Yesterday, a visiting appliance repairman had an interesting story.  He says 
that the solid-state uP motor controls are and DC motors are becoming very 
common; in particular, he says that front-loading washing machines need to 
reverse the direction of drum rotation, and that it is more reliable and 
cheaper to do it electronically (with a DC motor) than with a mechanical 
transmission.  FWIW.
