I have a Haier HW-C1270TVE-U washing machine. It recently smelled

Resolved Question:

I have a Haier HW-C1270TVE-U washing machine. It recently smelled of burning rubber, then there was a bang and the main fuse in my house blew. Since then the machine does not work although the display panel works and shows error 1 which is a door switch fault (manual says). but the door and switch apprear OK.

Thank you for using JustAnswer!
If you have any questions after reading my answer,be sure to let me know.

You do have a short in the system that caused this problem. The door switch can not be tested by eye. Unfortunately, this time you will need a hands on tech on location with test equipment to test your door switch and other electronic components to see which component has failed and shorted out making your breaker or fuse trip.
This does not sound like a home handy person fix any more.
