Fire Hazard From Loose Power Plug - Poorly Seated Fuse

This fuse has one end improperly seated into the fuse holder. The high electrical current drawn by the washing machine ( especially when heating up water for washing ) caused the loose end to heat up and damaging the surrounding plastic in the plug. The weakest point in this plug is the fuse and fuse holder. The electrical wires are actually crimped onto the terminals so is actually very strong and is not likely to come loose
