Understanding a Dryer's Beeps and Tones

What do the Beeps and Tones mean on my Whirlpool Dryer?

Note that not all models have this type of beeps and tones. See your Owner's Manual for any tones your model may have.

Beeps and tones:

Two types of tones are available for use on some dryers: End Beep and Damp Beep.

End Beep/Cycle Signal:

Use this to turn the signal indicating the end of a drying cycle. Some models also have options to set the end beep to low, medium, high, or off.

NOTE: You may also turn off the sound tones when a feature, setting, or option is touched. Touch and hold the End Beep or Cycle Signal for about three seconds to turn sounds to low, medium, high, or off.

Damp Beep:

Touch to select the Damp Beep signal. You may adjust the signal to low, medium, high, or off. When selected, a series of beeps will sound when the load is damp but not completely dry. This will allow you to remove clothes from the load that you do not want to dry completely.

This option is not available on all cycles. The Damp Beep signal is selected as a default for the Bulky/Sheets cycle as a reminder to reposition bulky loads manually midway through the cycle.
