Just a thought, I have same experience about this way back 3 years ago, the same scenario as what you have mentioned. I found out that there is a leak on the waste pipe from the washing machine which sets near the junction box. there must be some leak somewhere under kitchen flooring maybe. if it is just the sockets trip and everything turns back on after couple of hours this sounds like trip caused from water leak and when it dries up all will back to normal.
