I found information about hidden date codes on appliances at www.electrical-forensics....
Wouldn't it be great if the system went back to the beginning of the 20th century for all appliances?
Electrolux (North America) Hidden Date Codes ... Electrolux Brands:
Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Philco, Tappan, White-Westinghouse and White Consolidated Industries (WCI).
- Insurance Claims
For insurance claims, it is important that forensic engineers be able to determine the date that an appliance was manufactured. Fires often destroy paper or metal foil tags. Electrolux, like other major manufacturers, stamp hidden date codes into the metal of their appliances.
For Electrolux clothes dryer, there is a three digit code in the back upper right corner of the dryer. The following three tables are used to determine the manufactured date:
The Code is AMB - January 2002
The 3-Digit Code is AMB, which corresponds to January 2002.
The breakdown for Electrolux Serial Numbers is:
1st and 2nd Alpha Character = Where Manufactured
1st Numeric Character = Last Digit of Year Manufactured
2nd and 3rd Numeric Characters = Week of Year Manufactured
4th though 8th Digit = Order of Manufacturing that Week.
For Example, LA81503430 is a refrigerator manufactured in the 15th week (April) of 1998.
