usually that means something is shorted to ground....could be the switch or the motor
Going a step further, when does the new fuse blow? When you activate the wipers, or the instant you turn the key to the acc/on position? If it is the former, then the post above mine is right on track. If the fuse blows when you turn the key (ie--before you actually turn on the wipers), then there may be something else in that circuit which is shorting to ground. In that case, you may need to consult a wiring diagram to see what else uses that same circuit. (I have no idea if anything else does use that circuit; this is just general troubleshooting advice.)
