What to do about a scratched laundry tub?
posted by clarkstonian to home & garden (11 answers total)
Our washing machine is 13 years old. Not worth the cost of repair. It works fine except...somewhere on the bottom of the tub, there's a scratch. If I wash a load of laundry and forget to hang it up within, say, 10 minutes, something - ususally the lightest colored or most favorite - gets a rust stain on it and is ruined. I've run my fingers over the enamel surface, I've used a flashlight. I can't find the nick or scratch. It's probably pretty small. Does anyone have any other suggestions for how to find it and how to fix it if I do?
I hate to trash the machine for a scratch, but I've ruined a machine's worth of clothes at this point. Thanks for your help!
