Alot of times if you call the tub builder they have service guys who will come and fix your tub. most tubs have a 3-8 year warrenty against defects so you could get the fix for free. if not you can always try and get fiberglass resin and mix a batch up and seal the cracks yourself

Frigidaire dishwasher (FDB1100RHC2) is leaking from bottom right corner and it appears there are small hairline cracks on the plastic tub. Is there a way to repair them?

Hello - Do you notice if the dishwasher have deflectors installed in the bottom left and right corners of the tub gasket channel? If so, confirmed that they are properly installed and present. In case that it is not, they may possibly need replacing. However, from what you have described it sounds like the springs or hinges may possibly be damaged, or gasket not sealing properly. I would strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Been there, done that. Does it leak all the time? Does it leak only when you flush? Please clarify this. If the gasket is off centered, it will leak there. The bolts could be leaking, got food coloring to use as a dye? You can do this while watching the bottom of the tank, as you flush. Hairline cracks in the porcelain can be seen, get out yur magnifier and look underneath the tank, as you flush.

My whirlpool washer wtw57esvw1 works but started leaking water out the bottom through out the whole wash cycle. How do i fix it

Without more information, it will be tough to diagnose, but I'll bet your water pump has a small hairline crack in it and water is leaking out from there.It is a very cheap and easy fix if you have any DIY ability, which you must since you are asking for help on the website.

Whirlpool shares parts with several other brands and they are popular, so chances are your local hardware store will have a water pump. Call around, give them the washer number, and they can check their stock. Theyw ill usually give tips on any other tools you may need, though pliers and a screwdriver or wrench might do.

This June, I had to replace my strainer housing on my Hayward Power-Flo Matrix pump. It cracked in cold weather before I remembered to remove it. On installing a replacement, I noticed that the pump showed...

One or more of a couple issues is at play here. First would be the seal replacement. Even if you used the correct seal if you touched the surfaces or failed to install it properly it can and will leak. Second, inspect the housing around the seal fit and the stem of the impeller for cracks. A hairline crack is enough when placed under pump operating pressure to allow a leak. Somewhere in there is your solution.

I have a leaking jet in a pearl jet tub. it's an older model with just two jets installed in 1997 the jet leaks and i don't know how to jet the face plate off the jet, or have a diagram as to get the jet...

If there is a  threaded nut on the back of the jet, undo the nut as much as possible and push the jet out into the tub. Spread aquarium grade silicone around the jet and push back into the hole, put more silicone in front of the nut, you may have to spread it in the small area with your finger or if you can squirt it in from the tube of silicone. If there is no  threaded ring on the backside of the jet, go to the jet in the tub and looking down on the jet, turn it to the right. It should pop and pull out of the housing. There will be a retaining ring that may require a special tool to remove it, once the ring is out, clean it very well, spread silicon on the threads and the lip. Reinstall in the hole, reinstall jet wait 24 hours and fill and test for leaks. Take you time and you will not have to do it over again. Check where the leak is coming from, sometimes there is a hairline crack in the jet assembly, if this is the case, make sure the area is dry then use a 2 part epoxy for plastic (from lowes or home depot) and smear this all over and around the crack, let dry 24 hours, fill and test.

We have a large cultured marble soaker tub with two hairline cracks going out from the drain, 1 about 18'' & 2nd about 24'' resulting in the tub leaking. The Tub is on the 2nd. floor & is sunken...

Hi Garry,

I understand not wanting to cut out the ceiling. Cutting it out is the easy part...Putting it back and making it look good....that's the hard part.
Just a few thoughts: You may be able to apply a coating from your access hole. What comes to mind to me is a 2 part epoxey with a relatively long cure time, to give you time to apply it. This can actually be applied with a small, disposable roller (shur-line makes a small one with a tray, ~$2). I have used this method on projects with success. If additional strength is desired, you can apply fibreglass mesh into the worked area just as you get tacky. Let dry and recoat. This can go as many times as you need to to get adequate coverage.
That was solution #1. Here's another possibility. Since it is a cultured marble tub, you may be able to grind out the cracks, collect the residue, and make a surface patch with resin and ground marble dust. Additional material may come from areas that you can't see, or perhaps you may purchase a damaged piece from a hardware/plumbing supply type store. I'd experiment with this one on some scrap before I went to gluing mama's tub though!
That was #2. One more, and I'll leave you alone. It's possible that you can find a spray coating that will do the trick. Such a coating could be applied laproscopically, via several very small holes in the ceiling, which could be easily repaired after.
Just a few asides While these may fix your immediate problem, be sure to find out why the cracks are showing up. Either the drain was overtightened, the tub was not properly cast, or the drain piping is supporting too much weight. Anything that you can do to spread the load of the weight of the tub, the water and as many kids as you care to put in there will go a long way in preventing the situation from recurring. Well, brother, just some food for thought. Hope that it helps.
Best regards, and good luck! Hopefully a garden tub guru will have a magic bullet they'll share with you!

Washing Machine Emptying

Sure sounds like a hole or crack in the tub.  Unplug power, shut off water, and disconnect the hoses.  Tilt the washer onto its front and look underneath.  Use a light to inspect the tub bottom and sides for a hole or crack. If it is small enough you might be able to plug it with silicone sealant.

Dry the pan completely. Fill pan halfway with water - do not spill any water on the outside. Carefully lift up to view the bottom and see where it is leaking. If it is leaking around the central shaft, this solution will not work. If it is leaking out between the pan and the round drive assembly it is probably leaking near one of the rivets. Or it may be leaking elsewhere from a small crack elsewhere on the bottom (less likely). Mine had a hairline crack near the rounded ridge near one of the rivets. (It came from forcing the pan into the bread maker when the cross pins were not aligned properly. Turn paddle from underneath until it need not be forced.) I covered the crack area with a thin coating of J-B Weld. First, I roughed the area with an old dental tool and cleaned with acetone (Lowes hardware). I used a Q-tip with the end cut off to apply the mixed J-B Weld. J-B Weld is good up to 600 degrees F. Any high temp epoxy would work. I got J-B Weld at a local Advance auto store for about 4-5 dollars. I have made 3 loaves so far. No leak!. A very thin layer of crust sticks to the J-B Weld - not really a problem. Some Teflon paint should fix that.
