my washing machine is draining straight up my kitchen sink. ive used drano and others and nothing is working. snaked it once and thought i had it but i guess not. getting angry now. what to do?

Hello, I hope I can help you with your situation. First let me just say that I honestly have first hand experience with this as this same situation happened to me just last week. Do you have a garbage disposal?

No but I'm in the process of putting in a new kitchen sink with a new garbage disposal. Rite now the pipe just comes out of wall and and disconnected at u pipe
Okay, well to be honest when this happened to me I had to call a plumber and he used a 50ft snake to clear my line. Sounds like your sink drain and washer drain are tied together before it goes in to the main drain. I tried chemicals also to unclog it but just like you my drain was so clogged that it started to overflow at the washer and my sink was clogged.
