Question about Vacuums
Have you checked to see that the knob for the signal to ring is still set to "on"? I know I have accidentally pushed my own off & wondered the same thing as you are.
You may also have an excessive problem somewhere. Check your removable lint filter as it may have too much accumulation on it & is making your dryer run longer.
You should remove it after every few cycles and clean it anyway.
If you use dryer sheets in your dryer, you should also, actually wash that filter to remove any remaining residue from the dryer sheet. You won't see it, but you'll know it's there by running clear water over it, and if it doesn't go thru the screen easily, there's your film.
After taking such good care of your filter & lint traps, check your dryer exhaust, all the way out to the outside of your house. Sometimes a lot of lint gets stuck in there also.. It's important to remove this because any lint that's caught in there could easily start a fire.
If you try all of these things and your dryer is still running too long and your not hearing the signal, I would check to see if the signal is operating first.
Set your dryer to stop in 5 minutes, then watch it. If it keeps running & you don't hear the end of cycle bell, check to see if it's set to "on". If it is set to "on" yet not working, you may have to replace the part or call a service person.....Check to see if your timer is broken or not, too. The wheel could be loose & may only need tightening. Or you may need to call a service person.
This will depend on what part needs replacement, or how handy you are.
I hope this helps.
