My stainless tub dishwasher has a 3 inch crack and leaking. I'm planning on soldering it to fill and weld the crack. I'd like to hear suggenstions as to what type of solder to use for this type of repair (welding crack on stainless).
I also tried silver bearing rosin solder, but wouldn't stick and just ball up (the kind used on circuit boards). I thought my next effort would be to use a butane pen torch ($2 on ebay). However, I'm not quite sure what type of solder would be best for what I'm trying to accomplish.

"Don't Kill an Ant With A Sledge Hammer"
In the past I've used foil tape to help customers who had a DW that wasn't worth fixing but needed time to save up for a new one.
A roll of heavy foil air duct tape used for HVAC and Heating is about seven bucks and two six inch strips of it can seal a three inch crack like you wouldn't believe. But don't use the thin stuff that is really flexible. The heavier stuff is the way to go... and once you get the edges pressed all the way down I don't think you could get it off with a fire hose, let alone the light washing action of a dishwasher.
