I replaced the lid switch on an old Maytag Dependable Care two belt washer that kept blowing the fuse a couple weeks ago.
That worked for a couple weeks, then it blew the fuse AGAIN.
The customer was desperate, so I tried bypassing the fuse. That worked for a test (spun, filled) till I closed the front, then it blows the circuit while empty.
Since it's still empty, I'm thinking it can't be the motor that's at fault. Either the new lid switch is defective or there's something else that can blow the fuse/breaker. Can a timer do that?
I'll go back and put a new microswitch into the brand new lid switch ... do you have any more ideas?
Also, sorry I didn't get back to the forum till now on the Frigidaire problem, I came down with the WORST flu. Even my skin hurt. I lost two belt buckle holes. Another flu and I'll be down to my ideal weight, but I won't be able to lift my toolbox. :)
