Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

Please tell me complete model number of the Dryer

KevinWhiteJA :

and how old is it ?

KevinWhiteJA :

Please let me know after how many seconds/minutes it trips MCB ?

JACUSTOMER-cnesabzd- : It is hot point and about 10-12 years old.It trips with start of dryer.
KevinWhiteJA :

The problem is with either the thermostat located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test it for continuity before replacing....if the thermostat tests fine check for any loose wires...

JACUSTOMER-cnesabzd- : Wdl520 Aquarius.trips when starts
KevinWhiteJA :

OK said with the unit unplugged check the thermostat first...if it tests fine then check the motor...I believe the thermostat is bad and will need replacement
