Fisher and Paykel DW920 dishwasher pump wont stop

This means the flood circuit is triggered. There is a leak in the dishwasher causing water to collect in the motor chamber. The leak is usually through the door seals or broken hose. Disconnect mains electric and water connections and pull dishwasher out from under kitchen bench. Tilt it from side to side to get the water out from under the base. Wait a little for water to dry up. Reconnect mains power and turn on to see if pump stops running. As mentioned source of leak needs to be fixed.

My 1995 Chevy Monte Carlo is sometimes running hot. My overflow tank remains full. But the radiator is losing water somewhere but I see no water on the ground or anywhere else. When I take the radiator...

indicates an air lock in the cooling system
could be from a failing head gasket ( do a compression test)
have a coolant pressure test done to find the leak
possible a water pump seal leaking when running
check sump oil for greying color ( failure of the housing behind the pump impeller

I have been putting alot of coolant in my radiator I dont think its a hose because it seems to be coming from the middle to bottom part of the car could this be a water pump problem?

The water pump is in the center of the engine. It usually has a small hole in the casting on the snout. If the seal went bad water usually runs out of the small hole and down the center of the front of engine. With the engine OFF, put your hand under the pump, and feel the snout to see if water winds up on your hand. If possible use a flashlight and check for a leak all around the pump, and bolts that hold it in. In a rare case the pump gasket could be leaking. If the pump appears to be dry, check the small hose that goes from the center of the pump to the block.

Either your valves are stuck or broken or the seals inside the pump are worn

Manitowoc SD 0852A ice maker compressor will not kick-in

Here's my thoughts, I hope it helps. I'm going on foggy memory here, so I may not be entirely correct.
I worked on something like this a few years ago. The icemold (plate) is vertical, there is a circulating pump that runs water over the mold, with the water freezing as it passes. The sealed system is a heat-pump scheme, it freezes the mold to form the cubes, and reverses to heat for release. And when it works, it makes ice fast. It runs constantly until the ice hopper is detected to be full. (there should be a bail to detect the ice level) The system will not run in the event that it thinks the hopper is full (bail up) but the pump motor runs continuous to avoid it freezing. There is probably either a false detection of "full" or there may be a leak in the sealed system and the system will therefore not run.
