Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to assist you. Okay you tried 3 different outlets and were these outlets on a different breaker? Also did it pop the breaker as soon as it got plugged in or did you try to start the washer then pop the breaker?

I'm sorry the dam thing pops as soon as you try to plug it in
Okay, first thing you need to do is to take off the top of the washer and lets look inside and see if there is anything noticeable. Let me know when you get the top off. Take a close look at where the power cord comes directly in to the washer for any broken wire or burn marks.
