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.

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.
Hi 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 no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging.

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.
Hi 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 fixya.com
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.
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.
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.
