    I bought both at an auction @1996.

  • jayeffel Sep 19, 2008

    As stated at least four times these are Whirlpool appliances; I would venture they made in  1970-80's..

    The nearest date I can come up with is 1975.

    You did not include the BRAND name of the appliance. Is this a Maytag? The model number and serial number on Maytags are usually on the back of the operator console. If this were a Whirlpool model the information for the washer would be located along the washer tub rim under the lid. A Whirlpool dryer has this information along the dryer door opening. The reason I ask for the manufacturer is because I can't find an exact match for the model number you provided, but the letter designations provided for the model numbers do match at least three different manufacturers (Jenn-Air, Whirlpool, and Maytag). All these manufacturers identify their date codes differently.

    Are there LETTER designations in front of the serial number? If so, I need those letters as well.

    I need the MAKE (Brand name) and SERIAL number in order to determine the age.

We moved into a new house that has a Whirlpool Duvet washer and dryer. I was wondering what year they are. Model # for the washer is WFW9300VU02 and the serial number is CSW4003338


The date of manufacture is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER on the appliance. The following link explains how to determine the age of your Whirlpool appliance:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576437-determining_the_age_of_your_whirlpool_ap

The SECOND DIGIT in the serial number represents the YEAR the appliance was manufactured. The first two numbers following that digit, represent the WEEK (52 weeks in a year) the appliance was manufactured. So, based on the serial number you have listed, the WASHER was manufactured in October of 2005.

These appliances are commonly sold as a set, so you may find the dryer was manufactured around the same time. If you need assistance determing the age of the dryer, please post back with the SERIAL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

The dryer is made by Whirlpool and its age can be determined from the serial number. The second character (R) is the year while the first 2-digit of the number (13) is the week on that year the dryer was made. The dryer was made on the 13th week of the year code R which is 2004. The dryer was made approximately on April 2004, about 7 years ago. Click on the link below for further details on how to determine the age of dryers and washers made by Whirlpool.

I am thinking of buying a used Roper washer and dryer, model # RAX4232JQO and YREX4634JQO, respectively. Anybody know the year of the make? Are they good appliances? Thanks


Roper is manufactured by Whirlpool and uses Whirlpool parts. This is a fairly reliable washer and (from an appliance repairman's perspective) one of the easiest washers to troubleshoot and repair (if required). Nearly all the parts are inexpensive as well. The gearcase (transmission) is the most expensive part in the unit (about $150) and even it is simple to replace by the average do-it-yourselfer.

The dryer, if maintained properly, is also very reliable and an ease to work on. The heating circuits are the most common fail items and average about $100 to replace (all parts combined). This is also a simple appliance to work on from a repairman's point of view.

Make sure it is installed correctly, by using semi-rigid exhaust vent ducting. The following link can give you some helpful advice on how to maintain your dryer to prevent premature failure of components:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

The number one cause of any dryer heat related problems is caused by poorly installed, excessively long, kinked, or clogged exhaust vent ducting. I can't express that enough. Failure to maintain a dryer by cleaning it periodically can also create a fire hazard.

The age of the appliance is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER. The following link explains how to determine the YEAR and WEEK of manufacture:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576437-determining_the_age_of_your_whirlpool_ap

If the units are in fairly decent shape, I would seriously consider purchasing them. Even the older Whirlpool manufactured washer and dryers still use the the same parts as the newer models today. So, age isn't necessarily a factor.

If you have any questions, or need future advice (if you experience any problems), please let me know. I hope this helps you.

How old is the ghw9100lw1 washer and the gew9200lw1 dryer


The manufactured date is deterimed by the SERIAL NUMBER on these appliances. The following link explains how to determine the age of Whirlpool manufactured appliances:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2880489-determining_age_whirlpool_appliance

The first two NUMBERS of the serial number determines the week it was manufactured. The last digit before the numbers, determines the year. If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: The serial number criteria is for all appliances manufactured by Whirlpool. Your washer and dryer will use the same format.

Duet 4.4 Washer (not steam) power cord too short


Hi, you might be able to find an 8 foot dryer power cord at your local building supply or hardware, or electrical supply store. It will be labelled for a dryer. First look at the dryer receptacle. The cords come in two types, 3 or 4 wire, so get the one that will match youyt receptacle. The wirte should be # 10 minimum.
