Question about Washing Machines
Yes your machine is set up for 60 Hz. Which is what we run on through out the USA. Also the other consideration is the voltage. Normally, the 50 Hz machine is setup for 220 volts. Look at the name plate on the machine and see what the 'Electrical requirements' are that are listed. You may not be able to use that machine there. Is the voltage at the outlet 120 volts?
The 50 Hz will not necessarily hurt the machine. The main control unit may not allow 50 Hz to run the machine. It will run a bit 'slower' (the motor) due to 50 Hz power. That's all it would do though. The frequency change will change the speed of the motor running the drum.
