Washing machine motors? Answered

I have also seen a lot of washing machine motors at the scrap yard. They usually have a large wiring harness. Has anyone used a washing machine motor for a tool or project?

jep! two wires are usually sensors for the speed, 2 go to the brushes and the rest are stator windings and tappings in between the winding (If we're talking universal motor) there's also other kinds out there
