Default Maytag Wash Tub With an old Frost Break, Help Please

I decided to dig this out of the corner of the garage and get it running for the first time. Every thing went good until I added water to the tub when I des covered this break where it leaks. Any suggestions on a fix are welcomed. Thanks!

I don't know why I can't get more than one picture to load at a time, also why it's upside down. Bear with me as me and technology don't get along.

I would clean tub very good -down to bare metal, and clean with acetone or similar so epoxy has a good bonding surface. Spatula a thin layer of JB weld or equal on inside, and put a thick layer imbedded with fiberglass cloth on outside. If you use a marson spreader, you should be able to smooth repair so you do not need to sand later. Repair will show.

Tony your picture size is too big. When using your computer to upload photos first right click on the picture and hit edit, then resize, and it should say 100 in the box. type in 50 and save. This is what I have to do when uploading pictures from my I-phone. As for the crack possibly epoxy or jb weld from the inside of the tub then it would not be as noticeable. It appears the agitator must be seized onto the shaft to cause that crack otherwise the ice should have pushed the agitator up instead of cracking the bottom.

I have one with a similar crack, I took it to a REALLY good tig welder and he was able to fix it.

These aren't that rare, I'd suggest looking for a parts machine on craigslist or local ads. It will probably be as cheap or cheaper than a good repair. Unless you just want it for yourself and don't care if a repair can be seen.
Either way, have fun with it.

Grape, I agree I just like the original decals on this tub, I am looking into aquiring a different tub. But I might try fixing it from the inside, probably welding it. I have just never had much luck with jb weld. Thanks everybody for the input!

Turbo, I almost always use our iPad to take and upload pictures. Most of the time I don't have a problem with the inverted pictures but sometimes I do maybe the agitator was struck at one time but I lifted it out fairly easily to inspect the crack from the inside.
I must have overpaid the guy I bought this from. (I think I gave you about $5 for this about 5 or 10 years ago) lol

I would grind out the crack to a V and either get it welded or epoxy it.

Hi Tony,
If you decided to fix it lease, post your results.
My son bought one that was the same way. I'd like to see your handiwork.
Thank You,
Candy
