Washing machine outlet box

There's a strip/liner in the opening of my washing machine outlet box that has broke/come off. Does anyone know what it is? Do I need to replace it? Or what's the best way to glue/attach it back? Thanks in advance.

Hi jyjy99,

 

It looks like it’s a strip of vinyl base molding repurposed as a liner for the box. The best solution would be to use some latex caulk to reattach the liner.

 

The caulk has a low odor unlike some glues and will also seal the opening. Just apply the caulk on the inside edge and the center of the vinyl and tape the liner in place until the caulk sets up.

 

I have included a link below

 

Mike,
