Maytag 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 or make unreadable paper or metal foil tags. Most major appliance manufacturers (Whirlpool and Electrolux) stamp hidden date codes into the metal of their appliances. If anyone knows where Maytag's hidden date codes are, please contact me.
