My washer has started being loud when it spins out and is draing . I was wondering why. I wondered if something was getting ready to break.


Welcome to Fixya gojigirl,

Have you checked the pump to insure nothing is in there causing the noise, or do you believe it is coming from the main wash basket ?

I would rule out anything being in the pump first ( you can gain access in the lower right hand corner in the front by removing the pump insert/filter, you may need to drop down the small door in the toe panel at the bottom ) before declaring the main bearings or motor brushes being worn which can sound pretty loud, but usually just in the spin cycle.

Let me know what you find out.

good luck

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

Buzzer mounted to back of control panel.


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.

I would like to shut off buzzer in dryer please do not answer if there is a charge

If you are trying to shut off the buzzer because it sounds constantly, there is a problem with the dryer timer motor, and that is an entirely different problem.

However, if you are like me and find it really annoying and loud - and are trying to disable/remove it this is how to do so:

Tools: #2 Phillips head, 8-10" long
#2 Phillips head, 3" long
Optional but recommended: Vacuum cleaner with flex hose. (Unless your dryer is new or you maintain regularly, it is full of lint that is a potential fire hazard - this is a great opportunity to clean it out)
Optional but recommended: Duct tape, the metallic sealing kind, not the elastic adhesive tape



Note 1: As you start removing panels, it would be a good idea to clean as you go, otherwise you will have a big dusty mess...

Note 2: As you remove the panels either screw the screws back in to where to took them out of, or screw them into the holes of the panels you are removing, they can get mixed up or forgotten easily...

2. Remove the 2 screws that hold the cover from the underside of the dryer tumbler (above the lid for the washing machine)

3. Remove the 7 screws for the tin sheet that covers the blower/tumbler motor

4. Remove the 2 screws for the front control panel with all the knobs for the washer/dryer

5. The panel can be lowered out slots on each end by applying some pressure inwards, then down. Mine was a little more difficult to remove because of all the lint/**** built up so I used a screw driver for a little prying action. If you try this, pry on a side the that is not exposed in case you cause any dents, scratches, etc... for aesthetic reasons.

6. Once you have the panel down, vacuum this area very well, there are exposed contacts and terminals here that will be a source of ignition if a contactor goes bad and there is a lot of lint build up.

7. On the left side where the dryer controls are, there is is a little black rentangular box with two wires going into it - mine was between the dryer cycle knob and the start knob. It is the only component on the backside of the panel that will not have a corresponding knob on the front of the panel. Remove the screw that is holding it in place, and pull it up at an angle to clear a metal clip that holds it in on the side opposite the screw.

8. Once you have the buzzer free, follow each wire from the buzzer to its termination point on the dryer cycle controller. The buzzer should have black a wire going to the "common terminals" labeled either B or C, the other black wire is for the switch terminal of the dryer cycle controller. There should be "female" connectors on the wires from the buzzer, connected to the "male" terminals of the dryer cycle controller.

9. Remove these female connectors, which will disconnect the buzzer from the dryer. Be sure that you do not accidentally pull off an incorrect wire - and if you do, make sure to reconnect it before removing any other wires to avoid confusion as to what goes where.

At this point, get a flash light and take a look around the inner dryer housing. With your vacuum - if you have a brush attachment, use it - clean out all the built up lint from everything you can reach, especially around electrical connections, wires, the dryer motor windings, etc... Take your time, do it right - you spent the time taking the thing apart, it will not kill you (and actually may save your life) to spend 15 minutes cleaning the inside of your dryer.
If you have some duct tape, tape the blower exhaust connections from the plastic blower housing to the metallic duct and the flexible duct. I also taped the plastic piece that the lint screen inside the dryer door sits in because the foam rubber stripping had come apart. There areas are the main places that lint escapes into the inner parts of your dryer.

10. When you are done cleaning, reassemble the dryer in the reverse order you took it apart in.

11. Once reassembled, plug the unit back into the wall.

12. Turn the dryer control knob to as close to the end of a cycle as you can, turn the start knob to start the dryer. If the dryer starts, then stops at the end of the cycle without a buzzer - you were successful.

Whirlpool Thin Twin

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.

End dry horn from dryer

On this unit, there is no way to disable the buzzer. If you are mechanically apt, you can "follow the sound" of the buzzer and disassemble the area to gain access. Unless it's soldered to a PC Board, you might be able to simply cut the wires to the buzzer (with the unit unplugged of course). I'd cut it in such a fashion that if for any reason you decided to reconnect these wires you would have enough room to strip the mating ends and refasten with a wire nut.

If you go this route, be sure to cap off all ends of any cut wires. Also know that if this is a new unit, the warantee will most likely be voided out by performing this task. This is a well known complaint about this product.

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 :)
Hopefully this makes things easier on someone...
