Question about Frigidaire Gallery GLWS1339EC Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a 10 year old, top load, Frigidaire washing machine. The other night, I put in a load of clothes and went to bed. I awoke a few hours later and found that water was flowing over the top of the washing machine, out of the tub, and it flooded my laundry room. I stopped the water by turning the machine off (pressing in the dial). What would cause this problem? I did notice that the previous load was off balanced a bit and it was shaking the machine a little more than normal... Any help will be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance!!! Kevin D.

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.

SOURCE: frigidaire washing machine top load. troubleshoot

There are levelers at the corners of the unit for levelng - tubs have springs attached to them for righting the tub while working (spinning, agitating) - also if the clothes are evenly distrbuted in tub it will wobble badly during operation.

Leaking is usually from the drain pump especially from the point whwere the hose is attached to the pump

SOURCE: water was overflowing over the top and flooding the laundry room

If it was left in the reset position then it could absolutely pushed the diaphragm in the air switch to a point that the contactor couldn't reach it. Set it on a large load, let it fill and watch it. If it starts to overflow, pull the plug out, if it continues filling, you need a new water valve on the washing machine and if it stops then you need a new level switch

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

I am looking to buy a used Frigidaire GLWS1233AS2 Top Load Washer and GLER331AS2 . They are supposed to be 3 years old. Are they good machines or do they have lots of problems?


Mine is 10 yrs old and I am just now having a problem. Clothes are too damp after last spin cycle. Hopefully, I'll get an answer here soon. Another problem I noticed a few months after I got it, with this model, is the fabric softener dispenser on top of the agitator. You have to remove it every single time and clean it. I added a little water to it before adding fabric softener and thought that would help to stretch the cleaning to maybe once or twice a week. Don't do it! I started to smell mildew and found out why. The agitator shaft that this dispenser sits on was caked with old fabric softener. I just use the blue Downey ball now. The fabric dispenser stinks but I have had 10 yrs of good washing.

My neptune washer will start and run about half a cycle and it acts like it gets stuck and on one cycle and never shuts off. I put a load of clothes in before I went to bed and next morning the machine...


What does half a cycle mean are you in Wash cycle, Spin Cycle? What does the Cycle Status LED indicate?

If you think the wash load is in a spin cycle of the wash cycle or rinse cycle place the machine in Spin Only cycle and see if it will complete.

Sounds like either the water level sensor (called a pressure switch ) is malfunctioning or there is a mechanical problem with the switch meaning that the tube that goes from the switch is
a) Kinked or crushed
b) has a small hole
c) Has become clogged
d) Air dome (where tube goes to on outer tub) is clogged

Spin Option


The problems posted by kim875 and kirsty2 all seem to be the result of faulty signals from the electronic board. This seems to be a real problem with this model machine. I would try to get board replaced under warranty , if at all possible.
