    epoxy, but its not a glue issue really, more of a clamping issue while glue sets…

    I be more worried about it self combusting than a cracked fascia. You checked to see if its on the recall register?

    Use a bit of mesh too to reinforce it too

    duck tape will sort that

    Definitely not on the recall list so no combusting I hope.

    craigxxl, what’s the mesh you’re talking about reinforcing it with? how would i do that?

    Cosmetically, its going to look a lot worse after the glue has been used. Unless its a structural piece, I’d learn to live with it.

    Loctite 770 primer then loctite 406 to glue it. Pretty instant so no issues with clamping.

    £95 to buy a new fascia panel shown below. Should I glue it instead? What glue is good for this sort of job?

    Assuming you can take it off to get to the back, I’d try araldite, probably bonding some lollysticks as splints across the crack. assuing there’s clearance and its not packed against loads of electrical gubbins when reassembled.

    Or alternatively, plastic weld it back together? I’ve seen motorbike fairings neatly welded back together, again you’ll need to remove it and either have a go (soldering iron?) or take it to a pro.

    My Hotpoint has cracked there too. It was like that when i got it second hand. Ok it’s where you pull open the door but recently I’ve stopped using mine cause of a burning smell. Opening it up revealed a burnt live feed connector right where the crack is so I wonder if it’s connected.

    epoxy might struggle to glue that due to the surface energy. I’d look for a primer and glue as above. Don’t use too much and figure out a way to clamp it together for the bonding period before you start and it should look okay.

    soldering iron to weld the plastic together and run it over with a hot glue gun and mesh – done it dozens of times…

    From the back obviously … 🙄

    Mitre mate!… Spray curing spray first,then once that dries apply the resin to the crack… Hold together for 10 seconds….! Job done!!.. Get it in good hardware stores or interweb!… You will thank me for this….

    If it was me I’d rough the reverse side up and apply Araldite with either some aluminum mesh or plasters joint tape to give a bit more strength to the repair to cope with the vibrations from the washing machine.

    What giantx4 said! Mitre fast is ace, fixed loads of things with it.

    The only thing I have found that wouldn’t stick is plastic cable guides to my frame, still looking for that solution.
