HiCustomer

Thank you for using Just Answer.

I would actually suspect the outlet first.

Try the washer on another outlet and watch the unit. If it blows the circuit breaker, then you have a short that manifests itself late in the cycle. I haven't seen that before.

i have tried different outlets - same result - sometimes the washer will go through every cycle and complete the load and then do it on the second load or third almost like something is overheating

HiCustomer

That's good information.

So, you're problem is likely the pump motor. A water inlet valve let's the water in. The pump doesn't come on until just before the rinse to remove the soapy water. You have a short and/or bad pump that is pulling too much voltage causing a breaker to fliip.

I should have asked for a model number. Please send me a model number and I'll get you more info on how to do the repair.
