I noticed my washer was leaking water and i took the front cover off and noticed that on the bottom of the outer plastic tub there is a crack would an epoxy cement seal this up .I checked on the replacement of the tub and it is costly.

This is an easy fix using 3M 800 tub sealant adhesive. Or you can use a spiffy product called Slap Stix made for this very purpose. Either way, it’s a pretty easy and reliable repair.

If you need help disassembling your washer to get at the crack in the outer tub, come start a new topic in the Laundry Forum at the Appliantology Academy and we shall reveal that kata to you ==>
