If the motor is 3 phase (which it may be if it is 2 HP) , it will run backwards if 2 of the wires are traded position. You may have changed the wires in the plug if you replaced a plug.

Just replaced speed control unit and saw still spins at very slow rpm, guessing 20-30. any other possibilties. any way to check if new control unit is no good?

With the saw unplugged, turn the saw blade.
If it turns easily with no hangups I would guess its the field.
When mine went bad the blade went backwards very slowly.
I replaced only the field and not the armature and it's worked fine for over 2 yrs.

Right now I have it apart to change an armature bearing which was completely frozen up.

Saw is rotating backwards can you help. its a power devil table saw

This happens with Bosch saws once in a while. The field coil in the motor short circuits. This causes the saw to run very slowly or sometimes run backwards. I sounds like yours has this problem. Unfortunatly the only way to repair the motor is to replace the field coil. This is a fairly involved repair and you might benifit from taking to a power tool service center.

My bosch table saw runs slowly backwards what part do i replace

Replace the field coil. I'm going to bet its a Model 4000. I have done about 100 of these saws in the last couple of years and my customers always complain of the same problem, "the saw was running backwards"

Change the armature back bearing while you have it apart, they always seize eventually.

Washer won't agitate

I saw this happen once and you know what it was? A loose connection!. I pushed in the timer's molex block and it worked! It musta vibrated out the socket somehow. You must flip up the console to access the controls.
