Leaking Washing Machine Plastic Tub


Recommended Posts

hello,

I've got a hairline crack in my washing machines tub and was wondering if it would be possible to use a heat gun of some sort to melt the plastic together. the crack is about 3cm long and is dripping about three cups of water per cycle.

Thanks.

Hello. In the past I've used a soldering iron to weld small cracks in plastic outer tubs. I wouldn't recommend using a heat gun, but the soldering iron was perfect.
