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.

In the middle of drying it stops and makes a noise like the cycle is finished and the cycle is not dry yet. Sometimes the dryer doesn't even go on at all. When pushed on it makes a noise like a horn.


Motor I am sorry to say is going bad. After it cools down you can start again for a short time and then the same thing happens again. A great dryer for the money are your Roper dryers sold at all Lowes. Very good dryer with an even greater price.

Problem with Miele Touchtronic T 9800 Dryer end indicator


You've most likely got a bad control board. You'll have to install a new one which can be a bit expensive but cheaper than a new machine by far. I recommend getting a service tech to replace it for you however if your handy you could replace it yourself. Just get the new control board from an appliance parts store, they should be able to look up which board you need as long as you bring them the model number.

I have constant lint buildup in the exhaust pipe. Why isn't the lint trap catching it?


No lint trap catches ALL the dryer lint. Some small particles of lint are always exhausted through the dryer exhaust along with warm moist air as your clothes dry. In a perfect world, this lint makes it all the way to the end of the dryer exhaust and exits your home. However, if you have any kinks, excessive bends, sags, or excessively long ducting runs, the can create choke points for lint to accumulate. This creates resistance and makes and condensation forms inside the dryer vent. With condensation, comes areas where lint can accumulate. Once the lint accumulates, it begins to collect moisture. As it collects enough moisture, it will act as a sponge and collect more lint until the dryer becomes completely clogged. Left in a clogged state, the dryer begins to overheat and dries less efficiently. You may notice longer dry times or an excessively hot dryer. Eventually the dryer heating circuits will fail. This can also become a fire hazard if the lint becomes so backed up that it begins to collect on, or near, the heating element.

If you have not checked the dryer ventilation any time recently, now may be a good time to do so. I recommend checking it about once per season to ensure it is not obstructed. Make sure you are also using the semi-rigid metal type ducting. It resists crushing, kinking, resists heat better, and resists rodent infestation.

NOTE: Mice are notorious for building nests inside dryers. Give them a warm place with bedding material and they will make it a home.

Make sure the exhaust vent is at least 12 inches off the ground. This will deter mice and others pests (like snakes or birds) from entering the dryer exhaust from the outside. If you place a cover on the vent, make sure it is of the louvered variety. Do not use screens. They will collect lint and clog easily.

An easy test to determine if you have an exhaust problem is to remove the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer. Turn the dryer on and allow it to run. The air leaving the back of the dryer should be forceful and warm. If the air flow is weak, you need to check the dryer interior. If the air flow is normal, reattach hose and run the dryer again. This time, check the exhaust vent where it exits your home. Again, the air flow should be forceful and warm. If not, you have a clog somewhere in the ventilation ducting which will require cleaning.

NOTE: If you are using plactic ducting, get rid of it. It collapses easy, rips and mice will chew right through it.

In addtion, many home owners unknowingly will push the dryer against the wall and crush the hose behind it. This will also clog the vent and make the dryer inefficient. Leave about a 1 foot space behind the dryer for proper ventilation and ensure the vent hose does not get crushed. Semi-rigid hose will prevent this from happening.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I have seen this problem many times. Let me know what you find and if I can be of further assistance. I hope this helps you.

I have a whirlpool GEQ9800LG1 Dryer that takes along time to dry


Does this dryer have an automatic mode? If so, does it dry appropriately in manual (timed) mode?

If the timed mode is working, then the moisture sensor is bad.

Wet clothes take two 'trips' to dry.


UNPLUG THE DRYER THEN PRESS THE MORE TIME , AND THE LESS TIME BUTTONS AND THE POWER BUTTON FOR ABOUT 10 SECONDS. THEN WAIT FOR 3-5 MINUTES THEN PLUG THE DRYER BACK UP . SEE IF THAT WORKS BY THAT RESET.

UN-ending Auto dry cycle


This is caused by the dryer vent being blocked and not allowing the moist air to be removed from the dryer. To confirm this. Dry a load of close in a timed dry setting. Set the time on a specific time and then start the dryer. Wait for about 5 min. See if the timer has moved. If it has then the problem is not the timer. It is the exhaust vent being plugged up somewhere. Moisture how the auto dry setting works. The dryer sences moisture and runs longer to dry your clothes. With the dryer exhaust vent blocked, wet moist air is comming back into the dryer and fooling the sensor into believing the close are not dry and runs for a very long time. It is not uncommon for this problem to cause a dryer to never shut off. Your dryer exhaust vent is plugged up with lint somewhere.

Dryer not drying clothes


Make sure that the flex hose going out from the dryer is not blocked. You should check it from both the back of the dryer and all the way to wear it vents outside. It could also be the thermostat, which is cheaper to replace than buying a new dryer.

Whirlpool dryer wont dry.


LONG dry time is an indication of a clogged or restricted exhaust. Check the exhaust hose in the rear of the machine and make sure it is not crushed or kinked. The vent pipe should be rigid metal not flexible foil or flexible plastic. If everything in rear looks OK, check the outside vent hood for any blockages. If everything checks out, the exhaust system may need cleaning. Cleaning kits are available at most home improvement centers and at this website:http://www.linteater.com.
