Would the motor out of a washing machine, clothes dryer, or dish washer work as a generator?

These are relatively low RPM but I am not sure how much torque might be required to spin these at a rate
that couldt create some sort of usable energy...

Is there any appliance motor that can be salvaged for use as a generator like this?

Please advise

thank you
