Top load washer trips circuit breaker.
It's own it's own breaker and it seems to trip when it's doing the spinning and maybe the motor sounds a bit different now? Any idea what it might be?

If you are going to do that, then just swap with another same amp breaker in the panel.

This is a far more logical route to go.

best advice given, Why take risk playing with breakers if the issue is the appliance itself? Given OP noted a sound difference, it is likely the motor, or maybe the transmission? slowly failing. Plug it in another outlet, run the spin cycle and you'll see

This is a great idea. I'll get my outdoor extension cord rated for 15amps (washer only pulls 10amps) and plug it into another dedicated breaker and see if it trips. If it does then it's the machine.
