We were having some very cold weather and some element of the washing machine was making the fuse blow; probably, I realized, because something had frozen. I thawed it out, replaced the fuse, and all good. But, it started to blow fuses again. Their was no way to tell if it was the motor or some other device. I found the wiring diagram taped to the inside of the cabinet. I noticed that the motor seemed to have thermal protection of its own, and that the only other device connected to the fuse was the Water Inlet Valve. I ordered a new one, put that, and a new fuse, in, and did my laundry.
