You may want to look at the circuit you are plugging this into. This may be pulling a load that is to much with everything else on the circuit and causing it to trip. Try to plug it into a bathroom circuit which should be rated at 20 amps and be of 12-2 wire and see if it trips that breaker or GFI. Let me know and I can help you from there.

I have a breaker that keeps tripping and when I have my washer that is on a diferent breaker, on and I turn on the 20 amp breaker in question, my washer sounds like I am shooting 220 into it

breaker problems especially ones that are connected to something that causes shocks should be investigated by an accredited electrician immediately and certainly not after months or just left off
Imagine how you will feel if some child unknowingly turns on the equipment and gets shocked
It a 10 amp breaker trips it is because of a problem in the washing machine
If a 20 amp breaker trips and still produces noises in a washing machine I would be pulling the plug on the machine until I had it checked out professionally
As I have said , the wiring in the premises needs to be checked professionally first and then have the machine checked by an accredited service technician
Remember your next shock could be your last

Disconnect the black power wire where it is connected to the furnace with breaker off. Put a wire nut on it and then turn the breaker on. If it continues to trip, the problem is not the furnace and you will have to trace the power wire back to the breaker box to find problem. Next, disconnect the black wire from the breaker (with breaker off) and then snap breaker on. If it trips, bad breaker. If the furnace was disconnected and breaker did not trip, you have a short either on the P C Board or the transformer.

We set our wall oven for self-clean and received an error message after about 4 hours that told us to turn off the circuit breaker. We are unable to turn the circuit breaker back on again.

If you cannot turn the breaker back on then it is no good...some breakers do take some very firm effort to get them to come on...but the oven may have ruined the circuit breaker...

It wount turn on it keeps on switching off how can i deeal with this

Take the wire of the breaker, try turning it on, if it still won't turn on the breaker is bad. But if it works without the wire on it you have an issue with the wiring. BE CAREFULL!!!

The hottub keeps kicking the circuit breaker off.

Either the breaker is bad or you have an electrical problem. Unless you know how to work with electrical problems call for service. If you unplug the hot tub and plug a lamp or hair dryer into the outlet does the breaker trip? If yes, call an electrician. If the outlet is fine call for service on the hot tub.
