Maytag Top Loading Washer MAV6000AWN - I noticed that upon reaching the final spin cycle, the washer sounds like it labors to start spinning. After a short period of time it gets up to speed, spins, and pumps normally...then the spin cycle is interrupted when it trips the circuit breaker in my electric panel. I humbly seek your advice.

Could be the motor starting to fail.. I would look under the washer take off the belt and turn the transmission to release the brake and you should be able to make it spin very easy.. Could be belt worn if it is shinny and as it wears belt gets smaller.. Make a vid post it on youtube far easier to diagnose when we see and hear it..
