What do the letters and numbers in the model number of a Samsung washing machine mean?

Samsung washing machines have model numbers; from the model number of the washing machine, you can learn the main parameters of the device and the year of development. But in some countries, it is more common to designate washing machines with a simplified name, which indicates only the series of the washing machine, for example, washing machine WW6500, WW7500. But you should know that washing machines presented in such a designation on the store’s website still have the whole model number. 

Samsung washer serial number lookup

There are several ways to find out the model number of your washing machine:

  1. Do you still have the documents for the washing machine issued by the store? Look in the papers, especially in the warranty sheet, which will indicate the washing machine’s model.
  2. If you bought a washing machine in an online store, you could see the purchase history; you can find the model number there.
  3. The model number of the Samsung washing machine is indicated on the information sticker located on the washing machine.

We will tell you in more detail where you can find the model number of your washing machine. Since the washing machine is quite heavy and can be installed stationary, the manufacturer thought of that. There are two stickers on the washing machine with the model and serial numbers.

  1. The first sticker with the information is taped to the back of the washing machine. But if access is not possible, you can use the second method.
  2. The second sticker is glued under the door to load the laundry. Look closer at the mounting hinges under the top hatch if you have a top-loading washing machine.

What year is my Samsung washing machine

  • J – is the year the model was developed. It is not the production date, but the year the washing machine went into production. Washing machines of one model can be produced for three years, and incredibly successful models even more. If you need to know the specific date of manufacture, look at the serial number to have information about the date of manufacture. This principle of marking the year of manufacture of household appliances is also used in other Samsung products. You should also know that Samsung reused the symbols after 13 years; this is not a mistake; no washing machine has been manufactured that long, so you can tell from the model plus the serial number what period the washing machine is.

The model number of the Bespoke series washing machines

The Bespoke series of washing machines did not appear until 2022. The series has freestanding washers and dryers, and they have a model number very similar to the ones I explained above. Another letter has been added to the model number to identify that this washer is from the Bespoke series. The model number of the Bespoke washing machine is WF53BB8900ADUS. After the year is the letter B, the Bespoke series. And the model number can be explained as follows. Front-loading washing machine, 5.3 cubic feet, the model year 2022, Bespoke line, 8 serie, 9 model in the series, 00 modification, AD design, made for the USA.

If a set consisting of a washer and dryer from the Bespoke series is offered, Samsung decided to do something simpler and not makeup model numbers but simply use a part number, such as BNDL-1657833433388; depending on the type of washer and dryer, the part number will vary.

BNDL-1657833038062: AI OptiWAsh + electric dryer
BNDL-1657833433388: AI OptiWAsh + gas dryer
BNDL-1657833641572: AI Smart Dial + electric dryer
BNDL-1657833857548: AI Smart Dial + gas dryer
