Yep Gary this brand / type of motor is in washing machines that are produced in New Zealand and I reckon it you liver near enough to running water it would negate the need to muck about with spent water.
I have had this brand of washing machine (Fisher and Paykel) for years now and because the motor "spindle/ shaft" is the inner paddles it makes it very efficient. The only thing that would put me off is having the rewind those windings. I did toy with making an old machine into a gear driven windmill but never have the time.
