I am indeed very sensitive to the safety concerns. I have access to a fully equiped shop with every imaginable cabinet/wood tool plus metal working with welding etc. So we will build a enclosure system that not only vents the motor for over heating but makes it very near to impossible for the motor to throw sparks at the chems...and near impossible for chems to reach the motor. Believe me, I don't want to be harmed nor my property to be harmed. The ball will will run about 90 feet from any property with a protective wall to prevent lead balls from hitting the property in the event of explosion. Other safety measure are planned as well. Thank you all for making sure that I didn't forget the safety issues.

Do you have any idea how to wire this thing. I have experience with wiring many things but I don't know which wire is for what on this washing machine motor. It's a Kenmore model 110.200.72993. It's a 3 speed direct drive motor. I live in USA so it's 110volt. Thanks !

Photo 1 above is the sticker on the motor

Photo 2 above is the entire motor

Photo 3 above is the wire harness pluged into the motor

Photo 4 above is where the wire harness plugs into on the motor

Photo 5 above is another angle of where the wire harness plugs into the motor

Is there any reason you were quoting a post without saying anything? I deleted this last time as it's a common spammer tactic to get around some of the limitations we have on new member privileges.
Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi
