Sounds like something is shorted in the unit.

Start at the power cord where it plugs into the wall, following down to where it enters the back of the refrigerator and look for any crimped or smashed places that may indicate the hot has come into contact with the ground (center wire.).

From there, you'll need to have basic trouble shooting skills to determine where the short circuit is. It could be the condenser fan, the evap fan, the compressor, or any number of other things.

    Same troubleshooting procedure, only now it's the motor(s) or any one of the coils/solenoids.

I have a Kenmore model 20802990 washer, it will run for a short while and then stop working, it is almost as if the circuit breaker trips because when I turn the circuit breaker of then back on and switch...

well you right in saying "its triping the braker off" thats what it is doing,,
there is a problem with the washer motor,,its pulling far to many amps so its a fulty motor,,,and it will just keep triping the trip out,,,
its a good job you have trips,,the motor could have gone up in smoke

Our washing machine will kick the breaker after sometimes 2 minutes of washing, other times it will go completely through the cycle. Another time it went 13 minutes and then kicked the breaker. Not sure...

What value breaker are you using?
Its also worth noting whether it is a 'B' type breaker or 'C' type.
For example you should have a breaker that says B6 or C10..
This could be different as Im in the UK but my sockets run from a B32 breaker.. 'B' Rated 32 amperes (amps).
I've noticed that the washing machine is a steam washer, so I'm assuming it has quite a big element inside to create the steam.
Now I'm not sure if this is tripping your breaker because its going over the maximum load for your breaker or if its tripping to to the inrush current.
The letter that goes before the fuse rating of your breaker (B or C) signals what surge the breaker can take when the equipment or machinery is switched on. If the surge is greater than the rated breaker it will trip.
B types are most commonly used in houses but a C rated breaker could be used if it kept tripping from the inrush current (the sudden surge when machinery is switched on or a heating element kicks in).
If you know any electricians I would get their opinion and see what they say, uprated breakers are quite cheap approximatly £5 in the UK.
It could be a few things but it doesn't sound like a fault on your washing machine as it should blow the fuse in the plug first..
I hope that helps
