SOURCE: I have in indesit tumble dryer model

Hiya drodger, i had the same problem with my hotpoint dryer, (same company) if this is a condenser dryer make sure the drawer is collecting the water there is a small hole at the bottom of the drawer if you have a straw poke it in and clean it out, also at the back of the dryer there is a clear plastic pipe and a black one take them both off and clean them, your problem is exactly the same as mine so you will probably have to buy a new heating element (they are a lot cheaper from ebay) they are so easy to fit just 2 clips (i did it and im not dead yet!) hopefully you will then find the dryer will work perfectly, word of advice though clean the collecting drawer out at least once a month.
Hope this helps

sounds to me like a short circuit in the heating coil circuit. One would have to ohm out the coils.

My miele tumbledrier ModelT560C makes a noise and sometimes trips the mains. The condenser is constantly wet with no fluff .


Hi - you may have a faulty condensate pump or something to do with this part of the unit - the heat exchanger or condensor will have a certain water residue which should draw off to the pump. In some rare cases the in efficient air circulation causes similar issues to what you are experiencing.

I am unsure about the noise as details are vague - there must be an electrical problem/fault which is serious enough to trip the circuit breaker "mains" as you commented.,

RCD trips after different period of time


Sounds more like a fault developing as the cable heats up due to poor connections.trip operates about 30Ma ot .03 0f an amp which is a pest but good in its own right.If you referring to one socket then remove that socket and check for any loose burning leads,Check the fusebox again for any of the above, good idea to run an independant earth around 10 mm cable to main box just in case earthing is bad..hope you get on ok.

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.

Thermal Fuse/No Heat- Where is it??


We were drying pillows and the thermal elements tripped. I took the panel off of the back of the dryer. The screwdriver uses a hex head (Lee Valley Tools). There are 3 thermal switches. Pushing the button at the center of each switch resets the unit. Our Miele is now running again which saves me a $200 service call.

have the neutral power connection on that circuit and back to the main house panel and then have the neutral connection checked at the power companies side also, it sounds like you have a high resistance neutral connection somewhere in the circuit and its looking for another return path due to the high resistance on the line to another feed circuit line to make connection

Try checking the house power supply to see if a breaker has tripped or a fuse has blown, it's possible for the dryer to run if one of the two fuses has blown or one of the two breakers has tripped,
  • the dryers power cord could have burned or broken at the dryers termianl block.
  • the heating element could have burned out.
  • the thermal fuse could have blown.
