My wife found the head of a bolt in the drum of our washing machine a couple of days ago, and today I found its origin. The bolt-head had broken off from the hub holding the washer's drum to the center spindle, and that had allowed the drum to spin out-of-true and rub a hole in the outer tub.
How would you repair this hole? The tub appears to be PVC. I have welded PVC with heat and a filler rod in the past, but that would be difficult to do down inside this tub, and I do not plan on pulling the tub from the machine in order to be able to turn it over.
I mentioned epoxy to a local appliance repairman, but then he mentioned JB Weld (trademarked).
What might anyone here have to suggest?
