A motor includes a stator, a rotor, a case, and back-surface magnet portions. The rotor has a first rotor core, a second rotor core and a field magnet. Each of the first and second rotor cores has a core base and claw-shaped magnetic poles. The field magnet is sandwiched between the first rotor core and the second rotor core and causes the claw-shaped magnetic poles of the first rotor core and the second rotor core to function as different magnetic poles. The back-surface magnet portions include a second and a first back-surface magnet portions respectively provided on the back surfaces of the claw-shaped magnetic poles of the second rotor core and the first rotor core. Size of the second back-surface magnet portion differs from size of the first back-surface magnet portion are different from each other.

In a noise suppression device of a washer pump, a first capacitor and a second capacitor are disposed with their height directions along a first direction orthogonal to an axial direction of the washer pump. This thereby enables installation space for the first capacitor and the second capacitor to be suppressed from becoming larger in the axial direction. A second terminal of the second capacitor is disposed between first terminals of the first capacitor. This thereby enables the installation space of the first capacitor and the second capacitor to be made smaller in the first direction and in a second direction orthogonal to the axial direction. The space between the pair of first terminals (the second terminals) is accordingly efficiently utilized for disposing the second terminal (the first terminal), enabling the first capacitor and the second capacitor to be disposed efficiently.

A motor includes a two-layer rotor and a two-layer stator. The two layer rotor includes an A-phase rotor and a B-phase rotor that are stacked together. When 1 represents, in electric angle, an angle of the B-phase stator relative to the A-phase stator in a clockwise circumferential direction, and 2 represents, in electric angle, an angle of the B-phase rotor relative to the A-phase rotor in a counterclockwise circumferential direction, 1+|2|=90 is satisfied.

There is provided a motor drive device including, a current detection section that detects current flowing between a power source and an inverter circuit generating voltage to be supplied to a motor, a voltage control section that outputs a first control signal to cause the inverter circuit to generate a voltage for rotating the motor at a rotation speed based on an instructed value, and a rotation speed suppression section that, in cases in which current, detected by the current detection section at a timing at which a voltage generated by the inverter circuit rises from low level to high level, is a predetermined threshold value or higher, outputs a second control signal to the voltage control section to cause the inverter circuit to generate a voltage for rotating the motor at a lower rotation speed than the rotation speed based on the instructed value.
