On your Model Number Tag you will also find your serial number and possibly a version number. The version number comes in handy if the product was updated in some manner during its build cycle. Such as having a different circuit board installed during manufacturing to remedy a problem that was discovered after production began. You will also see the manufacture date and you can even determine which plant your appliance was assembled at what shift it was completed on and if the factory runs more than one line, what line it came off of. This information can be very useful when researching a problem that has become common with a certain model.
Having the model number also comes in handy when ordering accessories for your appliance such as water filters for your refrigerator, or a drying rack for your dryer, or a new dispenser for your wash machine or dishwasher. There are so many reasons to keep these numbers handy not only for your repairman but for insurance purposes also.
Most appliance manufacturers make the label readily accessible from the front of the machine or inside the door. Always look along the edges of the opening of the door or if it is a range look along the edge of the drawer opening.
On microwaves look on the edge of the door itself. Still some manufacturers will place the label on the back of the appliance but most make it so the machine does not need pulled out or uninstalled.
This is an example of what the Model Number Label looks like.
Below are some ideas of where the model numbers are located.
