I have a washer motor that has a water pump coupled directly to the motor.  It's not clear to me which windings go where for connecting it to 120vac.  Also, I don't see a starting capacitor in the circuit anywhere (although there IS a "starter" winding).

I'd sure appreciate help on this.  There is a PDF of the circuit at:

Thanks much -

You're SO kind to have put all the work into my question and I'm embarrassed to say your short-hand is just too "short" for me.  I've attempted to work on the motor with your notes, but I guess I'm just too slow minded.  I just don't understand what you've said.

Could you maybe explain just a little more (I'll understand completely if you say you don't have time!)?

Thanks again,

If there's an optimum speed for the pump to perform, that would be preferable.  In lieu of that, I'd take the slow speed.

most washer pumps are gravity fed on the intake side, i doubt they would self prime

also the motor will not last very long if it is used for long periods of time

its not continuous duty

Yes - the wires are clipped back to about 4" long - but they are there.
