Re: Timer and Shutoff
Go for the timer. The timer is nothing but a bunch of contacts and some minor electronics. When the timer reaches the end of it's cycle, it closes a set of contacts which sends power to the buzzer, which could be bad, therefore continued buzzing. If the timer continues on to the next cycle either the electronics or contacts are shot. This is also age dependant on the dryer how the timer is built. You might go into price shock depending on model. This is not ruling out that if you have a buzzer on off switch might be bad, but I doubt it. Hope this helps. If you are unsure and are good at reading schematics and a meter, then you can be sure.

Your timer most likely does need to be replaced. The timer has a small motor that causes it to rotate during the cycle and those can go bad causing the timer to not advance. Unfortunately, you cannot get just that timer motor anymore. Hope this helps!
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a
timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the
timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is bad and need replaced. If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some
dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not
advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat
inside the tub. replace the heating elements
If it happens during the auto-drying cycle, the moisture sensor could be faulty.
If it happens during the timed cycle, the operating thermostat may be faulty. A faulty operating thermostat can fail to turn the heaters off and allow the dryer to get too hot. When this happens, the high limit thermostat will turn off the machine. After it cools down, it will start again.
I would suspect the timer is on it's way out the door. Do you have any areas the timer has dead spots? Check the exhaust for any plugging also.Is this only on a first time start up or is it after this dryer has been running? If after running it could be a high temp sensor, that by the time you are playing around with it, the temp has changed.
Depending on the model some have a separate buzzer you can disconnect and tape off the leads to it. If it is an electronic timer you can muffle the sound by taking a piece of electrical tape and covering the whole on the small black speaker attached to the timer.
