This is a zombie thread maybe but google brought me here . What is really interesting is that many "inverter direct drive" washing machines use 3 phase induction motors that run around 380Hz . They are avail for around $50 all over the place, and some cheaper VFD drives might run them just fine. We use 600Hz spindle motors at work, we can only run them 595-597 for the reasons stated earlier.
