The Whirlpool Duet Dryer, model GEW9250, was released for residential use in 2005. The dryer was designed with audible alerts to inform the user when drying cycles are completed or to indicate that the control pad is locked. Your response to an audible alert should depending on the type of cycle chosen or the items in the dryer when the alert is sounded. Alternatively, turn off the alerts so the dryer no longer beeps.


Step 1

Open the dryer door and rearrange the contents when using the "Bulky Items" cycle. The "Bulky Items" cycle is useful when your load of laundry contains larger items, such as sheets or blankets. Rearranging the load when the dryer beeps during this cycle aids the drying process.

Step 2

Press the "End of Cycle" button on the right side of the control panel until the LED light appears next to "Off." When set to "Louder" or "Softer," the dryer will make a beeping noise to inform you when each cycle is complete.


Step 3

Turn off the control lock by pressing and holding "End of Cycle" until you hear a single tone. If you attempt to press a button while the control lock is activated, the dryer will make a beeping noise.
