    First include motor type, don't recall offhand type used in washing machines. Dryers are capacitor start induction run.

    Motor label SOLO. It came from a zanuzi washer dryer
    Type 20584.024 AC
    220/240V 50Hz. 300/1400 RPM

    Wires no 1 Black. Windings
    No 2 blank
    No 3 yellow Speed sensor
    No 4 yellow. Speed sensor
    No 5 brown Windings. Then looped through plug to no 6
    No 6 white. Windings then looped through plug to no 5
    No 7. White. Windings
    No 8 blue. Brushes
    No 9.red. Brushes
    No 10. Grey Windings

    Hope this helps

    I'll research lathe electrical requirements as well see if its viable motor after identified.

    Thanks for your interest
    The lathe Is a small model makers lathe " Myford "
    Probably 60 / 70 years old which I reconditioned about 1973
    It was flat leather belt drive which I converted to V belt
    Driven by washing machine motor only 2 Wires came out of this motor
    Earth was just Grounded to the motor and bench frame

    There are/were three basic types of motors used in W.M.'s Universal (brushed). Standard 1ph induction motor, and most recently the Fisher & paykel AC brushless outrunner.
    It sounds as though you have one of the Universal motors, these were speed controlled by a Motorola TDA1085 IC.

    i would use an ohm meter, measure the resistances of the windings, bet you have a tappeded winding possibly the black,grey,brown, and seperate white windings, if so connect the windings in series with the brushes, to make a universal motor, the tapped winding is for increased speed.

    The fact that it shows a 14,000rpm motor points to Universal type.

    Could you possibly do a quick sketch of how to wire it up
    I am not to sure of what you mean by ( in series with windings )
    Through the brush wires and then the windings ?
