I got a new maytag washer the other day.
My question is on new washers is the agitator locked and has to be unlocked before use?
Here is what happened, the person that came to install it turned it on and it started to fill with water, he then put it in the rinse cycle and it ran for a few seconds and stopped. it tripped the GCFI circuit in the plug, reset the outlet and tried again. again same thing, we then tried another non GFCI Outlet, it worked for a little longer started to smell and smoke a bit and then blew a fuse.
What could be wrong with this washer?
