The wiper fuse is hot only when ignition is in start position and you mentioned it is on permanently.
This cannot occur unless it is on permanently ONLY when ignition switch is turned on.
Are you able to control the speed of the wiper?
At what wiper speed is it working?
Either you have a short in one of the wires or the wiper switch is bad.
