Tip & How-To about Washing Machines

Determining the Age of Your Whirlpool Appliance

This advice applies to all appliances manufactured by Whirlpool. Determining the manufactured date of most appliances is accomplished by looking at the SERIAL NUMBER. On Whirlpool appliances this is determined by the following method:

The 1st two numbers identify the WEEK produced, the 2nd digit identifies the YEAR.

Example: EK1201983 (March 2000)

0 - 1980/2010/2040
1 - 1981/2011/2041

7 - 1987/2017/2047
