Clogged Drain in Whirlpool shower/tub

Our 3nd floor tub/shower/whirlpool is clogged. I removed both the drain cover and the plunnger tub drain. I snaked both openings but I keep on running into an obstacle. Its not soft and I don't get any debris up. Could something have broken or or is the S-trap broken? If so how do I fix it.

Thank you very much

    sounds like it broke. water needs gravity to flow. go down a floor under where it would be and you might have to take a small piece of ceiling out to get to it. how much of the snake did you insert?

    how near to the trap is the obstacle?

    How old is the home?

    more then likely it is just a build up of soap and hair that is causing the problem? What are you using to snake out the drain?

    Sometimes I have been successful in removing items from a tub drain by using a wet/dry vaccuum. Be sure and block off the upper portion of the waste assembly, while using the Wet/Dry Vac on the lower section.

    Does this unit have a pump with jets? If the p-trap is broken you should have signs of water damage on the ceiling or walls below.

  • Joe Neff May 11, 2010

    How old is the house? Do you have access to the trap? When was your tub installed? How long was it working before the problem happened? Is the Tud Used often? The More info you can give me the better understanding I will have to help with your drain problem.....Joe

Shower in basement is backed up. Wondering if it's because a floor drain is covered up.

sounds more like the drain line is clogged between the shower and the main stack, and shares venting and drain with your kitchen sink. Have a plumber run a drain snake down from your kitchen drain (after the 'P' trap ) to clear the line. A covered over floor drain should have no effect on the back-up.

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus won't drain.


Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present.

If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you

F20 error message

If you have no water in the tub it is an inlet error. Look for clogged screens on the inlet water valve. You did pay the water bill didn't you?
If you have water in the tub you gonna want to check for a clogged pump or a clogged pressure tube going to the brain. Could be snow or ice clogging the drain or any kind of drain problem.

My whirlpool duet will not drain or spin

The drain line is probably clogged. Maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. In this case it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump.Remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. In case it clean there, check the outer tub port- open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then,try to remove the clothing through the port.
Thanks for contacting

Whirlpool drain clog

yes it is most likely the drain that is plugged and or frozen up. to repair this you will need to remove the rear access cover inside the freezer compartment clear all the ice from the drain pan and flush hot water thru the drain hole located in the drain pan. this is a fairly easy repair you can do youself. the hardest part will be removing and reinstalling the rear cover. good luck peyton.
BTW I use a turkey baster or large syringe filled with hot water to flush the drain line with.

I have a large whirlpool tub in MB on 1st floor. When letting water out of tub it is coming up in a large walk-in shower. The shower is draining fine...need answer! thanks

sounds like there may be some blockage in pipes. try to run a long snake through both drains or run all fixtures in bathroom and try plunging vigorously in tub and shower while running water. if nothing still, it may be possible that your underground plumbing is back graded or incorrect fittings and plumbing installation.

My whirlpool washer goes to the last spin cycle but does not drain the water

If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

SUPER clogged drains

About all you could do is rent an electric snake and clear the main drain. The shower drain line (if you follow it) may also have a port to use a snake.

Good luck!
