One of our customers bought a new KA dishwasher from Lowes last week and they told her flat out it only had a 1 year warranty total so not sure what is going on.

On the dryer, 1999 week 31 - on the washer, certainly pre-1991, when the new numbering system came in.

Anyone know who made Kenmore microwaves in 1981?  I would provide a model number, but that particular microwave is so old that the model number has been rubbed off the sitcker.

Without a model# the only other way to know for sure is to find a part# for a couple parts, (maybe marked on the actual parts), and be able to recognize them as a specific brand.

In the past lots of the Kenmore units where made by Sanyo if I remember correctly, (seemed like they had an extreme number of megtube going out in some of the Kenmore units bake around that time).

I also believe they had Sharp doing some of there microwaves back around that time also.

Actually, the model number was on the back.  The destroyed sticker must have been the radiation warning label.

The model number is 564.9908210

I can't remember what was in there--was either a Sanyo mag tube or a Sharp one.  I think it was Sanyo.  It was beautiful to see an appliance with absolutely no solid state parts!  And it still works!!

I just purchased a new dishwasher from Sears. I cannot figure out who made this one. Could I please get some help?
I am thinking Bosch (by the charts provided) but that doesn't seem right. The salesman said Whirlpool.

Model number is:02216039000

Used to have a Ge profile, but did not want to put in another $750 for one that only lasted 6 years and never cleaned that good.

Thanks, Brad

No can help without a real model#, what you gave is a Sears product number which only contains 022 - is product division,(I believe). The rest contains portions of the real model#.

The number we need is the one from the appliance model/serial# tag.

It will be 3 numbers (Dot) 7 or 8 more numbers.

The 3 numbers before the dot will tell us who made it.

Indeed it is, Willie. 6 is Water Treatment (softeners & R/O), 9 is recreation (treadmills etc.), 10 is HVAC, 22 is kitchen stuff (Cooking & Dishwashers), 26 is Laundry, 42 is Water Heaters, 46 is refrigeration, 57 is Home Electronics (TV etc.), 71 is Lawn & Garden.

Anyone,

Do you have a possible mfr date for my Kenmore Dishwasher or a website that can help decode the Serial number, like the URLs you have posted for the MFR Model code breakdown:

M: 363.15482000

s: DA307139R

You folks are awesome.  I called Sears for the information and they told me they could not tell me.

Thanks, KK

363. = G.E. built product CLICK HERE for info on G.E. build dates.

Serial# D = Month built (Feb.)
A = Year built (1977, 1989 or 2001)

I don't know about that, if it were a 2001 I would think it would come up in one of the 5 sites I use to research. Unless your model number is wrong it doesn't come up anywhere so there is a possiblity that it's a 1989, some of these machines if kept care of can still appear to be quite new from general appearances.
