Hello everyone,

Yesterday I got ahold of a Canadian Produced GM Frigidare Imperial dryer which I believe was manufactured in 1961 The model number is DIAFC-61 and is similar to American produced models from 1961 that read DIA-61. I believe that the additional two letters in the model number are to indicate a that it is a Canadian produced variant and that the two numbers after the dash indicate the year of manufacture as 1961. If someone more knowledgeable with GM Frigidaire products would confirm this fact for me I would greatly appreciate it.

Have a Great Day!

I think the C is for a Canadian model, the F probably means it is an air cooled condenser model [ needs no outside vent ] if so it is not the same dryer as a US DIA-61.

The 'C' is definitely the code for a Canadian-built model.  I had a WDAC-63 washer at one point (PhilR has it now) and it also mentioned on the model tag that it was built in Ontario (I think it may been Scarborough...)

The F stands for Filtrator which is Frigidaire's version of a condenser dryer system requiring no outside venting.
