I need help figuring out how to hook up an AC electric motor. I want to animate a Halloween project.

It's a General Electric appliance motor, scavenged years ago from an old washing machine. The thing is, it's got three pairs of wires coming from it (blue-white, green-pink, and yellow-red) see pic
. There are markings on it that tell me:
Code: R NTR3
RISE: 50° C CONT
Which wires should I hook to hot and neutral? What are the other ones for? I don't want to play randomly with line voltage....
