50 Amp circuit breaker issue

366 1
Hi friends I was about to cook on my stove today and on accident locked the oven door instead of hitting the surface unlock button. In my defense the buttons look almost identical and I was on coffee number one lol

Anyway for whatever reason this tripped the breaker and when I turned it on the stove has power but only enough to make the clock work. I plugged the washer/dryer combo into the receptacle to try it and the washer runs but not the dryer. I'm no electrician but I think this is a double pole 25x2 50amp and one side is bad. Would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks much.

You probably need a new breaker
