Question about Frigidaire Gallery GLWS1339EC Top Load Washer
Frigidare Gallery 2 speed top loader, more than 10 years old, fills and drains continously, will not agitate or move from cycle to cycle
It could be multiple problems, if so it's more than one of the below, it would be cheaper to buy a new unit.
Start by removing the front panel and check the belt and idler pulley/tensioner. Look for wear in both and make sure there isn't too much play (it should only move about a 1/2 inch when pushed on it's longest stretch. While you have the front open, inspect the pulley for damage or excessive play.
Another cause could be the transmission (it's just above the pulley). Look for fluid/oil leaks and/or rust. A bad oil leak can cause the transmission to seize up. If you notice rust accumulated on the transmission assembly, you probably have a bad seal. Water could have gotten in there causing it to fail. A damaged transmission needs to be replaced, repair parts are not available.
The cycling problem sounds like a faulty timer. Test it by advancing the dial and make sure the correct cycles are starting/stopping. This part can be replaced with a few simple tools.
As always, make sure you disconnect the power before doing any service.
