Yopur gonna have to open the dryer up and check each wire to make sure that a wires isnt grounding itself out maybe to the frame or to another wire. Make sure you unplug this first before you start working on it.

Relist: Inaccurate answer. I just bought this dryer, and it did this with my last dryer as well, and I know for a fact that the dryer isn't grounding itself out. Would I need to by a new switch, a stonger one?

Do you have a volt meter. To test the outlet? Is this the only appliance on the line?
