Your model # is incorrect, if I make it make sense this is a pretty straight forward machine, get it off the model/serial tag inside the door. it'll be 110.xxxxxxxx
If it's under 1 year call for service. If you attempt it yourself you may void warranty. I wouldn't usually do that unless the customer screwed something up badly and I felt future safety was an issue but it is the rule.
If I guessed your model right it only has a single element so if it was shorted to ground usually any heat would trip breaker.

That's an odd one. Quick question:
If you select a high heat setting does it trip the breaker immediately when you start it?
It's a fairly simple unit. Single element. No difference between high and low heat setting from an electrical standpoint.
How old is your house it electrical panel?

It will run about 5-10 minutes. If the load is really full with like towels it kicks even in low heat to. I look up my receipt, it's exactly 1 year and 45 days.

I'm not sure the age of the breaker at all. I've had the house for 12 years and it's a converted old log cabin. the breaker the dryer is on runs very warm. It was a $800 dryer so I can't believe it's gone out already.

If your breaker is getting hot it probably needs to be changed just for safety. Heat means resistance and the breaker should have little to no internal resistance. They are easily changed if you are comfortable doing it. Otherwise call an electrician.
Any internal short in the dryer should trip breaker as soon as it tries to power the element.
