Dryer tripping the breaker

Dryer tripping the breaker

I have a whirlpool Cabrio dryer. The dryer works great, except that it keeps tripping the breaker with less than 5 minutes left in the cycle. Does not seem to matter if it’s a 40 minute cycle, or 55 minute cycle. Every time it does it, I reset the breaker at the breaker box, press and hold the start/pause button for the 5 seconds to reset the PF (power failure) code and every time there is less than 5 minutes left in the cycle. 2 minutes, 3 minutes, 4 minutes……..What could be causing my dryer to trip the breaker with about the same time remaining……starts as 40, 45, 50, 55, 60 minute cycle…..always does it with under 5 minutes left.
