I have a fisher pakel washing machine GW711 ,power shut down just before the end of the spin cycle and won't turn back on

Hi Jeffrey.
Remember that the power starts at the consumer unit (fuse box); make sure that a fuse hasn't tripped.
Next, check the plug socket; the best way to confirm that there isn't a fault with the plug socket is to plug another electrical appliance such as the kettle to see if it boils as it should.
If all is ok with the consumer unit and the socket next you now need to confirm the wiring to the plug looks good and there are no kinks or breaks in the wire, and check that the fuse in the plug is ok.
Check the washing machine door Again, often overlooked but it's a simple mistake to make. Check your washing machine door is closed and closed properly. All washing machines have what's known as a door interlock. It is designed to stop the door from being opened when the machine is switched on, and unless the door of your washing machine is fully closed and latched, it won't start.
you can go to this link and read up some more on this matter.

GLTF1240ASO Front Door Won't Lock/Close

Most probably your door lock is damaged. You are not supposed to force it open, you have to wait for at least 2 minutes (or till the lock sign is off) after the wash is over to open the door, never force it.
You can just google your model number and search for parts to obtain it. It is quite possible you can change it yourself. See that the line is disconnected from the mains.

W6444 washing machine door won't close

Try some WD40 spray on the door and lock. Just a bit. Try closing and opening the door. The machine should be in the <off> position.

I have A samsung washer p801 and the washer wont close it keeps telling me Ed and i tried turning off the machine and closing the door and turning off the machine when i open it but the door just wont lock...

ED is a door not closed error code. The lock may be on and the machine will need to be reset. To do this either leave the machine unplugged for 24 hours or see if there is a reset option on the machine. If you need an owners manual, I can probably locate one for you .

Maytag maxima door locked

Similar problem here - pump was set for a 58 minute normal cycle, I look in and see it is now showing 67. Hmm. Attempt to shut it off because it is just sitting there pumping and pumping. Power shuts off but pump keeps running and add garment light flashing red. Cannot open door (to add garment or not) Unplug the unit and the door will not open. Anybody got a clue what's up? I have a wash in, service is closed due to a storm today. Just bugs me that it is 6 months old and seems to act up a fair bit electronically.

The washing machine drum keeps on filling up with cold water, we have to keep on emptying it cause it overflows. door won't close either.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning cold water control valve, particularly if it happens with POWER OFF.

Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Saying to close door and we already have

When you shut the door , do it very firmly until you can hear the latch click, if it still will not start, then you could have a faulty door lock or a communication problem between boards.
Plz rate my solution.Thanks.
