1st and 2nd Alpha Character = Where Manufactured
1st Numeric Character = Last Digit of Year Manufactured
2nd and 3rd Numeric Characters = Week of Year Manufactured
4th though 8th Digit = Order of Manufacturing that Week.

For Example, LA81503430 is a refrigerator manufactured in the 15th week (April) of 1998.

Electrolux Hidden Date Codes - Insurance Claims

For insurance claims, it is important that forensic engineers be able to determine the date that an appliance was manufactured. Fires often destroy paper or metal foil tags. Electrolux, like other major manufacturers, stamp hidden date codes into the metal of their appliances.

For Electrolux clothes dryer, there is a three digit code in the back upper right corner of the dryer. The following three tables are used to determine the manufactured date:

1st Letter
