I have a question. Our dishwasher began to leak the other day. As I used to install and remove these when at the apts., I knew it wasn't the water supply line or drain, etc. So I removed the dishwasher and took it outside to inspect it better. Sure enough, I found that the heating element had fell from it's holding brackets and burned a small line (hole) into the rear of the copolymer tub.

Question: Is there any way to repair a copolymer dishwasher tub leak using some kind of adhesive/sealant? I need you to ask some of the people that have done work for you. Thank you in advance

....will have Appliance Epoxy sticks.....

Roughen the hole with sandpaper.....eliminating any sharp edges....reinstall the heater so it still fits after the repair

Mix a small amount of A & B sticks of white epoxy.......Knead the putty to a uniform color and work the epoxy into the hole....

If necessary......Clean-up the area with a small amount of alcohol to smooth the epoxy...allow to harden and then test the unit....
