I'm a beginner in this field so please forgive me if I'm confusing with my question.
There is a component that I can't understand with Ohm's law which is a washing machine drain pump. Washing machine drain pumps from most manufacturers have similar specifications. Their winding resistance is usually between 10-20 Ω and it operates under 120 VAC.
However the specifications written on the label are quite different. 120 VAC, 1.1 A, and 80 W.
The actual current draw, 0.9 A, is close to the specification value which is 1.1 A.
I really don't understand that according to Ohm's law the resistance value calculated per the specification should be (R = U/I) 133.33 Ω where U is 120 V and I is 1.1 A.
But why is the winding giving me 14.8 Ω?
Shouldn't it draw 8.11 A as I = U / R = 120 V / 14.8 Ω = 8.11 A?
