If you can check on the motor below , if will be marked for the specification ,the voltage will be written .
Now converting a 110 to 220 is a littler expensive and might not be recommended by the economical scale as you will need a step down transformer with a high rating of power. ...will cost.
so decide to check and if 220 ,you will be lucky

Leaking around heating element posts that protrude through dishwasher body


Some dishwashers like your model number are under recall for a potential fire hazard due to water leaking through the heating element posts onto the wiring.
Your serial number must begin with the 2 letters listed . Below is the list of recall serial numbers: FL, GL, HL, LL, ML, VL, ZL, AM, DM, FM, GM, HM, LM, MM, RM, SM, TM, VM, ZM, AR, DR, FR, GR
Call the phone # below or check out GE recall website. What GE does is replace the element and gaskets, unless there is burnt or arcing visible on the wires, they may replace the dishwasher.

www.geappliances.com/products/recall
GE has determined that an electrical failure in the dishwasher's heating element can pose a fire hazard. GE will provide a free repair to all consumers with units affected by the recall. We ask that you not use your dishwasher until it is repaired and to disconnect the electric supply by shutting off the fuse or circuit breaker controlling it and inform all users of the dishwasher about the risk of fire.
Consumers who instead wish to replace their dishwasher with a new model can receive a rebate towards the purchase of certain new GE and Profile brand dishwashers. Consumers can use a rebate of $75 for the purchase of certain GE front-control plastic tub dishwashers, or a GE rebate of $100 for the purchase of certain GE front-control stainless tub dishwashers or GE Profile top control dishwashers. See the rebate form for eligible models.
GE is aware of 15 reports of dishwasher heating element failures, seven of which resulted in fire and smoke damage beyond the unit. No injuries have been reported.
The model and serial numbers are important, as not all dishwashers are included in the recall. Look at the inside on the front left side of the dishwasher tub to find the model and serial number.
This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which will also monitor the effectiveness of the recall program.
Recall Hotline
866-918-8760
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. ET.
Before calling, have the model and serial numbers on hand.

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.

Model DDE5100M dryer..serial number VF22384GG is it 220volts or 110volts?????/


Your dryer is called 220, but in actuality it is only 110 X 2. If you have a 3 pronged plug to go into the wall, each of the slanted & flat prongs are carrying 110 volts. The roundish center prong is a ground.
One of the flat prongs is for the motor and the controls, the other is for the heating element. If you have a 4 pronged plug, the two side flat parallel lugs are 110 volts each, and the top flat and the roundish lugs are both ground.
Be blessed.

Where is the serial number on GE 7-cycle automatic dryer?


More than likely, you will find the model number and serial number either on the back of the unit, on top of the back of the control panel, or inside the door--on the door or on the front case inside the door. If you don't see it on any of these places, let me know and I'll research more.
Best, G
