Question about Dryers
This sounds more like two faults,, a motor fault and a bearing fault
if the bearings on the dryer drum have worn out and the drum is draging the sides of the dryer the poor old motor is working its hart out trying to turn the drum this is putting a lot of load on the motor and the motor is pulling a lot more amps to do the work,, this trips the trip in the fusebox good job too or the motor would catch fire! ,,,yes i did say "catch fire!!!" to test the drum bearings,
open the dryer door and see if you can lift the drum up if you can the bearings have worn out,,there should only be a small amount of lift in the drum
as for the motor,,,its had it now? its been cooked!
