I have a Whirlpool...

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum dryer that beeps/chirps once about every 30 minutes. It has been unplugged for 20 hours but still beeps. How is this possible and how can I fix it?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

We think it is about 5 or 6 years old. WED8200YW0

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Probably. I'm somewhat handy.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

How can it chirp after being unplugged for 24 hours?

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

The dryer can't chirp after being unplugged for 24 hours, it's not possible. The chirping is coming from somewhere else. I would check smoke detectors or something else. It may sound like it's coming from the dryer, but it's not because it's not possible to keep beeping after it's unplugged. These dryers don't have batteries in them.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.

Already removed all smoke detectors from the area. Was sitting beside the dryer last time it chirped. No capacitors?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Even took down my doorbell. Removed everything from around the dryer except an unplugged Cabrio washer.

There are capacitors but they all bleed out within minutes of unplugging the dryer. Again, it can't be coming form your dryer but I'm not sure where it's coming from without being there.
