Admiral Dishwasher

Who makes them

Serial number for age


See if you can find something here to help.


Maytag manufactures Admiral. There are four major dishwashing manufacturers in the United States:


High end — KitchenAid
Low end — Roper, Kenmore


High end — Jenn-Air, Magic Chef
Mid level — Amana
Low end — Admiral

General Electric

High end — General Electric
Low end — Hotpoint

and Frigidaire sells under its own label

I’m not familiar with the dating codes.

I had to verify this cause I thought it was a Ward’s Product:

David…GE and high end is a contradiction in terms.

Certainly not out here. Almost all of the multi-million dollar homes out here have GE appliances, usually stainless, and they are nice, nice, nice.

There is no coding in the serial number that I am aware of.

However, if you were able to read the serial number, usually right above it, off to the left or right, is the manufacture date.


If you were a manufacturer, wouldn’t you advertise your best over the others.

GE is simply putting their brand over their sister’s brand.
