I checked both continuity and then for voltage in the holder. Like I say it showed that there was continuity but no voltage on one site when it was closed or open. When I took the fuse out the continuity was not there. I couldn't read what size fuse went in it and I had an 8 amp fuse so I put it in it. I couldn't find what size it was. Do you know what size it is supposed to be? I do think that the out of balance switch is not functioning correctly. When I put the washer in it walked across the floor and never cut off. I thought there was someone out side with a huge bass amp thumping. NO JOKE. The washer was out of level.
