Could be the heating element is heating up, sagging, touching the case and blowing the breaker. Remove the heater and check for tell tale scorch marks.

Could be that the breaker is toast. Only true way to tell is with a clamp on ammeter so you can monitor the current going to the machine.

Heating element seemed to be OK, no burnt Marks or unusual coloring and the breaker checked out OK. Did I mention before that when the dryer runs the breaker heats up almost to hot to touch. Any more thoughts on the matter if so I am up for suggestions.

Sounds like a bad connection at the breaker
