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!

Re: I need to turn off dinging timer

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.

Why does my maytag dryer medc200xw turn off in 10 minutes and has no heat

Could be overheating. It just may need a good cleaning. and make sure the dryer vent is clear with no obstructions. You may need to take some panels off. Also may be the gas valve solenoid.

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.

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.

The groaning sound seems as if the belt is broaken and the motor is trying to spin a little too fast because it doesn't have a load on it. Take a look to see if the belt is broken and if so, you can purchase a replacement belt at Lowes for approximately $7.00.
