The drain will not drain

If its in the drain it could be hair caught up around the stopper or caught up in the trap. It could also be further down the line, such as if your in Michigan it could be a frozen pipe.

I can not close my bath tub drain. the plunger is all internal and wont come out either. I tried a coat hanger to push it down. no go.

on most tubs the stopper is made to come out! does the stopper have 2 screws at the stopper lever. if it does just remove these screws and pull the stopper out slowly. when putting in a new one. have the same length as the old one, then slide it back in the drain fairly slow until it goes all the way in. replace screws and try it! good-day!

How does the lift and turn stopper come out so we can clean plugged drain?

  • Push the stopper down to fully seal the stopper against the tub drain.

  • 2

    Turn the knob on top of the stopper counterclockwise with your fingers. Do not lift the stopper while turning the knob. Remove the knob from the stopper.

  • 3

    Insert a large flathead screwdriver into the slot on the center shaft of the stopper. You will see the center shaft when you remove the knob. Turn the shaft counterclockwise to unthread it from the retaining hole in the bathtub drain basket.

  • 4

    Use a pair of vise-grip pliers to turn the shaft if the center hole has corrosion and will not accept a screwdriver. Lock the jaws of the pliers securely around the shaft, and turn the shaft counterclockwise.

    Pull the stopper out of the tub by lifting it by the shaft.

    I will do my best to explain this ---- the little button on top of the drain cap unscrews counter-clockwise,, I have found it best to push down the drain cap with one one hand ( very hard down )and with your other hand turn the button counter-clockwise. if it still will not budge then you might need to get a pair of channel locks and a pair of pliers and get it that way. now as soon as you get the button off -- the center spindle unscrews using a large flatblade screwdriver,, unscrew it and it will all come off. if you have anymore troubles - please feel free to write back and I will do my best to walk you through any steps.

    I stopper on a garden tub with a delta faucet. The stopper pushes down and locks to stop water. It takes a few tries pushing it down to get it to stop and hold water. What is the best way to fix it or...

    In my part of the country, the type of drain you refer to is commonly called a tip-toe drain because you can use your toes to open and close the drain. Their locking ability diminishes over time and use, and eventually won't lock at all. They cannot be repaired, and must be replaced. You must remove the one you have to get the correct replacement because there are variations in the thread diameter at the bottom of the stopper.
    You will need to use pliers large enough to grab around the white plastic underneath the top of the stopper that appears to disappear into the drain. Once you have the white plastic shaft secured with pliers, grab the very top (the chrome part) and twist it counterclockwise to remove it. Once that is off you will see a round piece of brass that looks like the top of a very large screw. IT IS! Using a stantard screw driver, again turn counterclockwise to finish removing the rest of the stopper.
    A good hardware store should have a replacement for you. Be sure to match up the thread diameter at the bottom of the stopper.
    To reinstall, you can reverse the steps or simply thread the complete assembly into place.

    Toe tap stoppers remove by just gripping the stopper and unscrewing it. Once the stopper has been removed the hair will be usually caught on the crossbar underneath the stopper where it can be removed with needlenose pliers.
    Spring type stoppers for drains are just about as notorious for being hair catchers. Once again there is nothing to stop the hair from leaving the tub.

    The bathroom drain stopper will not stay closed.

    there is a small compression nut on the drain, it needs to be tightened slightly. look under the sink when you pull the lever up close the stopper, you will see where it connects to the drain. tighten that nut slightly.
    do not over tighten or you won't be able to move the stopper at all, you just need enough pressure to hold the weight of the lifting rod and stopper in place.

    Bathroom sink stopper came unhooked and out, not attached anymore

    You will need to get under there and unscrew the popup rod located on the back of the drain. pull out the rod, drop the stopper in there and push the rod through the hole in the bottom of the stopper. screw the nut back on.
