Signal when dryer cycle is complete

The signal at the end of a drying cycle will not stop. It is a nasty sound, but usually only lasts a few seconds to let me know the drying cycle is complete. It no longer stops unless I open the door or pull the plug. How do I fix this?

Just purchased 2nd hand Miele novotronic w310. Does machine automatically stop? Cycle ends, anti crease light on and machine just tumbles clothes makes odd noise, then tumbles again. Is the normal?


NORMALLY WHEN A DRYER COMPLETES IT'S DRYING TIME IT WILL GO THROUGH A COOLING DOWN CYCLE,
DRYER WILL START TURNING WITH FAN ON ONLY FOR A FEW SECONDS THEN STOP, AFTER A SHORT PERIOD IT WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL UNIT HAS COOLED DOWN, HOPE THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING
GOOD LUCK

How do I turn on bell on my dryer


From the Whirlpool user manual:
(OPTIONAL) Your dryer may have an End Of Cycle Signal. The
signal is helpful when drying items that should be removed
from the dryer as soon as it stops.
?
On some models, the End of Cycle Signal is fixed.
?
On other models, the End of Cycle signal is part of the
Start button and is selectable. Turn the PUSH TO START
button to ON or OFF. The signal will sound only if the
selector is set to On.

Maytag dryer MD-24 error symbol?


The dryer completes the cycle you have set. If you do not remove the contents at the end of the cycle, the dryer performs the start-stop routine you describe until you get around to removing the contents. Eventually even the start-stop routine ends and the contents just lie in a heap until removed

I just bought a Samsung DV665JW dryer. Before it is completely dry, it stops, shows "end" on the display. I didn't take out the clothes for a while and then after about 15mins, it started drying again,...


This sounds like it is on a permanent press cycle. When it says end the clothes are dry.

Having said that....... If it is NEW this is a warranty repair. The moisture sensor is most likely the culprit causing the end of cycle trigger pre-maturely. Check around the moisture sensor for anything like bobby pins, straight pins, toothpicks (i.e anything foreign. Check the 2 strips and along the edges thoroughly for any foreigen matter.

If it is 2nd hand the moisture sensor is probably bad and passing false dry signals to the control. Again check for foreign debris before even thinking about replacing parts.

If you find nothing then before you buy parts there is a test for the moisture sensor. Just respond here and we can go from there.

I have an lg dryer model DLG5966W and the check filter light is on. It takes two cycles to completly dry my clothes. I cleaned the lint filter and still doesnt dry on one cycle. I then removed the filter...


Check your vent. Inspect the dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood of the home.
If there's a restriction in the vent--the clothing in the dryer takes longer to dry.
When an LG dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board.
When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes.
The final 6 minutes of any LG automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle.
If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed).
Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry. Bonus:
LG DRYER

Problem:
The dryer has an auto dry feature which never fully dries the clothes so we wind up manually setting the dry time to an hour.
Solution:
LG gas dryers are VERY temperamental in long vent set-ups. If fabric softener sheets are used in the dryer--clean the two stainless steel strips of metal on the lint filter housing with a SCOTCHBRITE PAD--scrub back & forth several times to remove the waxy residue from the fabric softener sheets. Most,if not all manufacturers do *not* recommend using sheets in dryers that have a moisture sensor (electrodes).
However--using a SCOTCHBRITE pad keeps the wax off those sensors which can be seen if looking *into* the dryer drum and at the lint filter housing.
If only *liquid* fabric softener is used in the washer--clean the dryer sensors once a month. Liquid softener also contains wax which can slowly accumulate on the dryer sensors from the laundry washed in the washer.

LG gas dryers are more sensitive to venting length and air flow resistance. The gas burner can cause a rapid increase in temperature compared to an electric burner.
Rapid temperature rise in a gas dryer leads to premature burner shutdown (longer time required to dry laundry).
The gradual temperature increase of an electric element is more "forgiving" in homes where the dryer venting is less than ideal.

Asko Dryer T711 relay chattering near the end of a cycle I


relays only have a specified life of x amount of switches x depending on the style and manufacturer, so there is a good chance it will fail eventually, if you know someone technically minded you could get them to change the relay which would be cheaper than the board its fitted too, as its at the end of the cycle i would guess it controls the heater as it cools down near the end to stop you buring yourself on the drum.
