Hi all.
Our tumble dryer is tripping out our fuses.
It's a Miele t294 c
I've unlocked all necessary filters etc.
Replaced the totally worn out brushes...
But still the same tripping.
The dryer works perfectly for apx 30 - 40 minutes... and drys the clothes well but always trips out the rcd around the same time ... every time.
Any suggestions?

Most likely that the heating element is at fault. When it gets to a certain temp then some current leaks to earth. Could be other things though. Insulation resistance testing by a pro engineer could confirm. How old is the drier ?

Thanks for your input.
I'll look into this one further.
This one is apx 9 yrs old
In excellent condition ...
But been stored in a dry garage the last 4.
