Is it possible to take a Whirlpool 3363736 and make a grinder?

Is it possible to take a Whirlpool 3363736 washing machine motor and use it as a bench grinder to run a wire wheel?

I see bench grinders for about ten or twenty dollars at the flea markets all the time. They also have the $$ grinding wheels on them.

Is the 4A912B Dayton 10" 1 HP bench grinder 3 phase or 1 phase?


If the plug on the cord has 2 flat prongs and one round one then its 110 VAC single phase. If the motor has 4 wires then I'd suspect 3 phase. The data plate on the motor will tell you for sure.

I have a ludell (machine tool) bench grinder. The problem is that the grinder disc will not turn. The motor hums but won't turn. I took the disc off and turned the shaft by hand with the powder on and it...


Ah, the start winding is not operating. When you turn the motor by hand. When the motor speeds up, do you hear a click sound? This is the start winding switch working. There might be a capacitor that is wired in with this switch that is used to start the grinder. If this capacitor is fried, the motor will not start. If the switch is shot, also the motor will not start. There could also be a wire or connector in this part of the motor that is not connected, or fried and not making contact. These are a few things to look for.

No control of speed on bench grinder,need schematic


Unless the motor is a brush type universal unit, there is commonly no way to change the speed of an induction motor. There are AC motor speed control units available, but cost more than the grinder as they change the frequency as well as the voltage. There are speed controllable grinders available that use brushes so that simple electronics can control speed. Hope this helps!

Have 25 year old Wilton belt grinder. Belts seem to wobble when running then will just not track. Not sure what part needs replacement.


The motor and grinder pulleys need to be perfectly parallel or the belt will track to one side or the other. The belt must be uniform with no stretch or wear points which will cause erratic travel. Hope this helps!

Hi there, with out seeing it I`d say your brushes are gone and ceasing. I hope this solves your problem.

The motor just sits there and buzzes, when there isn't any electicity bearings turn freely


There is a short internally in the motor. IMO not worth repairing, new bench grinders are pretty inexpensive.

It hums but won't turn. are there brushes? what is the black canister hooked to wiring going to motor? aloha, chip


Hi Chip , have you tried !!carefully!! turning the grinding wheels whilst the grinder is powered up and humming and does this start the machine , if it does your motor start capacitor ( a cylinder/tube with 2 wires or connectors on it ) will be deffective or the leads might have became detached from it , a replacement capacitor is quite cheap but you must replace it with the exact one ( a motor start/run capacitor of the correct Mfd or uF rating typically 30 uF/Mfd and at the correct voltage 110/220V )
if this dosent fix your problem most likely your motor start windings in the motor field coils are burnt out and the grinder is uneconomical to repair .
hope this helps .

Bench grinder buzzes


The capacitor has failed. Take it out and go to a motor shop for a new one.

green is ground, white is neutral, red/black is usually hot on a 1 phase 110-120v motor. (normal colors are black, white, green).
if three phase, (208-220v), green is ground, white, is neutral, black/red/blue are hot. (only uses 2 of these, so there should only be a total of 4 wires). once you have the wiring connected, turn on the motor, and check the rotation direction it turns. if it turns backwards, reverse the red/black wires, the red/white wires, or the black/white wires.

be sure you look at the data plate on the motor to determine one or three phase motor.
their should be a small diagram of which wire inside go to which other wires inside on a three phase motor and for which voltage, and are usually numbered on the individual wire.
good luck.
