Kenmore Series 70 Dryer Buzzer won't stop buzzing - Model 110.96573220

Hello, I've got two questions. 1. I just recently replaced the timer motor but the dryer still won't stop buzzing when it gets to the end of the timed cycle and other cycles. It will only stop buzzing by itself on the automatic high heat cycle. 2. Is there any way to disable the buzzer, lower it's volumn or turn it off? Any solutions that you have will be much appreciated. Thanks! CAB

    I have the SAME problem suave1 however the solution just disables the buzzer? What is the problem causing the buzzer to sound? Is there something else that will fix the problem?

  • the buzzer is located under the control panel. 
  • you can unplug it.
  • unplug the dryer or turn the breaker off first
  • then take out the 2 screws on both sides of the control panel
  • bull it forward toward you and unhook it from the case
  • you should see the buzzer with two wires going to it
  • only need to disconnect one.
  •  just make sure you wrap the bare wire connector with electrical tape to keep it from touching metal.

Sounds like the push to start switch has gone bad. Not to expensive to fix, and pretty easy to do as well. You can remove the rear of the console, remove the push to start switch (lift the tab, then turn to unlock) and replace. Be sure to mark your wires so they go back in the right order. Jim

We have a 80 series elec. dryer, today when the end of cycle buzzer sounded, when door was closed again...buzzer continues to buzz. I can't find a part number, if the end of cycle buzzer needs replacing. ...


Push the timer to a definate off position. Close the door. If it buzzes then more than likely you are getting power from the timer which could mean short in the timer. If you have the model # the parts places can easily find your parts.

Kenmore dryer problem


Good day,
Sounds very much like the motor is going bad. Very slim chance that the timer could cause that problem because of pitted contacts, but that would not explain away the noise when trying to start.
Here's a good tutorial if you want to replace the motor.

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer not heating and not cutting off


I had an identical problem to yours this weekend with my Kenmore dryer. There were 2 problems.

1. Timer was broken. Does not advance to "OFF" position on timed dry, however it still works for auto-dry.

2. Thermal fuse was blown. Upon replacing, dryer heated up normally.

I believe when the timer broke, the dryer had kept running and blew the thermal fuse. On Sears' website, thermal fuse is $5.30, timer is roughly $80.
