Is it overflowing the pipe in your home's plumbing system when it is draining?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
i think that's correct
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

If that is the case, the issue is not with your machine but with the drain pipe in your home. Do you see the water coming out at the top of that pipe?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
the kitchen sink dishwasher and washing machine seem to be connected. To answer your question YES
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

Okay, so the issue will need to be addressed by Roto-Rooter or another sewer company that can clean the drain pipe. There is something that is blocking the water flow in the pipe in your home's drain line. If you provide your zip code, I can get you a number.

is there a product i could by to clear the line. I assume its clogged with lint as I live here by myself
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

Sure, there is a commercial quality cleaner that is acid based that would clear it quickly. It is available at most any hardware store, see link below.
