0 Reviews

If you don’t do your laundry, you can never empathise with how debilitating it can be to encounter a blockage in your washing machine drain.

A blocked washing machine drain is a pain in the neck, just as the pile of dirty clothing mounts up.

Sometimes, poor installations can cause washing machine blockages. At other times, it is because of malfunctioning pipes. The common causes are excess lint, a build-up of slimy, bacterial sludge, dirt, laundry soap scums, textile fibre, and gunk accumulated throughout your laundry’s usage can cause your blocked washing machine to drain.

Whatever the reason for your blocked washing machine drains, you should be well-prepared to combat the problem when there is a blockage. Remember that neglecting blocked laundry sinks and laundry machine clogs will only add to your troubles, such as blocked sewer lines or clogged drains in Sydney.

Your Problem

There can be many reasons for a blocked laundry drain. Unwanted materials can cause clogs in your drain hose, laundry sink drain, drain pipe, and laundry drains over time. The longer the clog stays, the more difficult it will be to remove it. It may even clog your sewer pipes.

Laundry soap residue and detergents can be detrimental to your plumbing system. If you don’t remove the extra detergent from the pipes and the machine drain, they’ll eventually rust, resulting in your blocked laundry drain.

Even hair follicles can be among the primary elements contributing to clogging in some situations. When not removed properly, they tend to form big balls, causing considerable hindrance to the pipeline. As a result, you might even witness backflow, where the water travels back up the pipe and overflows into your bathroom.

From the start, ensure only professional plumbers install your laundry system. This can also determine how your laundry is firmly and solidly built. Also, go for periodic maintenance to lengthen your laundry system’s lifespan.

If You Want To Do-It-Yourself Your Blocked Laundry

If you want to perform the blocked drain pipes clearing process yourself, you can try to fill your laundry sink with water and let it drain to test if you’re dealing with a partial or a full clog.

Your sink may drain quickly at first and then slow down or stop draining.

There’s a chance you can fix the issue and help the water drain away using a plunger or drain snake over the drain to remove the blockage.

If you fill your washing machine with water and run it on the spin/drain cycle, watch the floor drain when the machine is draining.

If the clog spills over immediately or quickly or if you suddenly see it overflowing where the discharge hose meets the wall, it isn’t lodged too deep. Therefore, you can easily pick up on the blockage.

If it takes longer for the water to back up and spill over, the blockage is likely further down the drain line. You can clear it with hot water, a chemical drain cleaner, a plumber snake, or a more heavy-duty drain auger.

Using a Chemical Drain Cleaner

Although using a chemical drain cleaner in your washing machine clogs and blocks drain isn’t advisable considering its harmful chemical components, it is better to use it right if you want to use it rather than using baking soda and boiling water.

Select a non-corrosive chemical drain cleaner and thoroughly read the instructions. Don’t forget to wear latex or protective gloves and eyewear.

Unplug your washing machine and move it out of the way without disorganising the hoses at the back.

You can remove the flexible drainage hose from the drainpipe, usually in the middle of the hoses where your machine connects to your water supply. Then, pour the drain cleaner directly into the drain.

After letting it sit for the recommended time, follow up with a hot water rinse.

If you’ve tried hot water, chemical drain cleaners, a plumber’s snake, and a power auger with no success, it’s time to call your trusted blocked drain plumber. You could be dealing with a clogged main line. Or the blockage may be beyond your reach and will require professional tools. It may also be faulty or worn-out plumbing parts. Or it could be a more complex plumbing concern beyond the scope of your laundry drain.

D.I.Y. is an option, but it may not be the best choice. While it can temporarily fix your problem, it can also be counterproductive in the longer term. If you are looking for a permanent solution, it is best to get help from professionals.
