Clearing a Frozen Line

Clearing a Frozen Line

What would cause a washing machine to stop draining suddenly? I have a snake, but could only get about 4-6 feet into the pipe. Nothing shows on the end of the snake, like a cloth or root.

If your pipe is blocked by sludge, grease or frozen water, your drain will stop suddenly causing plumbing problems. The only way to clear this type of clog is with a tube that feeds into your residential plumbing line and runs hot water to the clog. The attachment must have a backflow preventer on the line so any sludge and bacteria in the line can't siphon back into your potable water.

I would recommend to calling one of your local plumbing contractors to fully diagnose and correct your issue. Roto-Rooter handles all types of drain and plumbing services.
