: : Do you have any advice on unclogging a washing machine drain? I have tried almost everything from chemical solutions to a drain auger(snake).

: : Thanks for the advice.

: PTN, If you could tell me the type of pipe you have for your washer ex..cast iron,copper,or pvc pipe. the age has a lot to do with it also. and the installation has a lot to do with how you clean this line. I would call a licenced master plumber and have him look it over and tell you what should be done. you may need more than a simple drain cleaning job. Dale Peck LMP


Dale, base on looking at the pipe from above, it is PVC. The house is at least 30 years old. I talk to my father, and he said try snaking it from the attic down. What do you think about that?
