Read this blog on search by SKU Woocommerce for more information.

Currently, you can only search for WooCommerce SKUs in the admin of your shop (the “Products” list), and this search is restricted to only parent product SKUs, not variation SKUs. In WooCommerce 2.5, you’ll be able to search your admin by SKU for parent product SKUs and variation SKUs.

However, this search functionality isn’t available on the frontend of your site; customers cannot search for product SKUs to return a list of products. If customers search for all or part of an SKU, and the search query isn’t contained anywhere else on the site, they’ll get no results.search by sku woocommerce
