The most common reason for this is a Short circuit dryer element.
the best way to find out is to isolate the dryer and try it.
UNPLUG FROM MAINS FIRST... remove lid, you will then see the dryer box. on there is a fan (2 wires) thermistor (little wire plug goes in there) possibly a thermostat with a red or yellow dot in the middle or it could be a thermal fuse which looks like a long yellow thick wire, and finally the element, There are 2 different types of element, what you need to do is disconnect the wires to the element, put insulation tape around the ends of the wires and tuck them out of the way of the metal dryer box.
Put it on a wash cycle, if it does not trip then it is the dryer element.
Please note, with these wires disconnected, you will not be able to do a dry cycle as lights will flash.
Hope this helps..

SOURCE: Hoover Tumble Dryer trips out
Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the issue with the Thermal Fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Whenever this fuse goes bad it'll either trip the circuit breaker or the dryer wont heat. You can also check it for continuity with an ohm meter, no continuity means the fuse is bad and you need to replace it. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Is it an immediate cut off when in the drying mode? That would indicate a short somewhere. If it takes a few seconds, I would check the circuit breaker. If it is smaller than 20 Amps it should be replaced. Also if you have aluminum wiring, it tends to "loosen up" which causes exra heat in the breaker, thereby accelerating cut off. Just tightening the connection takes care of that. Be sure to turn it off!!
