Hi guys I have a motor of a washing machine without brushes and would like to use it as generator.
First I have to run motor; the thing is that it have blue, white, red, pink, and black wires coming out.
Blue wire is bridged on three contacts from an eight outlet pins.
Anyone knows on these motors maybe this is two speed not sure
Thanks.

dont recall seeing one without a yellow wire before.

usually, blue and yellow go to the start winding and black and white or red and white go to the run winding, although i have seen these colors reversed. ohm it out to make sure. the start winding should show about 7 ohms with the run winding showing 2 ohm.

single speed motors usually have 5 wires as you describe, with 2 speed having another and 3 speed having yet another. i suppose it is possible that the returns are all wired together and you have a 3 speed motor, could explain the pink wire, which i cant recall ever seeing before.

Thanks deth502 for response. Does this need a start cap? how much uf do you think?
Ok I check ohms on wires. Yes that pink wire is curious of it too.
These results: black to red =63ohms; black to white=36ohms; blue to red= 53ohms; white to red=77ohms
black to pink=63ohms; black to blue= 12ohms; red to pink= 71ohms; blue to pink=54ohms.
