Is there a holding bracket on the washing machine? I have removed the lid and can see a concrete block but would not be able to remove it. I have bought the machine in Spain and have no instruction...

The concrete blocks are vibration dampers and must remain on the machine or it will go flying all over the house. Some machines come with restraining brackets fitted for transportation and these have to be removed before use. If the drum of the machine is relatively free on its suspension it means that the brackets have been removed already, if not, then look for brackets attaching the bottom of the drum to the frame of the machine.

2 of the bolt on the power steering pump bracket sheared off, and the third one is reamed out oversize. Is this bracket a part of the engine block casting, or is it a seperate part that I can unbolt and...

I don't quite understand what sheared off, but all brackets come off the engine. If your bracket is bad, I recommend you get a used one at a wrecking yard. They will have lots of them.
If a bolt is sheared off, did it leave a part behind in the pump? If yes, it will have to be drilled out. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

The agitators in the drum are loose and I need to know how to get to them to tighten?

Those are the drum baffles and the top cover needs to be lifted to the rear of the dryer to access the outside of the drum, but you have to remove the front panel first. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Open the dryer door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly. Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

The top cover is held on each side of the cabinet by two hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top cover lip.

Open the door then lift the front of the top cover and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer. Reinstall the top cover and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.

Inside of drum baffles coming loose on maytag neptune dryer


Remove the door and the plastic pieces on the opposite side. Take the front panel off. There will be one metal bracket on each side holding the top panel down. Remove those brackets and lift the top. Turn the drum where the loose baffle is up top and tighten loose screws or replace missing ones.

Wf860 about to explode!

there is no magic to the counterweight supports. if they are damaged, you will have to replace the tub and it is not a worthwhile repair. it is quite a common problem

Vibration problems

it could be a number of problems which are very common on the entire wma range.
1, drum bearings are really poor in these.
2, concrete block tapping, sometimes the bracket n the drums snap.
3, motor bracket snapped causing tapping.

i've found the plastic drums seem to be quite weak on the wma range to be honest so will more than likely be one of the above.

hope this helps

Suspension pads? where are they do you have a good diagram?

most suspensions on machines use 2 springs on top of the drum and 2 suspension legs on the bottom. ( similar to a car shock absorber) just make sure the bottom concrete counter weight is not loose , this will cause violent a shake
