Wondering if anyone can help me here. I was sitting here watching tv and doing a load of laundry at the same time. All of a sudden I heard this bubbling noise coming from the bathroom. When I went to check, I saw that a bunch of soapy water had somehow leaked from the washing machine into the toilet!!! Not sure how this happened, or what kind of repair is needed.

Has this happened to anyone else? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I am guessing this is not new plumbing and you have not adjusted the drain pipe's angle. There is probably something partially blocking the drain that is slowing the flow of water to the septic system or the city sewers. You may be able to rod the drain through the toilet. Or a clean out (if you have one).

A plumber could easilly perform this task. Or if you can rent a rodder from Home Depot or Lowes or other tool rental source you can do this yourself. Be aware if performed incorrectly you can damage your toilet and drains and cause extensive water damage to your home.

Thanks for the reply! You're right, this isn't new plumbing and your answer makes sense. I will call a plumber to have this looked at since I don't trust myself to do it properly.

Thank you for your help!!!!
