If water has got into the back of the dryer then it will be located in the heater panel at the back.

Look on the back of the dryer and there you will see the metal buldged cover on the back.

Remove the screws around there and remove the panel.

As you remove that the water will pore out onto the floor.

Inside that panel you will see the heater. You need to use a hairdryer and dry the heater out as if water has got on there it can cause the electrics to trip the RCD out. So dry it out with the hairdryer and then refit the back panel and that should cure the fault from there.

Its quite common on these when you move the dryer without emptying the water. So do the above and that will sort it from there.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.
