My Maytag Washer (model LAT5000AAW) as working fine--no problem other than the timer wasn't working right. Replaced timer and now it sparks fire and kicks breaker as soon as plugged in. Have tried in several outlets. The washer is on outlet by itself. Please help.
The old one does it to but it didn't start doing it until after we had hooked up the new timer. I can't take the replacement timer back as they don't do returns. However, when changing out the timers we changed the wires one at a time. That's why I don't understand. How can we tell if a wire is hooked up wrong which I don't think would be the case since we changed them out one by one from old timer. Also, I don't see anything pinched. Frustrating. Could you give me the right wiring diagram for this washer and timer part #207379. Could something be wrong internally? Does anyone know what the inside of this timer is suppose to look like?
