. You're almost comparing apples and oranges. As L points out, starters are designed for intermittent use and washers are designed for continuous duty. . Washing machine motors are usually in the ¼-¾ HP range. . Starter motor usually range from ½-2 HP, but will only put that out about 20 seconds at a time.

Starter-motors are designed for short heavy high-torque cranking. Washer motors are designed for high-speed spinning, and low speed tumbling.
You can rate motors by their wattage for power, but for torque (turning force) you'd probably be best searching for it, using "torque" as one of the keywords.
