This is often because water has got into the fan area and is being thrown up on the heater by the fan.
take heater cover off and dry off.
take condensor out. in the space at the back, you will find a hole where condensate runs into pump chamber. this hole maybe blocked.
otherwise, check operation of pump

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.

Our miele condenser dryer with the miele washing machine will often trip the whole house's electricity. Sometimes it will trip on the house circuit board. while other times it trips the external trip...

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

White Knight condenser dryer trips the electirc

Hi i bought my dryer 4 years ago and within three months i had a technician to it3 three times, it had the same problem as yours all my fuses were tripping in the fuse box. eventually after 4 visits, the technician said there was a tiny hole in the back of the dryer which was letting condensation through and was dripping onto the motor. he put a small piece of rubber in the hole to make a stopper and it hasn't done it since. seems like a common problem but unfortunately only very few technicians seem to know how to solve the problem, thankfully it was still under guarantee at the time so got repaired, hope this helps and good look!!

Hotpoint aquarius tdc32 condenser dryer keeps cutting/tripping out after 5 minutes usage. Press the start button immediately after and won't start. Have to give it 10 minutes or so before starts up....


It may be necessary to clean the condenser unit/module (heat exchanger). Often lint would accumulate reducing the efficiency of the condenser causing the temperature internally to rise above specs. Thermal cutoff senses and trips the unit.

In some instances, it could be the thermal sensor/thermostat. I think your particular model has two of them. To gain access inside, it would be required to remove 2~3 panelings. A continuity tester is needed to check the thermostats.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Condenser dryer cutting out


There is typically a thermal heat sensor AND a thermal trip. I suspect the heat sensor is fluffed up too...
