    dyer! Sorry I don't have the model number. I have a baby on the way and
    a small house. I was pretty sure I would get no sleep between the baby
    crying and the baby crying because of that darn buzzer!



    The buzzer is attached to the timer with a quick connect post. Access
    the controls by unscrewing the large panel above the washer door. You
    will need a square screwdriver or a very small flathead and some vice
    grips to get it started. The panel will fall forward onto the washer.
    In mine there was a pouch with an electrical diagram of the unit. To release the controls, two more screws must be removed from the sides of the small
    panel housing the controls. Once again you need a square screwdriver or
    a very small flathead and some vice grips to get it started. Once these
    are out you should be able to lift the control panel up and it will
    fall forward. Get a small box or stand to put on the washer. This will
    support the panel as the wires are not that long. On the left side of
    the timer controls you will see a quick connect post
    marked with an "H". Disconnect this wire and your problems are solved.
    Beautiful silence! I put electrical tape on the quick connect wire. Not
    sure if I needed to as I'm not an electrician. Hope this helps.

You would have to just disconnect it from behind the control panel. Make sure your turn the breaker off to it, if you are planning to do this on your own.

It sits right next to the timer, with 2 wires that connect to the timer.

Remove the 2 screws from the angled front panel below the console and lift up on the panel to remove it.

Remove these screws on both the left and right sides below the console.

Lift slightly and the console panel will roll off towards you.

On this repair I didn't need to remove the whole consol but it is possible to completely remove the consol from the unit. Unplug all the male-female wire plugs and the pressure switch hose from the water level control/pressure switch.

How can I disable the buzzer on my maytag supersize capacity 7 cycle electric dryer? It is SO loud! Thanks!


Most of these dryers have the buzzer located in the upper console somewhere. If you're handy with a screwdriver you'll have to take some screws out, maybe take the back off and hunt around inside there for a small, round item with two wires going to it. Disconnect one side and try the dryer for the end of a cycle. If the buzzer doesn't go off you're good. If it does, reconnect the wires you removed and look for another item similar to it. Basically that's all there is to it, just finding it is the hard part.

How can I disconnect the alarm when the drying is finished?


  • Turn 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.

    Locate 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.

  • 3

    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.

    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.

    Before you run in there with a hammer, is there any way to simply turn off the buzzer alert? I have a different dryer, but I can disable the buzzer. Please check the operator's manual first. If you've gotten to the point of no return, you can disable the buzzer - carefully. Never leave any exposed wires dangling about.

    Cycle complete BUZZER


    I too was terribly annoyed by the volume of the buzzer on the Frigidaire Gallery set that I have in my apartment. Because there is no way to turn it off with a switch I decided to look around and managed to find a technician manual that had some diagrams of where the buzzers are located.
    I managed to turn both of them off and then put together a manual with pictures labeled detailing what you need to do. It takes about 5-10 minutes and requires nothing more than removing 6 screws and then pulling and taping off 2 wires but make sure you turn the power off first :)
