Wonder why a washer motor has that much of an rpm capability? That's router speeds, imagine a washer tub going that fast. Blow up the whole house.

it would have 2 stage belt reduction to get it down
but AC motors not good to use. 1st you need an inverter to convert DC to AC
see this -

Hello, did it work? I'm planning on using a washing machine motor too and I'm about to go buy the converter from 12v DC to 220v AC (I'm in europe so my washing machine needs 220-240v )

EDIT: Would a dimmable light switch work as throttle? The motor is 365 watts, and it's 1.6 ampers.
