I need a bit of help from someone. My washer drain is backing up. When it runs the spin cycle the water wont drain fast enough to go down the drain. I tried this acid eater stuff from my hardware store and that didnt work it eats clothing and everything it touches. After letting the drain cleaner set for anout 30 min I ran cold water in the drain for a while, while I went and mowed the lawn. I didnthave the water running high probly on med... And then I tired to run the spin cycle on the washe and the water just backed up again so I need some help any thoughts besides call a plummber.............

Try a drain snake. They make hand-operated versions and types that you attach to a drill. It may take some patience and persistence, but it is actually kinda fun Smile They cost between 10 and 20 bucks. I had a problem drain in my bathroom shortly after I bought this house. A half hour of work with a drain snake (also known as an auger) and I haven't had a problem since. In fact, any drain you have that you find yourself periodically pouring drain cleaners down you should consider snaking. Once you clean it out, you probably won't have to touch it for years.

How is the drain hose connection? Is it just a drain hose that goes down the drain? and how old is the washer? We have a new one that has a sensor for wetness during the cycle. We thought we had a washer proble so called the repair guy.
He came out, did a bunch of tests. he figured out it was a revese siphon thing. That the end of the hose was too far down the drain, that it was actually ciphoning back up as it was pumpng out causing the sensor to go beserk.

If you put the drain hose in a big bucket does it drain normally? If so clogged sewer vents can cause slow drains too. For that I would personally call a plumber in it's a bit beyond my knowledge on how to fix

I live in a apt. complex, the guys left their magic stuff here... it is called Clean Shot Crystal Drain Opener... use hot water... this stuff blasts through anything!! it is made by Theochem laboratories inc. www.theochem.com is the site, u can probably see where you can get it from a google search

Good luck!!
