SOURCE: 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.

You shouldn't have to disassemble everything in order to get to the trap (elbow joint). Most pedestal sinks are designed so that you can get to the trap from the back (generally after getting down on your hands and knees and crawling around with a flashlight). Most sink stoppers that are worked from the faucet itself have a little bar that extends down the back of the sink behind the drain. It will clip with a little metal piece to a lever that sticks out the back of the drain before the trap. The lever goes through a hole in the drain and pokes into a hole in the bottom of your sink stopper. As you move the lever, you will notice that your stopper goes up and down.

Unclip the rod from the lever and you should be able to unscrew the lever from the back of the drain (don't loose the little gasket that sits inside the screw-cap as it keeps water from leaking out here). At this point, you can pull out the stopper and see what is going on. If cleaning off the stuff attached to your stopper doesn't solve the problem, you can then remove the trap to see if anything is clogging that. Hopefully, by this point, your sink clog has been identified and you just need to reassemble, making sure when you put your stopper lever back in that you actually get it into the appropriate hole in the stopper itself.

If this doesn't solve your problem, it's more serious and you probably want to call a plumber as the issue is either a clog farther along or a problem with the venting of the sink drain.

Clogged drain on moen bathroom sink


There should be a stopper valve on the sink's downspout (the first section of drain pipe). You SHOULD be able to loosen the nut holding the stopper valve's lever inside the pipe. Once you remove that nut, you can pull the lever out - that releases the stopper inside the sink, so you should start with the stopper OPEN, and hold it open with a chopstick or pencil or other tool when you remove that lever.

The lever and the bottom of the stopper itself will be wrapped with masses of hair. That's normal. Clean it up and reinsert it, put the nut back on & snug it down, then readjust the stopper.

If that's not enough, you may need to open the trap (the gooseneck-shaped piece of drain pipe under the sink) to clean it out.

Backed Up Kitchen Double Sink Fix with Garbage Disposal- Quick and Simple Fix


Here's how to fix a backed-up double sink (running water down one side/sink causing dirty water to well up out of the drain on the other side, with slow or no emptying). Note that this quick-and-easy tip only works if you have a functioning garbage disposal.

What you will need: a stopper, and possibly a clean toilet plunger (the cup-shaped kind that stands on its own, not the kind that is bulb-shaped)

Stopper up the side in which the water is rising up out of the drain. Make sure you hold down the stopper as well; if you don't, the stopper will shoot up on a geyser of dirty water when you perform the next step. Once you have the stopper in place and are holding it down, run water on the other side/sink and turn on the garbage disposal. Once you have done that for a reasonable amount of time, shut off the garbage disposal and water, and unstopper* the other side. Run water on both sides to make sure everything is draining properly. Doing this should save you the hassle of taking the pipes apart or plunging one side repeatedly to clear the clog.

*Note: If the stopper is stuck, place the plunger so it completely covers the opening the stopper is stuck in and give it two good plunges. The plunger should create a vacuum that will suck out the stopper, and is more effective than you trying to pry or pull on it. Do this ONLY after you have shut off the garbage disposal and water.

What is happening is that there is a clog in your pipes. When water goes down one side, it hits the clog somewhere in the pipes, has nowhere to go, and gets pushed back up the pipe leading to the other side of the double sink. By stopping up the side without the garbage disposal, you are creating a barrier preventing the water from coming back up. At the same time, the garbage disposal running on the other side is forcing the water down. Since the water now cannot escape up the stoppered side, it has nowhere to go but down, forcing the clog out with it.

Simple Removal of Stuck Sink Stopper


I found an easy solution to removing a stuck stopper recently when I was fixing my kitchen sink and the stopper became vacuum-stuck. Instead of trying to pull on it (which will not work since the pressure is too great), or trying to release the vacuum by prying up an edge with a knife or other instrument (which would damage the stopper or sink), I used a (clean) toilet plunger to plunge the stopper out. Simply place the plunger squarely over the opening where the stopper is stuck and give it two good plunges. I got the stopper stuck several times while fixing the sink and this trick worked every time for getting the stopper unstuck. Make sure you are using a plunger that's cup-shaped (stands upright on its own), and not the kind that has a bulb at the end.

The strainer/stopper is stuck in the kitchen sink the sink has a disposal unit attached. How do I remove it from the top


We just experienced the problem describe in this question. A dinner guest pushed the strainer stopper past the Blanco flange over the disposer and the stopper could not be removed by pulling straight up. The Blanco flange is difficult to remove so we knew that removing the flange would be a last ditch effort. I tried using several tools trying to deform the stopper enough to lift past the lower part of the flange but without success. While I was on the internet looking for a solution, my wife found the obvious answer. She pushed the stopper down into the disposer, rotated it 90 degrees. She then aligned the edges of the stopper with two of the small indents in the lower part of the flange. The stopper was then pulled up past the flange where only two points on the circumference of the stopper contacted the flange.
Kudos to her for this simple solution.

My strainer/stopper is stuck in kitchen sink drain. How to remove it?


If it's not visible from above then you must remove the trap j-bend. Go under the sink and put a big bowl or tray under the trap because when you remove the j-bend water will come out. You'll need a 12" grooved pliers, like channel locks, to get the nuts off. There are two of them. If the trap is old brass or chrome you may end up cracking the j-bend. If it's white or black plastic you can probably remove the nuts by hand. Look in the j and pull out your stopper. If it's visible from above a long pair of needle nose pliers would work best to remove the stopper.

We purchased a Silgranit sink and the recommended stopper-strainer (model no. 441098). Our plumber says that this unit is designed to fit through the sink bowl and attach to a waste disposal system (ie....
