Finding your model number

The different manufactures have put the model and serial plates in many different places, some common area's to find that model tag are listed below.
If you are trying to order parts, remember to copy down the model and serial # - some manufactures have used extra information on their model and serial tags that may be required to get the correct part or information on your appliance.
Some have had series #'s. - series 03
Some have had B/M #'s. - B/M# AH59A
Some have had P #'s or a manufacture #'s
Some Kenmore model#'s may have a space in them...example:
110 34567890 or 363 98765432 These are often written like 110.34567890 or 363.98765432 or 106.123456789
The first three numbers(110 or 365 or 106 etc may be different like it is stamped on and the rest of number may be printed.

Series 70, 80, 90, Profile, Gallery, Neptune, XL44, Gold, Elite, HE3, HE3T, Duet are names, but these are not model #'s.
If your appliance has the energy guide sticker or card still attached, do not go by the model # listed on this sticker. It is always incomplete version of the real model #. The energy guide is a rectangular sticker. Sales receipts, Use & Care manuals also usually do not have the full model# on them. It is not a bad idea to write down all your model #'s once you find them and store them along with the receipts and manuals.

After some models look to see if there is a space or two then maybe more letter or numbers.
