As of 2015, the model number for a General Electric top-loading washer may be found under the lid near the right hinge, on the back of the control panel, or on the outside bottom left corner. It may also be near the water outlets on the back of the machine.
It is important to have access to the washer's model number because it is necessary for downloading online guides and manuals, to order parts and accessories, and to schedule service and repairs. It is also needed to register the appliance. Registering a washer enables GE to contact customers in case of a safety recall or required warranty service.
