At least the scrapers won't brother with it as it is mostly plastic.

Hopefully you're right. Many of these destroyers of history and quality have the mistaken idea that motors are full of copper, which they are not. They're full of iron, and a *little* bit of copper.

Copper In Washer and Dryer Motors ?

combo52's profile picture

90% of the winding's in washer and dryer motors from around 1960- through now are aluminum with copper colored lacquer coating.


A lot of the three phase inverted high efficiency motors used in new HE washers and some DWs do have copper winding's again.
