Question by taj: How is motor designed for 110v differ from a motor designed for 220v?
I would like to know an electric motor (like for example a washing machine motors) designed for 110 volts power will be different with the same motor designed for 220volts. In another words how can I modify an electric motor designed for 110 volts to be able to run with 220 volts power? I do not mean using a transformer to convert power source. My question is how can a motor itself can be modified?
Thank you for your answer.

FIRST I REMEMBER YOU THAT ONLY SOME ( FEW ) TYPES AND MODELS OF ELECTRIC DEVISES WORK WITH BOTH 110 AND 220 .
NEXT I TELL YOU THOES MACHINES THAT WORKES WITH BOTH ( 110 AND 220 ) ARE IN TWO TYPES :
1 .MACHEANS THAT HAS A KEY BEHIND IT AND USER CAN CHOOSE 110 OR 220 ,
2 .MACHEANS THAT HAS INTERNAL ELECTRIC DEVICE TO FINDOUT THE VOLTAGHE OR REDUCE IT FROM 220 TO 110 .
( I ALSO REMEMBER OU SOME ELECTRIC DEVICES CAN WORK WITH BOTH -AC- AND -DC-
POWER ( 12 DC AND 220 OR 110 AC ) )
AND NOW THE DIFFRENCE :
THERE IS MATHEMATICAL ROOLS BEETWIN AMPER AND WATT AND VOLTAGE AND …
ENGINEERS CAN BUILD DEVICES BY USING THESE FORMULAS TO BUILD A DEVICE .
FOR EXAMPLE , DIAMETER OF CABLE OF ENGIN ( SHELLED CABLE THAT COVERD WITH MAGNETS ) OR NUMBER OF ITS ROUND MAY DIFFRENT FROM 110 DEVICE TO 220 .
( ALSO I CAN REMEMBER YOU THAT FREQUENCY OF 220 V IS 50Hz )
What do you think? Answer below!
