Water is flowing back against the pump and turning it. There should be a check valve to prevent this.

    I'm not sure I understand what it is you're doing or trying to accomplish. Can you explain in more detail what the problem is and what you are doing to the motor. What do you mean when you say 'trying to find magnetic center'. I have 30 years of experience with large motors and generators and I can help you if you can be more specific.

My gould well water pump would not stop so is bought a new pressure switch which i installed and same thing. can you help me please

Sounds like the foot valve may be loosing it's prime. I would let it pump for a few minutes and then shut it off. Then after a few minutes disconnect the line going into the well. If the line has water in it and the water level is going down, you have either a bad foot valve or a leak in the lines going down into the well. It could be as simple as a loose connection. Hope this helps. I use to sale well pumps and have seen this many times. If you let the problem continue and the pump continues running it will throw the overload or will burn the pump motor up.

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. The pump will run continuously when its not building vacuum. The vacuum seals at the hubs are a common failure on those i would start there by disconnecting the lines right at the hub and applying vacuum directly to the sealed hub unit. I believe it should hold 15-20 in hg

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.

200 Honda Passport ABS pump wont stop running...

There should be a 50amp fuse marked number 18 in the box near the battery that should power the pump.
You may be able to pull that fuse and kill the pump until you can get it fixed. You may also be able to unplug the pump at the wiring connector.

My creepy sucks for a while and then stops

There are several things that you need to check if these pool cleaners stop working or lose suction. Check for debris or obstructions in the flapper. If you have something making your flapper lose its seal or prevent flapper movement, your water flow can be restricted. Make sure that you filter and pump are not becoming clogged with debris. Make sure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed except for the line you are using to run the pool cleaner.
