Is your washing machine draining slowly? Is your washing machine not draining all the way? Is your washing machine drain pipe overflowing and causing water damage and flooding? Have you noticed water building up in the kitchen sink or garbage disposal? If so, you are having problems with washing machine stoppage, something the Charlotte plumbing experts at ER Services can definitely fix for you.
How To Determine What Is Causing The Washing Machine Stoppage
Check out the following symptoms and possible solutions:
Localized Washing Machine Stoppage
Is water coming over the standpipe when the machine is on the spin cycle? If you try to solve this yourself, you’ll have to move the washing machine, access the standpipe, disconnect the hot and cold water supply lines, and see if the clean out plug is deteriorating with age. Oftentimes the lines, pipes, or clean out plug can become clogged or corroded with age. Test the hoses to see if they are cracking or about to go, and consider replacing them.
You’ll have to figure out if the clog is something you can reach and unclog or if you’ll need professional plumbing equipment to solve the problem. In most cases, you’ll want to hire a plumber to handle this as the causes for the clog can vary and the heavy lifting can be intimidating. While you could try snaking the line, you'll often find the blockage is difficult to break up without professional jetting equipment.
Mainline Sewer Stoppage
If you see water collecting in other spots of the house (related to the washing machine operation), you probably have a mainline sewer stoppage. This can show up in the bathtub, shower, kitchen sink, or a lower floor sink. You’ll need to get a plumber out to check your mainline sewer lines to solve this problem.
