Firstly apologies for my limited electrical knowledge but I am hoping someone on here might be able to tell me where I am going wrong.

I have taken a Fisher Paykel motor out of a washing machine. It is a 36 pole version. I have rewired it to 3 x 4C as per the great diagrams on this site. I have cut back the parts of the washing machine housing and am still using the original hub from the washing machine.
I have wired it up to a 3 phase rectifier and then is wired to a light bulb. Hand turning produces nothing. I attached it to an ammeter which produced a large amount of resistance in terms of finding it hard to hand turn it.
I have attached a couple of photos to show you how far I've got. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Seb the novice.
