  Spiral gyrator for washing machines - Patent 4391107
While the gyrator is operated in a normal direction of rotation and wash at its base is being driven outwardly by the spiral surface and the jets, the spiral on the lower portion of the post drives the wash downwardly to the vicinity of the base.
While the gyrator is operated in the reverse direction to cause an upward flow in the center of the tub, the upper spiral on the post tends to force the wash downwardly and thereby prevents materials that are being washed from being pushed over the top of the post.
Even when the gyrator is operated in the direction for causing downward flow in the center of the tub, the reverse upper spiral is required in washing machines in which the direction of rotation of an electric motor is reversed to change from a washing cycle to a spinning cycle.

The primary use of a gyrator is to simulate an inductive element in a small electronic circuit or integrated circuit.

It occurred to me that the problem could very well be a result of the gyrator tuning function of the circuit being too close in proximity to the amplifier function, inasmuch as both functions are on the same integrated circuit chip.

 ME 244L Pre-Lab Note   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A basic gyrator is a two-port modeling element used to represent physical devices that have the following characteristics.
The unique nature of devices we model with a gyrator is that there exists a relationship between the effort on one port and the flow on the other, usually derived from a physical law.
Restrict the relationship to be power-conserving (we could add the necessary losses later), so T*omega = v*i, where omega is the angular velocity of the motor shaft and v is the voltage across the "gyrator" model for electromechanical conversion in the motor.

A gyrator is a non-reciprocal two-port network which presents an impedance at one port proportional to the reciprocal of the impedance attached to a second port.
In other words, a gyrator is basically an impedance inverter, where the load on the output is the inverse of the impedance on the input.
Because the transistors exhibit intrinsic characteristics which influence the inductive response of the active inductor circuit, a feedback network is connected to the gyrator configuration to compensate for the intrinsic characteristics of the transistors.
