How come  
the dryer has an end-of-cycle buzzer but the washing machine doesn't?

Possibly because if the clothes sit for an hour or two after the wash cycle ends, no problem, but if they do the same in the dryer, you end up with wrinkly clothes.

My current washing machine (new about 4 years ago) does. Fortunately, it's also got a volume option, including "off".

Hm. Our machines are about 15 years old (we bought the house shortly after I started working at UT, and I've been at UT 16 years). Maybe someday they will cease to function and we can replace them.

This assumes that you're not washing homemade tie-dye stuff. High-quality tie-dyes have the potential to bleed slightly for a surprising number of wash cycles, and if you leave them sitting wet in the washer, they'll bleed onto whatever is next to them. I've lost a couple of light-colored tops that way, and gained some interestingly-spotted underwear.
