Introduction: How to Wire a Washing Machine Motor As Generator
How to wire a washing machine motor as generator or washing machine motor generator wiring basics is a tutorial about universal motor wiring principles in DC and AC power supply.
A generator is a device that converts motive power into electrical power for use in an external circuit. Sources of mechanical energy include steam turbines, gas turbines, water turbines, internal combustion engines and even hand cranks. The first electromagnetic generator, the Faraday disk, was built in 1831 by British scientist Michael Faraday. Generators provide nearly all of the power for electric power grids.
The reverse conversion of electrical energy into mechanical energy is done by an electric motor, and motors and generators have many similarities. Many motors can be mechanically driven to generate electricity and frequently make acceptable manual generators.

Step 1: How to Make the Connections
A Generator can be any motor in reverse.Washing machine motor generator wiring is a how to wire washing machine motor into a generator.There are many types of ac/dc motors out there like induction motors, universal motors, synchronous motors and many more.

Step 2: Apply Power to the Field Windings
After you have spotted the field windings you have to connect a 12v power source (lead-acid battery) with some
kind of current more limit the simplest current more limit you can use a 12v incandescent lamp, like the one used in car light start from 5w-20w and that will limit the current going to the field windings.
And now you have to spin the shaft by hand, or pedal, or something else and from the brushes connections
you will receive power which is proportional to the input voltage and current but normally should exceed the source.
Step 3: Maybe a Free Energy Generator Soon
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.
