A little bit about the model number and serial number. The model number of washing machines indicates the year when the model was designed and launched, since washing machines don’t evolve that much, one washing machine model can be produced for several years. You should know that Samsung produces washer or dryer models from 3 to 5 years old, and it is quite possible that you will find a washer model in the store that was developed three or even five years ago, the serial number indicates the production date with details down to the month, and you can see when the washer came off the assembly line.

How to find the model number and serial number of your Samsung washing machine

You may need the serial number when contacting a service center or if you want to know when your washer or dryer was manufactured. This is especially true if you bought a home with appliances. If your washer is broken, you can ask if it’s worth repairing, how old it is, if it might be cheaper to just buy a new washer.

The information sticker under the door is placed for the user’s convenience, and the model number and serial number of the washing machine can be easily seen on it.

You may ask why I need to know what year my washing machine was manufactured. If your washing machine works fine, then of course you are not interested in this information, but if you need to appeal to a service center. Information about the date of manufacture will be necessary to prepare an appeal. Also, you should know that the life of modern washing machines 7-10 years, if your washing machine is more than 10 years, the cost of repairs can be very high and it is economical to buy a new one.

  1. Hi,
    Your site is insightful. I am planning to buy a Samsung washing machine online, I see the model number Samsung WW90T554AAW/S2 . Can you tell what is /S2 stands for.

    Thanks

  2. I have most of the serial number from my Samsung Front Load washing machine and want to get parts or get it fixed I have X91354ASB00876 MISSING THE LAST DIGIT

    • SB – november 2009
      To find the right part, you need to know the model number of the washing machine. Given the date of manufacture, we can assume that the washing machine has reached the end of its service life. It may be more appropriate to buy a new one.

  3. Do you happen to know if there is a way to figure out if certain models or serial numbers were shipped to a particular retailer (home depot, lowe’s, best buy, etc)?

    • This is Samsung internal information, usually manufacturers keep records, but this information is not freely available.

  4. The year in the serial number of my washer is designated as an F, which is not on your chart. The model is WF42H5600AW/A2 Serial #0BEW5AEF404275P
    What year was my machine built? I’m looking to purchase drawer/stand accessories for both the washer and dryer. Do I need a particular model or are the accessories universal to all machines?

    • It is most likely the letter E (E4) April 2014, not F4. Yes, if you buy parts and accessories, they should match your washing machine model.

  5. My washer is a Samsung Steam Moisture Sensor HE. The Model #DV42H5200GW/A3
    Serial #0ABJ5BBF400778E
    Can you please tell me what year it was made? Thank you.
