Washing machine motor wiring basics is a tutorial on how to wire an universal motor to a dc source.The universal motor stands for working on DC and AC.

You have an old washing machine don't throw it away yet dismantle it and search for 2 main components that are very useful the washing machine motor and the pump on this tutorial we will concentrate about the washing machine motor also know as universal motor because by definition an universal motor can run on dc and ac.

The motor that you will see in the video from the end of this tutorial is a universal motor 420w 2A 50/60Hz.

Step 1: The Washing Machine Motor

The universal motor is so named because it is a type of electric motor that can operate on AC or DC power. It is a commutated series-wound motor where the stator's field coils are connected in series with the rotor windings through a commutator. It is often referred to as an AC series motor. The universal motor is very similar to a DC series motor in construction but is modified slightly to allow the motor to operate properly on AC power. This type of electric motor can operate well on AC because the current in both the field coils and the armature (and the resultant magnetic fields) will alternate (reverse polarity) synchronously with the supply.

Step 2: How to Wire Universal Motor

Washing machine motor wiring basics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlaHSZFGzp0 a tutorial on how to wire universal motor or washing machine motor to ac/dc known as direct wire or hot wire washing machine motor is very easy just follow the wires and starting from bottom 1+3 stay connected and the rest 2 and 4 we gonna connect them to battery or ac source the connection is the same
because is a universal motor it can run on ac/dc.

Step 3: Video Washing Machine Motor Dc/ac

Universal motors have high starting torque, can run at high speed, and are
lightweight and compact. They are commonly used in portable power tools and equipment, as well as many household appliances. They're also relatively easy to control, electromechanically using tapped coils, or electronically. However, the commutator has brushes that wear, so they are much less often used for equipment that is in continuous use.

Go and check my channel you will find something useful for sure till then take care and be very careful with 220v

is very dangerous see you soon BYE BYE
