Sounds like the push to start switch has gone bad. Not to expensive to fix, and pretty easy to do as well. You can remove the rear of the console, remove the push to start switch (lift the tab, then turn to unlock) and replace. Be sure to mark your wires so they go back in the right order. Jim

Assuming you mean the end of cycle alert. The only way to do this is to follow the wiring diagram and install a switch to cut it off.

The buzzer is inside the control switch area. Its about the size of 4 stacked 50 cent coins. Kill the power to the drier and then open the control panel and locate the buzzer. Remove the two wires; using electrical tape, you can tape up each wire end and then secure it out of the way. :?) DRRXR

Instructions

1Turn 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.
2Locate 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.

    On the Kenmore 70 series, can the buzzer be disconnected? Our 5 month old gets startled each time that damn dryer buzzes (It seems like it last forever!)


    Hi, did you try turning the buzzer off with the knob on the right side of the operation panel (which is also used as the start button)? If you turn that knob to the left, it should turn off the buzzer.

    If it still buzzes, the switch behind that knob may be faulty. You can get at it by removing the panel at the rear of the dryer (6 screws) and then you can test it and adjust its internal contacts if need be.

    Hope that helps!

    Buzzer at end of dryer cycle too loud. Can I turn it down or disengage it?


    Usually, there is a front panel control for buzzer volume or turn it off completely. If nothing there, you will need to locate the buzzer and either remove and tape the wires or if the unit has an opening, stuff some paper into the opening.

    Dryer buzzer is SO LOUD - How can I adjust volume/turn off?


    Buzzer mounted to back of control panel.

    **UNPLUG POWER BEFORE REMOVING CONTROL PANEL OR TOUCHING -ANYTHING-!**

    Located on left side of control panel, bolted to back. Small rectangular device with two connections and no associated button or dial.

    Remove the panel and disconnect one of the leads. Fold the connector back against its wire, carefully and securely tape the connector with electrical tape so it cannot touch anything. Also tape the connector on the buzzer that you removed the wire from.

    Re-assemble the control panel.

    As with anything mechanical, hours of frustration trying to take something apart can be avoided by taking a few minutes at the beginning to look closely at how it is assembled.

    • 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.
