Let’s explain what the FD number is, the serial number of the washing machine Bosch, Siemens, how to find the serial number of the washing machine Bosch, Siemens, how to find the year of manufacture of the washing machine Bosch, Siemens. How to find out if the washing machine is fake. And also how to find out where the washing machine Bosch, Siemens is made.

Which means FD number, Z-NR, washing machine serial number Bosch, Siemens, Gaggenau

Washing machines from Bosch, Siemens are produced by one BSH Hausgeräte GmbH group of companies, which has adopted its own standard for specifying the assembly date and serial number. Therefore, the decoding of the serial number and date of manufacture of washing machines is the same for Bosch, Siemens, Gaggenau.

Information about the Bosch, Siemens washing machine is printed on an information sheet which is glued to the back of the washing machine. A duplicate of the basic information sticker (assembly date, serial number) is on the inside of the door of the washing machine and the information on both stickers must match.

Z- Nr Bosch, Siemens decode

What is Z NR?

This is the ordinal number of the washing machine assembled on the assembly line.

Z- Nr. – 200430

  • 2 – assembly line number
  • 00430 – washing machine number, we decipher so, in July 2009 at the second assembly line, this washing machine was 430 descended from the conveyor. The 5-digit designation allows assigning the number 99999 to the washing machines, which is 3225 washing machines per day, 134 per hour, 2 per minute. It is clear that such a number is not possible to produce on one conveyor and 5 digits is enough.

Bosch, Siemens washing machine serial number decode explained

The washing machine is also assigned a serial number with additional information. The serial number is an additional protection from the manufacturer of their washing machines. This number controls the correctness of the washing machine information, the serial number consists of 18 digits 489070250386004303 and is deciphered as follows.

It should be noted that washing machines produced before 2000 had no serial number. The manufacturer only provided information about the model number, year of production and washing machine number.

How do I know which country the Bosch/Siemens/Gaggenau washing machine is made in?

  • 48 – is the code of the factory where the washing machine was assembled. The factory where the washing machines are assembled is assigned an individual code. By this code, you can determine which country the washing machine was assembled in.
    • 40 – Germany
    • 41 – Poland
    • 42 – Germany
    • 43 – Turkey
    • 45 – Germany
    • 48 – Germany
    • 84 – Thailand
    • 85 – USA
    • 87 – China
    • 88 – Russia
    • 99 – Germany
  • 9 is the year of manufacture, the last year of the decade. The date of manufacture can be found in detail in the FD number.
  • 07 – month of manufacture.
  • 0250386 – manufacturer’s internal code, which contains service information, such as suppliers of components.
  • 00430 – washing machine number
  • 3 – Serial number control code, used to check the correctness of the serial number.

Fake serial number, Bosch washing machine

Sometimes there are discrepancies between the serial number, FD codes and the washing machine serial number. As an example in the photo above. According to FD and Z-Nr information, the washing machine was manufactured in 2001 in May and it left the conveyor under the number 3545. According to the serial number, the washing machine was manufactured in 2001 in December and was manufactured at 90733.

It’s a fake sticker, the following says it:

  • the Z-Nr. number must be six digits.
  • production date in FD and serial number are different
  • The number of washing machines produced by Z-Nr. is very large 3543, on the conveyor 3543 washing machines produced per month 120 per day, this is a lot, although on large lines at the end of the month it is possible. But according to serial number 90733, the washing machine was just 100,000 washing machines per month, that’s not possible.
  • doesn’t match the Z-Nr and the ZNR code in the serial number.

Those who printed the sticker did not know that the serial number should have information FD and Z-Nr. We do not recommend buying such a washing machine. Since the washing machine was not made by Bosch, or it is another model of an earlier model to which a fresh sticker was attached. Or alternatively, the washing machine is assembled from several washing machines, then the sticker is printed.

  1. Thank you so much for this article! I recently bought a Bosch washing machine and I was curious as to when and where it was produced. Your article is the only one in the web (as far as I searched anyway) that thouroughly explains every single aspect of the serial code and helped me track down the actual date, assembly line and country of manufacture of my machine
