Thanks! How do I get to it? Lots of parts in the way. There's a blue and yellow wire that may be running to it (which I have acces to) and I could cut one and tape it up but not sure it's the right wire.

Ok... So the buzzer is off but now the dryer won't turn off... It just keeps running
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

That should have nothing to do with the unit turning off at all, put it back on and see but it should not.
