I need to turn off dinging timer

This is so silly, but my dog is petrified of the dinging sound my Maytag Intellidry dryer makes when the clothes are about dry. It will ding about 4 times before actually turning off, about one minute apart. I don't have the manual, but need to know if there's a way to keep this dryer silent!

    I would also like to be able to turn off the buzzer on my Maytag dryer, I found the owners manual on-line and it doesn't say anything about how to shut it off.

    I can't dry clothes when the baby is sleeping because the dang buzzer will wake her up! I haven't been able to find any help for this issue.

    About a month ago I did unscrew the back panel and cut the bell off. It works great now and my dog isn't scared. Try it. It isn't complicated.

So far as I know, nobody has designed anything into these things to shut them off. Usually, they're located in the instrument panel area. Take off the back cover. Short cycle the machine, locate it and, with the power off, cut the wire. You can extend the wires and fit an ordinary light switch to them to turn the feature back on. Mount the switch in a plastic electrical box and fasten it to the unit or the wall.

My Maytag Atlantis Intellidry Dryer won't start unless I move it around

If you have to move the whole machine then I would say you have a bad wire somewhere. If you have to move the timer around then you have a bad timer.

Check the door interlock switch. If it is defective, the machine will not start. If no help, then there may be trouble in the control panel.

I have a maytag intellidry dryer and when finished with drying, clothes or whatever are still damp

Check the ventilation for lint. You may need to replace the duct vents if you have any. The lint tends to build up and prevent the dryer igniter from staying on thus the clothes do not dry all the way.

Check drive belts. If too loose or too worn it will not spin at proper speed.
