Your film was either not exposed or not put in developer prior to fixing.

If the frame numbers do not appear then the film was never developed prior to fixing.

The fixer clears everything that isn't developed. Even if the film was not exposed, the frame numbers would appear after development as these are pre-exposed onto the film edge.

The usual explanation for this is that you just forgot to add the developer to the water, and ended up giving your film a water bath instead of developing it.
