My Washing Machine Won't Drain | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If your washing machine has a clog and won’t drain or backs up, it’s time to call the drain cleaning experts at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.

You’ve been diligent about running every morning to get ready for today’s PB&J Run. But yesterday, when you got home from your run, you tossed your dirty running clothes in the washer and, instead of getting clean clothes, you got a backed up washer. You’re not sure if it didn’t drain during the rinse cycle or if it drained, then backed up. Either way, the result was the same – a soaking mess.

It sounds as if your washer – or the drain pipe – is clogged. Washing machines can become clogged for several reasons. One is because you’ve been tossing stuff in the washer that shouldn’t be there.

Stuff like clothing and other articles covered in pet hair.

“Even though pet blankets, beds, and clothes need regular cleaning, they should not be tossed in a washing machine if they are covered with hair. Just like your hair can clog a bathroom sink or shower drain, pet hair is terrible for the water pump filters and drains in your washer,” according to “Before you toss items heavily covered with pet hair in the washer, take them outside for a good brushing or even toss them in the dryer with a couple of dryer sheets and allow them to tumble on low heat or air only for fifteen minutes. This will remove enough of the hair so you can wash them safely.”

As for what to do now that you do have a clog and can’t get it out yourself: call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
