Motor for Other Use

Motors are recycled from washing machines and have exposed live terminals.

 Your installation will need to have guards to cover them or the motor is enclosed to prevent accidental touching of them

Also to prevent rain/dust entering the motor

1/5 HP single phase

Single  speed (1440rpm) and can be wired for forward/reverse

Wired with cord, and if required with optional switch (Motors will rotate clockwise when looking at the pulley, unless you tell me anticlockwise, I will tell you which wire to swap to reverse direction)

Optional extras.

Add $6.00 for forward/reverse switch with centre off (need to cover back of switch), buy one switch, request invoice before paying, click here to buy/details Switches for Motors

Motor description

Capacitor Run Motor from late Australian (Hoover & Simpson ) and Asian Washing Machines

A Pulley and fan. Die cast with “M” section belt. Some are pressed steel. Very limited number with “A” section belt.

B Motor capacitor. This will have live terminals which need to be covered.

C Optional forward/reverse switch. This will have live terminals which need to be covered.

D Motor mounts with small amount of adjustment by slotted hole.

These motors are for light duty only. They do not have the power or starting torque of a 1/3 HP motor in my other listing. Contact me and ask if the application you require is suitable for these motors. They are not strong enough for a concrete mixer. A wood saw requires a ½ HP motor for best results. When used in a washing machine they draw about 2A when starting the spin cycle and drop to about 1A when it reaches it operating speed.

The motors have no “Data Plate” with the rating but an estimate is:

P=VI = 240x 1 = 240W x 60% efficiency = 144W

746W = 1HP, there the motor is about 1/5 HP

The motors shown in the picture has the optional switch the switch is a centre off, push the switch one way and the motor will spin one direction, move the switch in the opposite direction and the motor will spin in the other direction. The motor has to come to a stop before starting in the opposite direction. With no load this will take a little time. In a washing machine it has a timer or electronic controller that changes the direction from forward to reverse at regular intervals for agitation.

Without the switch the motor will start and spin in one direction. I will tell you what wires to swap if you need the motor to spin in the opposite direction.

Buy a used belt and get it posted for free. (included in this parcel with the motor)
