So, the most popular manufacturers of washing machines mark their products with their own logo. Information about them can be found on the rear of the machine, on a special metal plate. However, there are plenty of brands of washing machines, which have their own names, having nothing to do with the company name of the manufacturer. And so the first thing we must look into the technical passport of the car.
But often the name of the company-the manufacturer says nothing about the country of manufacturing and Assembly.
