For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Will not fill with water cold or hot


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# GLWS1339EC, will not fill with cold or hot water. I also see that you have tested the valve, the water pressure, and made sure that there wasn't any blockage in the water hoses. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why your washer will not fill with water. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My Frigidaire Gallery Top Load Washer will not run ANY cold water!


I would replace the cold water inlet valve at the rear of the washer (pull the washer away from the wall), it is easy to do and the part is less than $20.00

My (gallery) front load is making my load dirty after the wash. I noticed that if I wash in cold water is not as bad as when I wash with warm/hot water.


Sounds like deposits or dirt coming from hot water tank or line running to washer.Turn off water supplies to washer and remove the hoses from the back to see if the filters/strainers in each port are dirty.If not add a little CLR to the washer and let it run a cycle.Hope this helps.Wouldnt hurt to check the drain strainer either on the bottom of the wassher if you remove the little access panel, might be something in there making water dirty

I have a frigidaire gallery series front loader washer model gltf2940e it keeps giving error e10 what do i do


E10 means that your cold water is coming in too slow, disconnect the cold water hose and check to see if the screen on your washing machine is clogged. If the screen is clean and the hose has good pressure then you will need to replace the water valve on your machine--- this is the piece that the hoses directly connect to.

Water inlet


Have you checked the little mesh filter that may be in the hose? Sometimes sediment and other debris can build up causing slow filling. Turn the water valve fully off. Remove the hose from the valve and the machine. Check for a mesh screen in both ends of the hose, possibly even in the inlet to the machine. Remove and clean. You could also have a kink in the hose, bad hose (seen this too many times, just swap the hot and cold and see if the problem moves) bad solonoid valve, bad supply valve, etc.
