Try feeding water in from toilet end, or increasing water feed presureand holding valve open at toilet end. The more difficult way is to find the high point in the system before toilet and fit a bleed nipple, this may mean dismantling interior.

How did my cleaning question end up under dishwashers?

Just as a guess, with the bowl empty you might try marble or granite polish.

Toilet wont flush

Main 3 (or 4) inch drain under the toilet is clogged. Requires removing the toilet and running a "snake" down the pipe. Alternately, you can (carefully) try manually filling the toilet bowl all the way to the top----to apply pressure to the may push it through.

My Glacier Bay toilet is clogged. I tried plunging, the hot water and dishwasher detergent trick, the baking soda and vinegar trick and even attempted to manually unclog it with my hand. I don't e

The clog must be down in the pipe a ways. You will have to remove the toilet from the floor and use a plumber's snake. It is not as hard as it sounds to do this, but it can be intimidating. Look up how-to videos on you-tube. You will need a new wax ring (when you put the toilet back) and you can rent an electric snake from a tool rental place. They will show you how to operate it. You might be able to get away with a hand-snake, but only if the clog is easy and kind of close. The electric snake might be overkill, but it will work even if you have tree roots causing the clog. Good luck!

Problem: when I flush my toilet most often the water swirls around and doesn't flush. I've tried bending a coat hanger and snaking it through the exit hole to see if there was an obstruction. Any...

This is a job for a plumber unless you have a ladder. The vent pipe may be plugged or the trap in the toilet may be plugged up but this requires removing the toilet from the floor which is not that hard. two floor bolts and and turn off the water valve and disconnect the water hose then lift the toilet up and see if there is blockage by poring a gallon of water into the drain pipe. if it backs up you need to snake out the main line. You can rent a electric 25 foot snake for 35 bucks but then you have to reinstall everything plus buy a new wax ring which is about 5 bucks. if the pipe is clean and drains fine then you need to run water into the toilet outside to clear the throat of the toilet if there is no blockage then the vent pipe may be plugged and that you have to get from the roof. Best bet is call a plumber.

Both toilets and bath tubs are clogged.PLEASE help . its a crane but i dnt knw the model.

You have a main drain clog. The sinks are clogged too (run water and you will see it come up the tub). Is this a one floor house? Basement? You probably should call a plumber unless you are willing to take on the task of snaking it yourself. Sounds like you may have a house on a slab? (no basement)?

Water won't go down the bowl..Seems to flush fine except water wont go down...Nothing is obstructing is not clogged

If water won't go down, you have an obstruction. It might be up inside the trap of the toilet. Use a closet auger to try to remove it. If the toilet trap is clear, you either have a clogged stack or vent.

My Whirlpool Cabrio washer is backing up into and overflowing my toilet every once in a while during the spin cylce. But today, the washer was not running and the toilet overflowed. The toilet is located...

Your problem is not with the washing machine. I suspect that the drain line for your toilet is obstructed further down the line than your snake can reach. If you have a clean out riser to your sewer system, flush the toilet while someone else is watching the flow past the clean out. I would say that renting a sewer line snake at a tool rental like Home Depot would solve your problem. Good luck

Toilet bowl is clogged

Go to Lowes and get a power plunger (it shoots a blast of water directly at the clog) or get a plumbers snake and work the clog out. Follow up with a liquid Plumber or Draino unless you have a septic tank. Good luck.
