    Na...it was a 3 phase washer. You take a motor get it spinning with a series of capacitors in the circuit. And you can actually create a third phase out of single phase. I know I'm simplifying it. But if one knows what they are doing. It can be made to work. There's actually a thread on this here somewhere.

    what i mean is - the equipment and capacitors - if purchased and commissioned by someone like us, would be more than the OP wants to spend
