Well 1000 amp stuff is out of my league, but I would guess it is possible the main circuit board might have sensing ability to detect a wiring problem. Perhaps the 3 phase polarity is wrong, the 4th ground pole is not making good contact, or something. With that much amperage, it could be the main needs more grounding rods spread further apart, and make sure you run an explicit ground wire between pump and main. Don't rely on ground rod at pump. Too many people get electrocuted that way.

The circuit breaker may be tripping because of a fault with the dryer or it may be a fault with the circuit breaker being weak.
From the description you give the circuit breakers trip frequently.
I'd suggest you first try selecting the no heat air fluff cycle and run it to see if the breaker trips. If the circuit breaker doesn't trip in air fluff then there is likely a short in the heating element.
With a clamp-on amp meter you can read the amp draw of the dryer when it is heating. With the motor and element both working you would see approximately 25-26 amperes being drawn. The breaker is rated at 30 amps. If the breaker trips and only 26 amps are being drawn then the breaker is the problem.
Try the air fluff cycle first and see if the breaker will trip. Then with additional details I may be able to help you further.
