|In response to Re: water coming out of washer drain when garbage disposal on|
: My kitchen sink drain is connected to the laundry room drain. There is a small sink in the laundry room, in addition to a PVC pipe outlet for the washing machine.
: Last night, I was using the washing machine and also washing some dishes in the kitchen sink. I noticed that there is about an inch of standing water in the laundry room sink. When I turned on the garbage disposal in the kitchen sink, nasty water shot out of the PVC pipe outlet.
: Why did this happen? How do I fix the problem?
You have a clog in the line somewhere. Do not use chemical drain cleaners. You need to auger this line. It is clogged somewhere beyond where the washing machine line joins.
