Question about Dryers
There are a lot of parts to this problem: First don't plug it in again or try to restart it...yet, Make sure before you reset the circuit breaker that you unplug the dryer. So now your home should be fine! The dryer is another story... I have answered this problem for others and with other dryers... Please focus on your washer, there should be very little water that remains in your clothes after the wash cycle and the clothes should Definitely not be dripping. Check to see that your spin cycle is working and if necessary run it through the spin cycle again. You may be overloading the washer. Back to the dryer...NO water should EVER drip from a dryer! If you do not wish to call a service person I would wait about 1 1/2 weeks for the dryer to dry itself and give the dryer another try after that and set it for Air dry only (no heat) if you don't have a problem at that point then stop the dryer and set it for a low heat cycle and try again. I think at that point you should be OK? If you do have problems.. you will have to call in a service person. But please remember clothes should be quite dry coming from the washer before going into the dryer.

Your problem may be associated with heavy accumulations of lint inside the dryer and/or ducting. If you have had a water leak recently, and the dryer ducting got wet, the lint could be sticking somewhere and forming a clog. A simple way you can determine if you have a clog somewhere is to disconnect the dryer vent hose from the dryer and start the dryer. The air leaving the dryer should be forceful and about 140 degrees (in other words...good and warm). If the air is weak and cool, you have a clog somehwere INTERNAL to the dryer. If the air is forceful and warm, check your ducting from the dryer to where it exits the house. A dryer needs proper air flow in order to dry properly. The fact that your dryer is getting very hot tells me that the heating element is heating up, but may in fact, be OVERHEATING. The dryer will not continue to run in this condition. Eventually the heating element or thermal fuse will blow. Take the time to perform these simple steps and post back with your results and/or comments. If it is not a simple clog, I can give you further advice on how to determine a cause of your problem.
NOTE: If you plan on cleaning the dryer interior, ensure you unplug the dryer from the power source. Live voltages of 220VAC are still present even with the dryer turned off.

You said, Water collects under Clothes dry on floor.This sounds like a condenser dryer that needs the water retention bottle empdied or the hose to the bottle is leaking.

Normally if you have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes
are dry, it will do it with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing
system. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a "pre-set" temperature.
When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. If there is a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough. The timer advances until the interior cools, then the termostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But... if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix this problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork and make sure the vent is not compressed or kinked. If that doesn't work, then your thermostat, moisture sensor or timer could be the culprit.

It sounds like the fan isn't working properly (assuming all the ducting is clear).
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
