Question about Dryers
Electric dryer keeps popping circuit breaker
Either the dryer drum motor is getting tight from dry end bearings or the heating element is shorted to the dryer case or check the input terminals where power enters the unit,sometimes these ends burn off from current draw over time

First off, be sure the pigtail is wired correctly to the back of the unit. Black and red to the outside terminals, white to the middle, green to the frame or cabinet (should be a green screw close-by). If that is ok, you probably have an issue with possibly a bad pigtail, bad outlet, wiring issue, or possibly a bad circuit breaker or breaker box. Probably going to be more of a electrical problem than a appliance problem. Good Luck!!!!

You have a ground fault or short . Disconnect dryer and remove small panel that holds the cord. Check if any wires are frayed, loose or touching any other metal objects.
