I racked off my trub a little over 2 weeks ago and sealed up my primary immediately afterwards. Is it too late to wash the yeast??

For what yeast costs to begin again and know you are good...... is worth it. I wouldn't try it unless you just want to experiment.

Follow your nose. If it smells of anything but healthy yeast, ditch it.
