The breakdown for Bosch Serial Numbers is:
1st and 2nd Alpha Characters = "FD"
1st Numeric Character = Decade -2
2nd Numeric Character = Year
3rd and 4th Numeric Characters = Month
To determine the decade, add 2 to the first number, if the sum is 10 or 11 disregard the first 1.
For Example, the serial number of my Bosch Dishwasher is FD911100449. It was manufactured in 2011 - November.
