What fuse is used for this washer?
Answer Hello Terrill,
The 4 amp fuse in the lid switch is not available alone anymore but is available as part of the lid switch assembly 22001682.
I was told by a service tech my washer timer was bad and the cause of this fuse to continually blow. I have replaced the washer timer and it still blows this fuse. The dryer runs fine. Originally the washer would not fill, only spin. This was before the service tech replaced the fuse. It filled , agitated, and spun out for one small load while he was here. Fourty minutes later it would do nothing.
Answer Hello Karen. Unfortunately, a fuse blowing like this indicates a shorted circuit or component on the unit. I will send you some information which may be useful. You can refer to links; http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=44572&diagram_id=28453394#d28453394 and
If I were the technician I would start with the obvious.....The connectors that connect the washer and dryer and look specifically for connections which have been saturated. The components besides the harness in question would include the lid switch 12001514 pressure switch 12002304 and temperature selector switch 22001923. Please keep in mind that proper troubleshooting is much cheaper than shotgunning the unit. You could replace every component on the unit and never solve the problem so I definitely do not recommend part replacement until the part has been tested and deemed bad. I certainly hope this will help you! You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.
