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.

HI 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.

SOURCE: Hoover nextra mega load 7.5kg

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.

SOURCE: Dryer tripping RCD

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.

Beko condensing dryer Model DRCS68. Hi, my dryer is tripping my electrics as soon as I turn the power on at the fuse spur. Any help on what else could be faulty that is tripping my electrics?


Are your fuses the proper size to run that dryer? A person I know put twenty amp fuses and could not understand why they kept blowing. I am not sure but I think it takes thirty amp fuses.. That's what we put in hers.
Are you sure its wired properly when you replaced the element.
Could be a short some place as well.

Condensed dryer keeps tripping out my electric when I turn it on


Disconnect from mains. Remove rear panel and water will probably come out. This water is being flung by the fan onto the heater hence tripping the electric.
cause of water being here is a blockage in the condenser stopping flow into water chamber or possibly but unlikely, failure of the pump

Hoover Tumble Dryer trips out


Hi


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.


Thanks
Rylee

Hoover six tumble dryer runs for about 15 minutes then trips the electrics, condenser has been cleaned and water container is always emptied


usual cause is water being thrown by the fan onto the heater. after this has happened, remove cover over heater and see if water is present.
the water is there because the water path from condensor box to pump housing is blocked with lint
