Why is my washing machine tripping GFCI outlet?

I have a front load Whirlpool Duet Steam Washer model number WW9750. The drain filter was clogged with two of my infant son's socks. I pulled them out and water came out mostly into towels and pans I had ready. When I plugged the machine back in I'm able to turn the power button on but when I hold the start button to start the machine it trips the GFCI on the outlet. I put a fan in front of the machine to dry anything damp out overnight, but the GFCI is still tripping. Please help. Thank you!
