Two thoughts come to mind;one is that the load is not distributed evenly in the tub, try distributing the load by weight more evenly; two perhaps the feet of the machine are not set for even contact with the floor.The machine should not rock from corner to corner

NOT A 100 PERCENT SURE BUT MOST WASHERS HAVE A PRESSURE SWITCH ON THE TO DETERMINE YOUR SIZE OF LOAD IF THIS SWITCH FAILS IT WILL KEEP THE WATER RUNNING.

Sounds like you either have something in the pump or maybe the belt is slipping on the pulley.

WHEN U SAY THE WATER SWITCH IS GOOD Have u dont a voltage test as well as a OHMS meter reading? As it can test good for ohms and still be bad electronically. the only other thing to check is the water pressure switch but my bet is with the water inlet valve or bad control board issue


Washer fills with water and overflows:

The water pressure level switch is a pressure activated switch that is used to determine the correct water level in the tub. This part is normally located behind the control panel and will have a hose or air dome tube that connects it to the tub. On washers that use an electronic control, this switch may be located at the sump area below the tub. As the water fills in the tub it will compress the air in the tube and push against a diaphragm inside the switch. The switch will control the water inlet valve and turn the valve off at the correct water level. If the tube has a leak, not enough pressure may be created to activate the switch and the washer may overfill. If the switch is defective it may also cause the machine to overfill. To determine if the switch is bad, you should first eliminate the air dome hose as a problem. Look for signs of cracks or worn areas on the hose. Remove the hose and submerge in water. Seal one end and blow air into the other end and look for bubbles. Check for an obstruction in the hose as well. If the air dome hose appears to be ok, then the water level switch may be defective.

You can test it with a meter and with a manual test? ( first locate it in the panel, it has a plastic clear tube hose going into it, remove that tube from its connection, now put another small tube or hose into the slot where it was and have the machine set to wash cycle with water in it. Blow into the other end of the tube.
If the machine starts to wash. the pressure switch is more than likely good
( No wash- then THE DIAPHRAGM IS BAD AND SWITCH HAS TO BE REPLACED).

The other item to check would be your water inlet valve. Check it for continuity with a multi meter it should show Ohms or a closed circuit. To test it when water is overflowing unplug the unit and see if it still overflows or continues to fill. If it stops when unplugged. Then it is not a water inlet problem but an electrical signal problem going to ur water inlet valve. Possibly from the panel or board. You can also do a live volt test to see if it is getting the full 120 current, but be sure to unplug unit before testing as this is a live test.
Also another trick to check the water valve, is to first cut the water off and remove the hoses off the back of the washer. Then one at a time point the hoses inside the washer tub and turn the water back on. If you don't have good water pressure, turn the water back off and remove the strainer that should be in one end of the hose. Inspect the strainer to see if it is stopped up, clean it and reinstall it. Now repeat this test. If you have good water pressure now, reinstall hose and your problem is fixed

By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know the cost to install a timer in your Frigidaire washer, model# GLWS1339EC. Typically, any quotes or prices, would be between you and the technician that comes out to service your appliance. There will probably be a diagnosis fee, as well as a labor fee, plus whatever parts might be needed. Hope this is helpful.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire Gallery washer, model# GLWS1339EC, will not fill with water. First, make sure that the water supply is adequate in area where your washer is located. Secondly, make sure the water supply faucets are completely open. Thirdly, make sure water is not being used elsewhere in the house. The water pressure must be at least 30PSI. Try to avoid running water elsewhere, while the washer is filling. Lastly, make sure the water inlet hoses are not kinked. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Good Morning Ted, thank you for your post!

If your washer is spinning but does not agitate, often it is because your washer cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does your washer make a humming noise? If so, the drainage pump/hose may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, your washer may be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.
