Check to see if this may be caused by a Ground Fault Interrupter. If water has gotten into the electrical system of the machine, this will continue to trip until the fault location has dried out and no longer causing electrical leakage.
If this is a standard breaker that is tripping, this would mean you have a shorted motor causing it to draw excessive current.
The combination breaker/GFI can itself fail; I replaced several of these after only a few years of service.
I had the same problem. Turned out, electronic panel behind the door had spring action malfunctioned because of misplaced spring, which in turn caused panel to not generate a signal which, stopped the whole cycle.
Here is what I did to fix the problem-
1. Open the door
2. Remove the ring behind rubber-cover on the door.
3. Reach out to the inside-right of the door.
4. Remove the panel after removing electric connections.
5. Fix the spring action.
6. Put everything back and start the machine over.
John, it's possible that it could be the basket drive. It sounds more like the clutch assy. Take the agitator off and look at the drive block. The two ears from the basket drive should be tight into the drive block, I will attach a picture of how it should look. If that looks ok, then I would suspect the clutch. They are not hard jobs, either one of them.
Bent pinched or clooged drain hose. Other cause may be the drain filter in the front of the machine. (The small door on the lower left of the machine) With a pan, remove the cap and drain water from the small tube. Then open the larger cap and clean out the lint. This should solve the problem.
