Unfortunately there is no fuse for this washer. If the unit isn't spinning, either your lid switch has failed or the motor inverter board logic is corrupted and needs to be replaced. You'd need to take the washer apart and test the lid switch to make sure it has continuity when the lid is closed. If not then replace it, otherwise replace the motor control board.

how do i see if the lid switch is working
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

You would disconnect the wires going to the lid switch to start. Then you use a multimeter to test resistance between the 1 wires coming from the lid switch itself. When the lid is open you should be open line, when the lid is closed, it should be between 0.1 and 1.0 ohms of resistance if the lid switch is working properly.
