German term or phrase: Walzenmotor
Wenn der Alarm für den Geschwindigkeitsregler aktiviert wird, ertönt der Alarm zwei Minuten lang und auf dem Display erscheint die Meldung "9960".
Die Wäschemangel wir automatisch ausgeschaltet. Dieser Fehlerzustand kann durch Überlastung des Walzenmotors ausgelöst werden, die wiederum durch ein dickes Objekt in der Wäschemangel oder durch Schmutz im Walzenmotor verursacht werden kann. Durch Neustart der Mangel kann der Alarm aufgehoben werden.

A text from the textile industry. Havent found the appropriate word for Walzenmotor. One translation I have is mill motor, but that doesnt seem great.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance
