I don't know about others but I am getting tired of appliances emitting sounds. I got a new fridge 2 weeks ago. It chimes when the doors have been open too long. My oven emits sound that will not turn off until you turn off the noise. My microwave whistles a warning that you have reached the time you set. My dishwasher also beeps. My washing machine beeps to let you know it has finished. It does cease after a few moments. My dryer, thank goodness allows me to set whether or not want I want an alarm when it is through. I find all of these highly annoying. Is there a ay to get it to the mfgs that we'd rather have an option as with my dryer?
