Police are investigating whether a series of explosives that went off across Melbourne suburbs on Sunday night are linked.

The volatile devices destroyed letter boxes and rubbish bins in James St, Northcote and Maltravers Rd in Ivanhoe between 8:30pm and 9pm.

While one planted inside a washing machine on the back of a ute parked on Kilby Road in East Kew caused serious damage to the vehicle.
