Frigidaire GLWS1349AS1 leaks when agitating

My washer leaks when it starts agitating. I have watched it, and you can see a puddle of water forming from under the left side of the washer just after the agitation starts.

SOURCE: Shoestrings wrapped under agitator

You will have to remove the agitator. Remove the softener dispenser from the top of the agitator and when you look down the agitator, you will see a 10mm stainless steel bolt. You will need to remove this bolt to remove the agitator. If there is no bolt, try pulling the agitator up and out.

SOURCE: Agitator

Your problem is the agitator coupling is stripped. Very common on your washer. Just pull up from the base of the agitator to release it. Lip your fingers under the bottom and work it from side to side while pulling up. The coupling is the brown plastic piece attached to the transmission shaft. Remove the bolt and oring. If that bolt is rusty or oring damaged get a new one with the new coupling. Sometimes the coupler is real stuck on the shaft. Becareful not to damage the transmission shaft or the threads for the bolt to hold the coupler if you use a gear puller.

SOURCE: clothes stuck under the agitator

The clothes do not go under the plate they spin out of the top and fall over the side, this is because socks and underwear are either overloaded or spun out, this can be solved by reducing the load size and also spinning small clothing items on lower speeds, but the solution above is very helpful for getting the clothes out, but you will need a long pair of needle nose pliars to pull the clother out of the bottom of the tub. This problem presented itself by a "LD" error (long drain) Thanks tzweeb and I hope this helps others

SOURCE: need to remove agitator to remove lodged medallion

Remove the agitator top cap, and unscrew the mounting bolt part way. Pull up on the agitator by both sides of the rim, then finish removing the bolt after the device is loose. (Keeps you from smacking your face when the agitator comes loose.) Hope this helps.

Clothes left with grease smears


There are two real possibilities, both are in the washer. The first is
that the gear box seal is failing, and the second is that the fabric
softener dispenser needs to be dismantled and cleaned out.

"When the seal starts to fail, this oil floats up into the wash water
in the form of small black drops. The stains are almost impossible
to remove from clothing. Also, as the oil is leaking up, hot soapy
water is leaking down into the transmission, which will eventually
cause it to fail. As I recall, the seal wasn't difficult to replace,
but to get access to it I basically had to disassemble the whole
machine. The hardest part was pulling the agitator off the shaft - I
used a slide hammer puller. I'd start by pulling the agitator off and
see if you can access the transmission seal that way

Not getting any water?


very strange problem.. there is a unit within the washer that does not allow it to start agitating untill the water is at the level desired. its very clever name is water level indicator valve the valve must be jammed closed there fore the washer thinks the barrel is full of water and goes strait into wash cycle. i would say replace the w/l/i and youl be fine

good luck

I have a 7 year old Frigidaire washer (Model #GLWS1349AS1) and the water drains really slow and the spin starts before all the water is drained and then the washer leaks as water is still in it during spin...


you have a restriction in the drain somewhere or there is something inside the pump housing,chk every line from the tub to pump to drain pipe and hoses for blocks or kinks

Small puddle of water underneath washer when wash cycle was completed.


That could be 1 of a couple things.

1) During the agitate cycle... some water could've made it out of tub.

2) Possible Tub Crack (or overflow line)

3) Check your inlet lines

I would run it again watching it very carefully to determine if any of these are the problem.

SPIN CYCLE WON'T DRAIN WATER FROM TUB IT RUNS ONTO MY FLOOR


Sounds like you have a bad water pump. Remove the hose going into the water pump and coming out of the pump and the pump should pull directly off the shaft check to make sure it spins freely.
