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:

There are two types of tones 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 tones that sound when a feature, setting or option is touched. Touch and hold 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 take clothes out of the load that 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 manually reposition bulky loads midway through the cycle.
