Please forgive my ignorance, but am I right to presume that any washing machine motor with a bunch of 5 wires attached, like shown below, is a three phase motor? I've seen folk on Youtube control washing machine motors speed with an inverter, so I am just curious to know, is it as simple as seeing the 5 wires attached, to realise it is a three phase motor. (I realise the other two are for the tacho). Thanks
