Found an over flow in our bathroom. When we checked the shower. There,me were small particles on the floor of the shower. Now there is sewage smell coming from the shower drain.

The smell might be sewage or just stagnated build up of a mix of things . try to use a plunger to make sure your shower drain is not blocked in any way , to use a plunger correctly you will need to block the drain hole and fill the shower with hot water and remove what you have covered the drain with and start plunging while the water is running down the drain , this gives maximum effect while using your plunger , some material may want to expel out the top of the drain while other material will be forced down and along the waste pipe after you have done this pour a large cup or two full of liquid bleach down the shower drain and see if this clears the problem ,because most sewer systems are independent from the waste water of sinks, showers and washing machines. Also when you flush the toilet try adding a bucket of water at the same time as you press the flusher , this will force more water than usual down your toilet helping to keep the pipes fully open , but if you notice that when you flush and add the bucket into the bowl at the same time that the water does not escape freely and seems to back up , this can be a sign that there may be blockages in the sewer pipes and you might try doing this extra water flush a few ,more time hoping you will clear your pipes adding some Landry washing powder to the bucket can have a effect on moving anything along and hot water is beneficial as well . But I think you will find that the shower drain is what is causing the odour pouring a mix of vinegar and baking soda down the drain as a regular maintenance job keeps them odour free and unblocked .

Does body wash clogg up shower drains?

Body wash is water soluble, so if you run some hot water it should dissolve and go down the drain. The more likely cause of clogged shower drains is hair caught either in the drain or the trap downstream from the drain. Try some liquid plumber and a small diameter drain snake. If that doesn't clear it, call the plumber

Samsung front loader error code SUD

too much powder
reset the issue by
drain empty then turn off
wait till it opens
remove the stuff

turn off the mains
hold in the power on and turn the main on again
reset/cancel the cycle
sometimes with some models you need to hold in cancel and power on

so set the machine to rinse
and run it thru and a short spin
once this is done
clean and check out the drain traps {filter} for oose and coins etc etc
take out the soap drawer and clean it in the shower

then try the cycle again
and watch what soap you use
you can also run a 95deg boil cycle through on half load {econ mode} and stick a calgon tab in too give it all a good clean

Always saying low water pressure when I run a normal cycle... The valves are open all the way and there is no restrictions.

are you running any other items such as a dishwasher , taps, hoses outside , someone in the shower this can reduce water pressure if it's been used elsewhere at the same time watering gardens etc, doing dishes

Our clothes are coming out of the washer with a rotten smell. I have tried Tied Washing Machine cleaner and the vinegar/soda mix...but no change.

Try running a cycle, at highest level, with hot water. When the tub is about ready to drain, connect the drain hose to a water hose, and let it drain through the water hose to outside. See if the water has a smell / any "floaties" that may indicate a mold / mildew growing inside the agitator. You can try to over fill (fill to highest level, then add water using a bucket) with water and add a large amount of bleach. Let it sit overnight, and run a few cycles to rinse out the bleach residue

Have you noticed a similar smell from the hot water when taking a shower / doing dishes / washing hands? You could have bacteria growing in your water heater. Shocking it (with granulized bleach - see owners manual) will help clear this up. If you are on a well, you may also be getting sulfur or Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) into your well water as well.

My shower drain gurgles when the washing machine drains

The drain from your washer is tied to your shower drain and it is receiving air from your shower drain. Maybe your washer drain is not vented. This should not be a major concern if you can live with the noise.

Water pressure to main hose has ceased, with water now pouring out of a small outlet pipe at bottom of unit next to fixing for main hose.

Sounds like your outlet at the top has clogged with grit/dirt. Turn the shower off, remover the entire shower head hose from its base (where it screws into the wall or pipe. Turn water back on. If you get a steady flow (as you should) the problem is isolated to the shower head/hose. Detach the shower head from the hose and clean the screen inside, attach hose back on first, try water again, if this flows then your blockage is in the head itself. After removing and cleaning the screen inside the shower head, reattach and run water, this should fix your problem, if not, you may need a new shower head. If the water will not flow to the outlet pipe alone, either your shower switch is broken or you have a serious plumbing problem.
