When it rains, it pours. I don't think the toilet and washing machine are connected. I'm going to ask somebody about the washing machine soon. It probably needs to be replaced.

Crazy' but washing machines are usually easy to fix' (If you know somebody that knows how to work on them)..I watched a friend who is good with repairs' tear my washer apart and stick a tiny little part in it and "walla" its been purring for years.. I always like to watch repair people'

I also always go on Utube or on line and pose a question and surprised at all the reply's with detailed fixers available...

I am stubborn and always try to do things my self' ...but?? Who knows for you Heckagirl' Do some research' ...You will be surprised...

I agree that the Roomba (although I have an off-brand "Bob-o-Sweep" doesn't replace a good vacumming, but it is awesome if you want an everyday freshening, especially if you program it to do it by itself when you aren't home (although we are mostly all at home all the time these days!).

I went ahead and bought another "new" used washer today. I had had it 4 years, and it was bought as an old used washer to begin with. All this business was through the same used appliances business. They are really good. The man brought the "new" machine out, hooked it up, and ran tests to make sure it didn't leak. It was the old washer that was leaking, everything is dry now. Now if son can fix the toilet.

Love our Roomba, "Rosita." We had 2 dogs and a cat, and I run it 2-3 times a week. As noted about, the edges/corners need regular vacuuming, but it is SO nice not to have dog hair on the floor. The only thing I have to remember is to loop the curtains up as I have floor to ceiling ones, and Rosita will get all tangled up in them.

Hahahaha, I read the preview for this topic, and thought you had named our Rosie to be Rosita, which is a really cute nickname for our Rosie, come to think of it.

Mine is named Agador because it reminded me of the Hank Azaria's character in The Birdcage.

Called a plumber today. Waste of time. So disappointed. Really thought they would take care of my problems. Nothing. Have had problems with holes in the floors ever since I have lived here. The toilet is crooked. But it has been like that 20 years. One of my sons told me years ago, it would be fine. The pipe would hold it up, and it has. All we need is the toilet unclogged and the inside valves, etc. replaced. They wouldn't touch it. So now we are still at square one. My husband with dementia cannot remember not to use this toilet. So it is a problem. If I could just find someone to help me, I would be happy to pay them.

Did the plumber give any clue what is causing the clog?

If you live in a mobile park, are you hooked up to the same septic tank system or whatever it is that you have? If so, are any of your neighbors having a similar problem as you?

No, the plumbers didn't do anything at all, except tell me they could not touch it. And no, everyone has their own septic tank. The plumber did tell me that it is not the septic tank if the other toilet is working fine.

Ok. That's a start, knowing it's not the septic tank. :-)

I vaguely remember when my aunt had to get a new toilet installed, she couldn't find a plumber who wanted to do it. I think it has to do with liability. If they don't get the seal right (or even if they do, but later something happens through no fault of their own), they can be sued for water damage caused by a leak in the seal. My aunt had to find a handyman who would install it. And since your toilet is crooked, I doubt any licensed plumber will do it. You are going to have to find a handyman that could use the money if we can't figure this out.

So, let's start at square one. You tried the snake. Was it a regular snake or a toilet auger? The internet says it makes a difference.

I found this article about using the snake/auger and things that could cause it not to clear the clog. Read it and see if you have any of these situations and maybe/hopefully it will fix your problem. If not we go on from there.

Well, I love a good mystery and we are gonna solve it. And I live in a 100 year old, 1 bathroom house, so I can relate to toilet problems, finding someone to fix them and them doing it right in the first place.

Hey, I just remembered this trick. You need 2 people. Hecka, have you tried filling up your sinks (kitchen and bathroom) and bathtub with water and also a bucket of water.

When you flush the toilet, at the same time, you pull the plugs on the sinks and bathtub. (Flush your second toilet for good measure) When (if) the water starts going down the toilet bowl with the problem, you pour the water from the bucket into the toilet bowl to keep the pressure up. Sometimes all the water pressure at the same time will help dislodge whatever is blocking the pipe.

Hmmm... The problem with my house was always the pipe leading out to the septic tank. If your second toilet is working fine, I don't know if this will help. But I typed it all out already, so I'm not erasing it! Lol!

Had another plumber come out today for a different problem. He couldn't find it, so didn't do anything. I also had him look at a leak under the kitchen sink. He didn't want to fool with it either. I don't get it. No one wants to work.

Oh, I don't have anyone to help me with that, Grooch. Interesting, though.

A different plumber came out this evening. Couldn't find anything wrong. I don't know why they won't just take my word that it's leaking. There was water all over the floor earlier, but it had dried up. So nothing has been done. So frustrating!
