A bell in your dream can be a warning, a signal or something calling for your attention. It might also be a summons, depending on its context in the dream.
A bell such as that in a church might indicate rejoicing; it might be a signal that someone has died, or suggestion of a wedding, or simply a practice of bell ringing.
Occasionally in some dreams it is a reference to breasts which swing like bells. See Like Bells.

Doorbell: Something new coming into your life – negative or positive depending on dream; hoping for contact with someone.
The Final Bell: This suggests the last chance to do whatever the dream indicates. It is worth attending to it.

Ringing bell: If it is a door bell you are pressing then you are trying to get someone’s attention or trying to experience what is behind the door - all of our fears, the devil, the angels. All that we place behind the door within ourselves. And they are only available to us if we walk through the door.
If you are in the house and hear the door bell ring, it suggest an opportunity; the unexpected; new experience or relationship.
