Check the amp use of your dryer and compare it to the fuses.
If the dryer is taking more amps than your fuse can dish then it will blow. Upgrade your fuse and/or breaker to a higher amp rating.

The dryer timer, located in back of the control panel, controls several things: the drying time of the clothes in the drum, the flow of electricity to the heating element, and the flow of power to the timer motor and the drum motor in the dryer cabinet.
Timers are driven by synchronous motors. Although the contact part of the timer can be cleaned and adjusted on some dryers, this is a job for a professional repair person. Timer motor repairs should also be handled by a professional, but you can replace a faulty timer yourself. Here's how to test and replace a dryer timer:
Step 1: To access the timer, remove the front of the control panel. On some dryers, the timer can be removed without removing the panel. In either case, pull the timer knob off the shaft and slip off the pointer. The pointer is usually keyed to the shaft by two flat surfaces to keep the pointer from slipping when it's turned.
Step 2: Test the timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Turn the timer to the NORMAL DRY setting and disconnect one of the timer power leads. Some timers may have several wires connected to them: The power leads are usually larger than the other wires, and this size difference can be spotted under close examination. Clip one probe of the meter to each timer terminal. If the meter reads zero, the timer is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the timer is faulty and should be replaced. Replace the timer with a new one of the same size and type.
Step 3: To replace the timer, have a helper hold the new timer close to the old one, especially if there are several wires to be changed. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram detailing the proper connections. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for accuracy.

On the rear there is a Heating element hidden under the silver cover, on the top of this unit, there is 2 thermostat's, one is a auto-reset set (On the left) around the 100'c mark and one is a single use thermal trip set at 130'c (on the right, also denoted by a blue spot), the idea is when the heater reaches 100'c is powers off until the air temp drops, once it drops the auto-reset kicks in and forses the heater to power back up, however, in the intrests of safety, if the auto reset fails to power down then the 130'c thermostat will permenently remove power from the heater and will illuminate the filter care light, the only way to restore the power to the heater is to either have an engineer replace the whole heater as Hoover/candy do not sell on the thermal cut out to anyone.
you can usually find the heater unit for £30-40, an engineer may charge upto £140 for the same part and fitting.

Try disconnecting the heater and thermostats.
They are located behind a removeable cover at the rear of the dryer.
If it still trips, then the problem is likely to be more serious.
Hope this helps.
