speed of washing machine

washuserFebruary 21, 2013


I have a maching machine with maximum speed of 1400 rpm.

But I am afraid that sometimes the speed is automatically reduced to lower limit. I donôt like this, I want the my washing machine always reaches the maximum speed because I spent a lot of money for it.

is there a simple way to measure the speed of the drum? stroboscope light can be a way? or other ways?

I thank you for your help

You can try getting a Laser RPM measurement tool.

Different cycles may have different max spin speeds. Have you checked your owners manual?

I see you have already posted the question in the German forum. Your Siemens won't go up to max speed if it's unbalanced.
