low scale.
Try different timer settings, it may help localize the problem.
