Hi!3-phase motor wires brn/blue/blk no open cct.P.c.b there are no components burnt out or blown.I removed interlock switch and will buy new one and try again.Belt ok.Pump solenoid valve ok .


Check for a motor start capacitor that is defective. This can happen without external symptoms. Highly unlikely Hotpoint washer has 3-phase motor. Most household loads are single-phase. In North American residences, three-phase power might feed a multiple-unit apartment block, but the household loads are connected only as single phase. In lower-density areas, only a single phase might be used for distribution. Some large European appliances may be powered by three-phase power, such as electric stoves and clothes dryers. Three wires could be for different speed ranges or one could be frame ground.

Are you sure? Single phase pool motors are not reversible (unless something weird happened that I can't explain). Three phase motors are reversible, but very rare in residential wiring.

Looking directly at the end of the motor shaft (where the impeller goes) it should spin counter- clockwise. Both of the power wires can be attached to either terminal; there is no "polarity".

How to change a 3 phase to single phase motor


You cannot change a 3 phase motor into a single phase motor because the windings are different in these motors. You need to buy a single phase motor to replace the 3 phase motor.

2 speed switch wiring dieagram


The motor will have wiring diagram and voltage on nameplate.
You can re-post question with information that shows on nameplate for more exact information, or keep reading below:
If motor is rated for 240Volts, then it will not work with 120V.
If motor is rated for both 120V and 240V, then either Low voltage or high voltage will work, and one wire will be common, and 1 wire will for 120 and other wire for 240.
If motor is rated 120Volt two speed, then one wire will be neutral, and 1 wire low speed, and other wire high speed. You can connect your wire to either low of high, and cap other wire.
If motor is 240volt two speed, then one wire will be common, and 1 wire low speed, and other wire high speed.
If motor is rated 3-phase, then all three wires are connected to the voltage shown on nameplate.
If motor is rated 3-phase two speed, you may need electrician to wire the motor correctly.

I have a gmf electric motor and it has 4 wires .. blue brown black and yellow/green .. is this a 3 phase motor and if not how would it be wired into a single phase circut?


No it is a single phase motor the different wire colors are the different speeds brown would be common and then black is high, yellow medium and blue low and green is ground.

Changed out blower motor on elect furnace.the old motor had three wires one fed the compaster.new motor is revirsable has purple wire,red,blue,black.hooked up purple 1st phase,red for high 2nd phase. is...


hmmm . you better check on that before firing it up ... normally the colored wires are for different speeds .. only one speed can be connected at a time .. usually the high speed winding is used for air conditioning and a lower speed winding is selected by a relay for heating .. ... the way the capacitor is hooked up determines which way the motor will turn .. your old motor with just 3 wires was probably a single speed motor .. normally the black wire will be connected permanantly to one phase .. the other phase then goes to the selected speed winding (color of wire) .. one goes to the starting capacitor . the others even if not connected will be hot electrically so need wire nuts to prevent shorts ..

I am Replacing a pump motor and I'm not sure of the connections


high speed phase neutral should go to High speed {phase} neutral low speed {phase} should go to neutral .....Low speed and high speed {phase} need not be connected
