The lid switch fuse will open based on a short circuit or over amping,obviously. Is it possible that your machine water temperature setting was switched to HOT with a capped valve that would overheat with no water passing?  Does the HOT water wire get power when calling for water while set for COLD? Remove the wires from the HOT side of the valve and run the machine. Does it still blow the fuse?
