I Believe my model is Frigidaire GLWS1339ES0 model (very hard to read faded tag- brought in 9/05)- Frigidaire Gallery 13 cycles Commercial Heavy duty super capacity washer. Presently it is leaking water. I first want to remove the agitator i unscrewed the top bolt. I can lift the agitator up a 1 to 2" before the agitator becomes stuck. I pulled up pretty good with no luck. Do I need to line something up or need some one else to help pull it off with out breaking the plastic agitator

You will need to pull up hard on it, or pry it up with a belt or strap pulling it up from the agitator bottom base. Some are a nightmare to get off.

Here's the agitator for your model:

Thanks. I went back at it. I pour some liquid soap down that center hole. Then kept pulling the agitator up then forced it back down. Must have done this 20 plus times. Finally, i got it high enough where the the spindle of the agitator was off the transmission shaft. Then i could rock it back and forth until i got if free. What a mess beneath the agitator. I am determining if I want to replace the tub seals due to a leak or replace the machine.
I will need to sand the outer metal rod (very rough) and then get some WD-40 to spray on the bolts and to remove the corrosion off the metal bolts and bracket. I will let the wd-40 to sit as few minuntes so I can remove the bolts from the bracket without breaking them so I can remove the inner tube (if I can remove the bracket.

Thanks again. I didn't want to break a part that didn't need to be replace at this time.

Good job getting the agitator off. (y)

I have changed many of these same tub seals, when the trunnion is that bad looking there's a good chance the trunnion bolts will break off when you remove them, happened to me many times.

Here's the trunnion for your model:
Trunnion 131545101


Here's the trunnion bolts for your model(It takes 2 trunnion bolts, so even if one breaks, its best to order both):
137539500 Bolt


Here's the lockplate(block) that the 2 trunnion bolts screw into:
137107000 Trunnion Block


Here's the tub seal kit for your model:
Tub Seal 5303279394


Let us know how it goes.
