How do you tell the age of a used washer and dryer?

I am thinking of buying a used washer/dryer. It is very hard to tell by model number and serial number how old something is. Is there a system to know how? Or better yet, what used models and serial numbers do you recommend. I would like something no more than 5 years old. I have viewed models that "LOOK" great and found out they are from 1994. That is way too old. You just can't tell by looking. HELP, I am going to buy the appliances at something like St. Vincent De Paul or a private dealer. The gentleman who answered my last washer/dryer question was really good gave way to look up user manuals and everything. He told me about problems with that model that they were known for.
Be as specific as possible to recommend model numbers and not just brands.

Hi, you said "The charts in the image below show the serial number formats for the major manufacturers (Whirlpool, Frigidaire and GE)." Where are the charts? Thanks, gail
