Can you patch it with a fiberglass patch kit? I have no experience, but boats are made of fiberglass :)

Too much risk to patch is what I found out. Possibility of leak would be very bad for me . . . so I bought an LG. It is a better design and higher quality washer then the Kenmore front loader.
They hauled the Kenmore to the boneyard.
