I have a dishwasher that is 6 years old and has a broken plastic front facia
that holds the start button ad control panel at the top of the door.
Is there any sort of 'sticky tape' that is suitable for holding the facia in
place?, the duct tape i am using keeps coming off. (currently stuck around
the plastic and on to the metal lip of the door.)
A new part from hotpoint is £80 without labour !!!!
Double sided carpet tape might do the trick. No idea what you call it
in the UK. Also, there are thin pieces of foam with sticky stuff on
both sides that is good for holding irregular surfaces together. Both
are pretty much of a "one way trip," and do not come off easily. Also
consider the "putty" type epoxy resins... two parts, thick stuff, mix
up, "trowel" in place.

Alternatively, use one of the GOOPs. I use ShoeGOOP (Shoe GOO over
there) and PlumbersGOOP regularly, and they are the best all-purpose
adhesives I've used yet.

I haven't tried it yet, but I just got a tube of E6000, their
industrial bonding offering. The 3.7oz (110ml) tube was $5.49
delivered (USA) from an eBay vendor.
