I don't believe that a dryer is supposed to be on a GFI circuit as you can get false trips. I've had my wine cooler trip a gfi circuit that is in perfect working order and fridges are also not on gfi's.

I fixed it, my dryer used to have a 3 wire plug and it was switched to 4 wire plug so it had the neutral tied to ground on the terminal block of the dryer. I disconnected it, put a wire nut on it and wrapped it in electrical tape. The heatstick and dryer work fine now.
