My wife and I purchased a new washing machine in Germany (230V 50 Hz) while we lived there and recently moved back to the US (110V 60 Hz). We received our new washer in our crate shipped from Germany and I purchased a power converter. Problem is the Hz in incorrect and the washer does not operate correctly due to the onboard computer needing 50Hz. Would it be cheaper to purchase a new washer rather than a Hz converter to run the machine?
It is a Beko washing machine and the panel on the back says 230v/50Hz 2200 watt max output. Any help you can give is greatly appreciated. I purchased a 5000 watt transformer and the rest of our shipped German devices work perfectly on it. I ran a microwave and a toaster at the same time so I know the voltage is good. But not the frequency. Is there a company that would make a device to convert US 60 Hz to 50 Hz for my machine?
