Frigidaire Dishwasher

6 posts in this topic

This may be a really silly question for all of you "experts" out there, but i thought I'd give it a try. 

I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher that is about a year and a half old.  The heating element came out of the brackets and burnt a hold in the inner tub causing water to run all over the floor. 

Is there a way possible to patch this hole with some something, or at least in the alternative replace only the inner tub of the dishwasher.  I dont want to replace the whole dishwasher as it was an expensive model and it works fine other than that. 

Any help or direction you could give me would be very much appreciated.

I have successfully patched a plastic tub in a dishwasher before using the same stuff used to make some canoes:  fiberglass and epoxy. 

That was two years ago, no callbacks.  :samurai:

Here's something that works just as good and lots less prep work, will even dry under water.

It's "Epoxy Bar putty", One pound, two half pounds chunks, mix equal amounts of each, just like playdough.

I've used it to patch plastic dishwasher tubs that have been melted or chewed by mice, washer tubs, excellent for repairing cracked refrig door liners and just about anything else you can think of.

It can be obtained from RepairClinic, but it's a Special order now. CLICK HERE $18.00 a little bit goes a long ways.
