I was excited to get a fancy new washer and dryer and when shopping made sure that I found models that allowed me to turn OFF the cycle signals, because I hate buzzers.  Absolutely. Hate. Buzzers.

Argh! Turns out that on the model I chose, I have to turn off the "cycle signal" EVERY SINGLE TIME I set the stupid washer or dryer.  It resets itself to "on" every time.  And if I change my mind about which cycle type I want to run, when I change to the new cycle type, the cycle signal is set to on.  And the cycle signal is not a cycle signal at all, but just a goshdarned beep that beeps to tell me I've changed the cycle or pushed any of the stupid buttons on the stupid front of the stupid machine.

Please tell me there is some magic key combination to allow me to turn OFF the cycle signal as the default, and turn it ON only when I might want it (like, when I want to be aggravated by computery beepy noises).  Please.  And then tell me how to do it.  Please?

My washer is model no. 417.48102701, and my dryer is model no. 417.88042700.

Ari gato, samurai-sans.

SORRY, You definitely should not have bought such a high tech machine with all the bells and whistles if the bells and whistles bother you.  You should have just got a normal top load machine, not a front load washer.

Sorry, no way to turn these off, shutting the beeping off would involve cutting wires to the control board and I cannot and will not give out information like this that may involve damage to the machine or put your safety at risk.

If you're comfortable opening the control panel of your washer/dryer, you can easily get access to the buzzer and simply clip one of the two wires going to it.

Ok Samurai, why don't you go ahead and talk our apprentice thru this easy one now!!!!!



and see if they can accomplish the task without blowing that $115 controller, I'm sure it's possible but I don't think an ammature is going to want to attemp this one.

Good grief! Do all you guys freak out when you see an electronic board? Like it or not, electronics are here to stay in our trade so you might as well get used to it. C'mon, dudes, we're talking about less than $10 worth of soldering equipment



and $4 solder sucker



Now, you do make a good point that the board is at substantial risk when doing this. But, hey, we're all big boys and girls here so, scormeny, as long you know this going into it, you can decide for yourself whether or not this is something you want to undertake.

For what it's worth, I did this "repair" to a coffee maker that beeped extremely loudly when it was done brewing.  The coffee maker can be programmed to brew automatically (i.e. before waking up) so the coffee is ready to go first thing in the morning.  Since my wakeup time varies, I simply set the coffe maker to brew very early in the morning and the annoying end-of-brew signal had to go.

So I simply disassembled the coffee maker and de-soldered the speaker from the control board.  Voila, no more loud, obnoxious beep!  Very easy fix.
