There isn't much that could have messed up from installing the stack kit. Make sure none of the screws went through any wires inside the dryer's outer shell. Other than that, you'll want to check the power cord itself and the junction block where the power cord plugs into. That is where the power first comes into the dryer and possibly moving the cord around caused it to move out of place, but power really only goes to the terminal block and then to the control board and nowhere else really until you try to start the dryer. So if it's tripping as soon as you plug it in, then power somewhere between the power cord and the control board has to be messed up.

I couldn't say without inspecting but it sounds like your main control board may have shorted then because the power just comes from the power cord, to the terminal block on the back of the dryer, up to the main control board on the left side wall under the top panel of the dryer. You could unplug all the wires from the board except the power wires coming from the terminal block and see if it still trips the breaker and if so, unplug the power wires just to make sure you don't have a power cord issue. If it doesn't trip the breaker anymore, then you need to replace the control board. If it still trips the breaker then you need to follow the wires because something is shorted out between the board and the end of your power cord. You may need a technician because tracking down shorted wires is definitely not an easy process.
ok good luck
If the board was disconnected, then you know it has to do with the power wire. Disconnect the wires from the terminal block from the power cord to make sure the power cord itself isn't shorted internally. If it still trips the breaker then replace the power cord. Otherwise follow the wiring because something between the board and power cord is damaged.
ok good luck. There isn't much more I can do without being there I'm afraid.
Possibly, you'd need to take the dryer apart to see them.
Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open. Is there anything else I can help you with?
Alright well there really isn't much more I can't really say without being there and doing those same checks myself.
