  1. Can I find out the washer capacity from the barcode? If the washing machine has no capacity label, how can I know its capacity?

    • Install barcode scanner software on your phone, scan the code. Try to find information on the Internet. If you don’t find anything, this barcode is for LG service centers only.

  2. Blah blah.
    Interesting article but English is just OMG, very uncomfortable to read. Even taking in account that I’m not English speaker I’m still feeling bad reading it. Seems author is from India….

  3. I just purchased a Korean made Brondell Swash 1400 bidet. Can anyone help? Is there a way to tell the date it was made/released from the serial number? It reads: Serial No: 00427 and then under that number is a smaller print number 1226481. There is also a separate barcode with the following; 204 02ERV 20506 00427.

    • Brondell brand
      Serial number
      00 – 2020
      04 – April
      27 – product batch number

      1226481 – code manufacture

      204 02ERV 20506 00427
      20 – 2020
      4 – April (1-9 and A, B, С, D)
      02E – revision number (RV)
      20506 – serial number in batch
      00427 – production date and batch number

  4. How can I tell if machine is 6 or 16 years old? Inherited with house purchase. No idea how old it is.

      • Yes but that only gives last digit so cant tell if 1 or 11 years. Trying to determine if still under warranty

        • You see the serial number, and there is also the model number. It looks like this WM3370HVA

  5. according to this my month of manufacture is 32 and the country code is “F”

    This simply does not work for the serial number on my machine.
