Customer: replied 5 years ago. going back to the house to let the dog out so i will look for it...where would the number be on the washer?
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
hopefully its along the top of the control panel. it could be under the lid which would be bad because the lid is locked, let me know. thanks Bryan
