If it is the electro-mechanical type that has a electric coil with a metal strip over the top you can bend the metal strip away from the coil to shut it up. You should never alter the electrical design of any product unless instructed by the manufacturer to do so.

How can I disconnect the alarm when the drying is finished?


  • Turn off and unplug the dryer. Since you need to remove the front panels and expose the electrical wiring of the dryer's buzzer you should turn the dryer off and then unplug the machine to avoid shocks. Once the dryer has been unplugged, turn its dial to the "on" setting to make sure the dryer is completely powered down.

    Locate the buzzer. The best way to locate the dryer's buzzer is to check the machine's schematic or manual. The buzzer is usually located behind the front panel of the machine. In some cases the buzzer is located behind the dryer's back panel. Dryer buzzers are generally small black boxes that are wired to the timing device.

    Pull the buzzer's wires. The most simple way to deal with a buzzer is to pull the wires that run into the buzzer. The wires should pull free with a firm but careful tug. Once you've disconnected the wires from the buzzer simply run a good amount of electrical tape over the ends so that no live wires are exposed. If you want to get the wires out of the way, tape the wrapped wires to the top or side of the dryer panels.

    Test the machine. Once you've yanked and taped the buzzer's wires, plug the dryer back in and turn the machine on to test the buzzer. If the machine still buzzes at the end of the cycle then you removed the wrong wires. However, chances are that the machine will finish its drying with a quiet whimper instead of a loud buzz.

    I have an older kenmore dryer. i want to disconnect the signal buzzer. can i do that?


    Since there is no switch to turn off the signal on the dryer, you would need to unplug the laundry centerand disconnect one or both wires that are connected to the dryer buzzer. The buzzer is shown as Key 38 in the first image below. The procedure for accessing the buzzer in this type of laundry center is provided in the second image below. You would need to insulate any wires disconnected from the buzzer with electrical tape or a wire nut to prevent them from shorting to the dryer cabinet.You should only conduct this procedure if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely complete the process. Be sure to unplug the laundry center before accessing internal components. Internal metal edges can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended.

    Is there any way to turn off the buzzer when the drying time is over...or at least turn it down?


    If the model number you have this listed under is correct, there is a buzzer module located inside the control panel. It is a fixed module, which means it cannot be adjusted. So, if you wish to get rid of the noise, you will have to unplug it. All you should have to do is UNPLUG the dryer and remove the back of the control panel. Disconnect any leads from the buzzer module and wrap them each in electrical tape to keep them insulated.

    If you go to appliancepartspros.com you can view what I am talking about. The buzzer is listed as item 12 under the "Backsplash, Blower and Motor Assembly" heading. When typing in your model number use "DBXR463ED0WW. The digit before the that two letters is a "zero", not the letter "O".

    If you have questions, or if you have not provided the correct model number, pease post back with the correct information so that I maybe able to assist you better. I hope this helps you.

    Kenmore stackable washer dryer. Dryer buzzer is


    Just solved this problem for a Kenmore stackable washer dyer! Sorry I don't have the model number. I have a baby on the way and a small house. I was pretty sure I would get no sleep between the baby crying and the baby crying because of that darn buzzer!

    The buzzer is attached to the timer with a quick connect post. Access the controls by unscrewing the large panel above the washer door. You will need a square screwdriver or a very small flathead and some vice grips to get it started. The panel will fall forward onto the washer. In mine there was a pouch with an electrical diagram of the unit. To release the controls, two more screws must be removed from the sides of the small panel housing the controls. Once again you need a square screwdriver or a very small flathead and some vice grips to get it started. Once these are out you should be able to lift the control panel up and it will fall forward. Get a small box or stand to put on the washer. This will support the panel as the wires are not that long. On the left side of the timer controls you will see a quick connect post marked with an "H". Disconnect this wire and your problems are solved. Beautiful silence! I put electrical tape on the quick connect wire. Not sure if I needed to as I'm not an electrician. Hope this helps.

    I want to disconnect the buzzer sound on my dryer


    First of all if you can remove the back of the console to expose the timer and switches, there is usually a small block with 2 wires to it, and it has no knob connected, this is usually the alarm buzzer, remove 1 wire and tape it off,then try the dryer if no alarm wala.

    • the buzzer is located under the control panel. 
    • you can unplug it.
    • unplug the dryer or turn the breaker off first
    • then take out the 2 screws on both sides of the control panel
    • bull it forward toward you and unhook it from the case
    • you should see the buzzer with two wires going to it
    • only need to disconnect one.
    •  just make sure you wrap the bare wire connector with electrical tape to keep it from touching metal.

    Buzzer sound


    The buzzer on most Kenmore dryers is a separate 115V AC unit, and can be unplugged (be sure your power cord is disconnected!)
    -- better yet, you might find an older style replacement door chime that is also a 110-115V unit, attach the wiring to this unit and have
    a rather melodious or at least just a pleasant "ding-dong" chime instead of the obnoxious buzzers that all the companies seem to be using today.
