I suspect that the fuse keeps blowing on startup because of a capacitor fault. I have taken the lid of the washing machine but can not see where the mother board is to be found. Does anyone know where it is in this machine?


WM stopped emptying the drum and did not go into the correct end spin cycle. I found the cause was a small piece of cloth blocking the pump at the drainage point at the base of the machine.  I restarted the spin cycle and all was well, until the next morning when I tried to do a new wash. This time the power plug's fuse blows immediately. I think it wouldn't hurt to inspect the capacitors to see if any have blown. This is an old machine but in fairly good condition. My intention is to check if something has burned out and if not replace the machine.

The main PCBs on washing machines are usually at the base of the washing machine. It is unusual for one to cause fusing though. There are lots of other possibilities too. Washing Machine Tripping or Fusing Electrics
