I've got a Fisher & Paykel Kelvinator washing machine that is playing up.


It has since been replaced by another new washing machine, but I'm keen to sell the SmartDrive motor.




This is the famous efficient motor that has a million uses with hobbyists and electronic DIY'ers.


It might suit someone making a DIY electric bike, or DIY wind/water/human powered generator




Looking for $50


Pickup from Tauranga.


Its currently still inside the washing machine, so you either come and remove it, or else take the whole machine.

To clarify for others - it is not suitable for "electric bike" but can be built inot a stationary push-bike generator.
