Tcl 770 keeps triping power

Check to make sure the breaker is rated for the current draw of the dryer. If it is, you MAY have a bad breaker. Replace your breaker and If the dryer is still tripping the breaker, your dryer needs to be repaired by a qualified technician.... the heating element is probably burned up and shorting out.

My condenser dryer keeps triping electricity

You have a short circuit on the machine and the breaker is trying to save your life.

It could be the elements have gone down or a wire has rubbed through or even a switch has melted

It requires a person with a test meter and some knowledge of the machine to open it up and take a look

My Aquarius washer/dryer keeps shorting out my elerctric??

If you mean it is triping your home circuit then the machine has a dead short, probably due to the brushes in the motor worn down. Not one to be done DIY I'm afraid

My hotpoint ultima keeps triping the trip switch. it had f08 on the screen but now that has gone, but still trips electrics every time i press start.


f08 means heater relay cannot be actived so try unplugging heater element and see if it stops tripping the electrics.
