Dryer tripping rcd beko
Hi The most common cause for this kind of fault on these dryers is the heater. As it fails to earth and causes it to trip the electrics out. What you need to do is remove the buldge cover on the back of the dryer and there you will see the heater unit.There you will see the wiring block going into the back of the dryer.From there you need to release the clip holding the block to the back panel.Then disconnect the wiring and then insulate the wires and turn it back on.Then from there see if it stops the tripping. If it does then the heater is the cause and will need to be replaced. Check that first and see how it goes as most of the time the heater is the cause for this. Let me know how it goes. Regards

What does bulge cover look like
Its the metal cover that's screwed onto the back panel.If you just look on the back panel of the dryer you will see another metal panel on there held on with a load of screws. That's the panel you need to remove to access the heater.

Beko 8230 condenser dryer
Ok if you had water in the panel then this will have sprayed onto the heater. What you need to do is get a hairdryer and aim it at the heater and fully dry it as the water can cause it to trip.Heat the heater up with the hairdyer on the coils for a good few minutes and then just turn it back on and see what happens from there.
