I have a Maytag Washer (Topload). A sock was stuck in the pump

This answer was rated:

I have a Maytag Washer (Topload). A sock was stuck in the pump during discharge. I removed the sock and made sure everything was moving freely after removing the sock. Then it would not turn back on. I found a 1amp fuse had blown within the control panel area. I replaced the fuse turned it back on and it immediatley blew the fuse again. I dont see any burn out wires or shorts. What is the next step to determine why the fuse just blows?
