Ive recently moved and when i plugged in the dryer in the kitchen the RCD switch tripped. So upon advice I moved the dryer and changed the socket to one closer to the fuse box, and it works, but only on a low setting. As soon as i push the button to dry on high, the RCD blows again. My landlords electrician said it was to do with an earthing problem in the dryer - is this right, or are they pulling a fast one, and trying to get out of some re-wiring?
Many thanks for any replies!!! ;)

Ok, so now Ive tried switching off ALL the appliances in the house, and the dryer comes on (as in, the 'clean filter' light comes on), then as soon as i close the door the RCD trips. Any ideas?
