Washer/dryer on spin fast but keeps stopping and starting how do I open the door?

If you sure that its not full of water, you should set the program to the stop position, and wait a few mins for the lock to release.

I have a Toro 42 zero turn mower and the blades stop turning while mowing. The PTO switch knob melted. I replaced the PTO switch and the blades turned for 5 min. and then the PTO switch melted again.

Elertric blade drive clutches are a real pain when they go wrong
It sounds like a electrical short is causing the wires inside the switch to heat up beyond the safe melting point thereafter five mins the circuit gets between the fault gets broken as the switch fails the blades stop and the switch melts a bad eaRth corroded may cause this check the deck safety switches are not exposed e.g. they been damaged and the decks metal is shorting them out
a wire has been stripped of protective covering and is touching some metal shorting out something that vital to the blade controls operation the switch is getting a overload and subsequently melting your might need an lawnmower engineer to diagnose to the fault fully and repair

After replacing i cranked the truck and the steering wheel took off very fast turning by its self from left to right back andforth until i turned the truck off . what is wrong.

Did you bleed the air out of the system? Try that first. Just turn the wheel from left stop to right stop a few times with the engine running.. Then check fluid level and add as necessary. Repeat turning the wheel a few more times until the air is out of the system

Why Does the blade stop upon contact with material

Few factors to check: Blade Tension- always put appropriate tension on the blade. Second, Blade Problem- you're problem using the wrong tpi or the blade itself is bad. Third, you are running the blade too fast or you're overfeeding the stock. Make sure that you let the blade do the cut. I suggest you read blogs about blade break in procedure. I am using Haltbar band saw blade from I never had a problem with their blades.

You should be able to push it forwards as well as backwards. I had a similar problem (engine stalling) with mine. I found out if I half choke it, it will stay running. Transmission may still have a problem.

I think i know what is wrong ,its kind of strange that everything went bad just then,but if you were at full trottle when you hit that rock and it stalled the motoryou might have more damage then you think to find out take the spark plugs out and turn engine over if it turn quite fast with no problem then there shouldn't be anything wrong with the starter/battery you may have sheared the that keed the timing set to top dead center then you need to take it to the repair shop

The blade spinng fast and not pulling trigger

The idle speed screw (not the idle jet screw) is set too high. Turn it CCW while running until the chain stops turning, yet the engine keeps running. Hope this helps!
