Plug trouble on washing machine

My sealed washing machine plug got wet and short circuited the house Got the rest working, dried out the plug for 5 days changed the fuse but every time I plug it in the whole house blows. Can I cut off the sealed plug and put a new one on or is that not the problem. Thanks. Need to wash clothes!!!!

Hi Annette,
Yes there is no problem to cut off the plug and replace with a standard plug.
Make sure you wire the Brown to the fuse the green and yellow to the top longest pin and the blue to the left short pin.
