Most drains have a threaded nut on the bottom that needs to be loosened before the drain can be removed through the sink.

Shower and bath sink wont drain.


Bath sink will be on what is called a "wet vent" for the shower.
That means they are on the same drain.
There should be a cleanout on the sink drain below where the drain enters the wall. That would be your "last resort" access to put a snake in to break up the obstruction.
I would try using a plumbers suction plunger on the shower drain.
Show no mercy!
Cheers.

Draining slowly


try by taking of the trap under sink, and clearing it out ! its the U shaped pipe under sink drain. this is where most of the sinks plug up. unless you have a plugged up drain pipe. do the drain trap first. if this does not solve all of problem, put some good drain cleaner down sink drain. good-day ! and have a merry christmas.

We just installed a new moen 4 inch centerset Lindley faucett with drain for our bathroom. The drain piece has 2 molded holes in it. We are experiencing leaks from this pipe. How are we supposed to fix...


Ok I asked for some more information, but let me give it a try to help you with what I have here.

The two holes are for water to drain out of the over flow of the sink. If you look at the sink on the front side you may have to feel but there is one hole or up to three little ones. They take off water when someone walks away with the faucet on and they it goes down the drain and not on the floor.

Now if the sink your putting this in is a steel sink that does not have an over flow it will leak and you need an other drain system that is made for a sink with no over flow.

Places like manufactored homes, boats, campers would be where you would find a sink that does not have a over flow. Now with the over flow out if the sink does is not about1 inch thick.

if not use try more putty

When I try to drain my dishwasher, it fills up my sink. when the sink drains, my dishwasher fills


Sounds like you have your dishwasher drain connected directly to your drain under sink and you have a blocked drain. It will function normally once you have removed the block in the sink drain but you should have a the dishwasher drain hose hooked up to a air gap to prevent harmful bacteria from getting in to the dishwasher again in the future. Hope this helps.

When my dishwasher drains both sides of sink fill with water...then they both eventually drain back into the dishwasher.


Sounds like your sink drain trap or line is clogged. When the dishwasher drains, the sink drain can't keep up, the water backs up, then backs down the dishwasher drain line into the dishwasher. You may not notice the slow line when you run a little water into the sink, but with the amount of water coming from the dishwasher the problem is worse. You can try taking off the trap under the sink and making sure it's clear. If the problem is farther down the drain line, you can try snaking it yourself, or call a plumber. I don't recommend using Liquid Plumr or Drano because if those don't work, they leave the line full of caustic chemicals for the next person who works on it. That can be dangeerous.

Washer will not drain or spin with pipe in specific washer drain but will if placed in the sink We have moved house and the new house has the usual pipework behind the washer. The machine will fill and...


Hi.

ok Did you say the drain hose was placed on a spiggot underneath the sink???

the appliance is obviously working as you have tried the drain hose in the sink.

You may find, if you unscrew the drain spiggot, there is a blanking cap. your previous owners put this in place to stop a huge water leak when using the sink

remove cap, refit hose and it should work ok.
Please let me know if I was right?

Some water sits in the bottom and does not drain completely. Don't know if the drain inside the sink was not properly installed or if the sink is designed that way.


this is not supposed to happen, either drain not installed properly or drain is clogged. suggest trying drain cleaner first if sink has been in for a period of time. if sink is recently installed call whoever installed and have them fix the drain

Dishwasher water keeps backing up into kitchen sink then taking a long time to drain from sink


Yes, your sink drain needs cleaning -- it's clogged. Pour some bleach into the sink drains and let it sit for a couple of hours. Flush out with boiling hot water.

If this improves the situation but not completely solving the drain problem, try it again.

If that doesn't solve the problem, remove the P-traps on the sink drains under the sink and clean them out.

If that doesn't work, let me know -- we'll try something else.

Dishwasher does not drain, instead drains through overflow valve in sink. No apparent clog seen.


Usually the sink connection is not an overflow, it is the main drain from the dishwasher. It is more likely your s-bend is blocked under the sink- try putting a bucket under it and unscrewing the u-shaped piece and cleaning out (remember don't wash it in that sink while the pipe is off)

Dble sink, one with the garbage disp. won't drain standing water


It's a drain clog within the disposal. Try a drain cleaner, if no luck, you will likely need to replace it.
