Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect there is either a shorted component or there is water that has gotten into an electrical circuit and is creating the short. Can you see any evidence of a leak?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
No there is no leak, it is working now as a washing machine, so it must be the thermostat on the dryer element. Which points towards the problem being a clogged up fluffy fan.
UK Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 3 years ago
I am not sure how it would cause it to trip with it not even being on. I suspect it will need a disassembly and inspection to get to the bottom of it. I am interested to know what you find.
