Is it a fire hazard? I touched the outlet and it is not hot. We used the dryer 5 hours ago. I haven't heard this noise when it's off before

It's not a fire hazard. Will you please send me the model number, so I can search for technical information for you? Thank you.

Is the display showing any error codes?

No. I will have to find the model and get back to you. It is stacked on top of the washer.
Appliance Technician: John, restaurant equipment technician replied 2 years ago

Look for the I.D. label inside the door on the frame panel.
