A serial number on a Maytag dishwasher can be found on the number tag beside the model number of the appliance. Serial numbers are easily identified as they consist of eight digits followed by two letters. An example of a Maytag dishwasher serial number is 11493143CJ.
The number tag on a Maytag dishwasher can be located in several different areas depending on the model. The most common areas to find a number tag include the top of the door jamb, on the upper left hand corner of the machine, on the underside of the control panel and on the door itself.
Once the number tag has been located, the serial number can be identified easily. The serial number may be required if the appliance has broken and requires replacement parts. It may also be required if attempting to troubleshoot the appliance either online or via Maytag customer service. The most important part of the serial number is the first two digits, which are known as the series numbers. These are used to identify the correct replacement parts for the model.
It is also possible to use the last two letters of the serial number to find out when the appliance was manufactured. The first letter represents the year, and the second letter represents the month it was manufactured.
