Bottom panel on dishwasher fell

The bottom panel of the dishwasher fell off. I have super-glued it bac on over and over again, but it won't stay.
What else can I do to make it stay put? The dishwasher runs fine. The bottom panel just won't stay attached t the dishwasher.
Thanks for any advice

Without even asking what make and type of dishwasher. Normally the bottom should removable with screws to access the wiring, water supply etc.
So unlikely any glue is going to be much of a fix.

You might try some RTV caulk/adhesive. It'll be more likely to stand up to moisture and vibration than superglue. Plus if you don't overdo it, it'll be removable should you ever need to get it back off again.

(usually bluish-black) sheet metal clips or preformed spring metal nuts. It may be that these clips/nuts have dropped off, got weak by losing their spring 'temper', or rusted and there is now nothing for the panel to screw or clip into???? A good repair-person and or capable do-it-yourselfer could probably fix it properly in 20 to 30 minutes; but would most likely have to inspect it first to see what the problem is. It would be best to still have the panel removable (in most cases) in order to 'get at' the wiring and machinery.
