Sounds like you have a short or an earth fault.
if it trips right away, try it with the motor disconnected, if it still trips then you will probably have to call an engineer..

The manual says F08 - Heater relay cannot be activated.The dryer might be having difficulty with this.It is not something that can be fixed.Heater Relay equipment might be damaged.Might have to call a repairman to set this right.Good luck.Do post comments for more help.

the usual problem with tripping is the heater of the dryer box has become loose and touching an earth.
if you take the lid off you will see the box on top of the drum.
with the electric off you can look for loose/disconnected wires and wiggle the 2 metal tabs that are the ends of the heater, should not move.
you may be better with an engineer visit if it's not an obvious fault.

take off the back and reset the overheat protection, it should be a little red button , maybe the unit was not reset when installed

Could be mains choke. Mains power comes into mahine via wall socket /worth checking this then onto mains filter/Choke..then to switch..So if no power here check this..wish you well
