If your dryer also starts without pressing the start switch, then the push to start switch
contacts are stuck in the closed position. Sometimes you can press the button on-off-on-off
quickly to unjam the contacts, otherwise replace switch.

    On a Kenmore in my home I was able to remove the push to start switch from the control panel, taking a digital picture first noting which wires went where, and carefully take the push button switch apart (it only had snap together type assembly tabs-no glue). Taking the switch apart carefully and observing how things were aligned as I slowly took it apart, I then un-stuck the contacts - burnished/filed them finely a bit - put it back together, tested it - and its been working fine since. The push button contacts that were stuck were well pitted so it might happen again. If it happens again soon, replace the switch. If it works fine for years, you saved the cost of a new switch and the dryer down time. My wife was very happy to have it back in operation so easily.

My whirlpool dryer starts and seems to run normally but the buzzer stays on during the whole cycle... Even if the switch for the buzzer is in the off position. It's only 3 years old!


Are sure that it is the buzzer and not something that could be sounding like the buzzer? Any other things that appear to not be right?

When you push start to begin drying a load, a buzzer sounds for about 20 seconds, the buzzer then shuts off and nothing else happens.

Buzzer won't go off when dryer is stopped - All else works fine - must leave door open


Fiddled around with the start button. It had gotten stuck in the on position and when I moved it around it freed up. I consider this a temporary fix only and have already ordered a replacement switch.
