I have a bathroom located next to my laundry room. Whenever the water
is being drained from the washer, the toilet seems go make a gurgling
sound as if air/water from the washer is coming through the toilet. Did
the plumbers miss something when they installed plumbing in this house?
Well, you can't be sure what's behind the walls nor inside the drain
lines. Try vigorously plunging a drain while the other drains (and
overflows) are stuffed with a wet rag, then flush with hot water. The
problem may be more serious with a venting issue, make sure your vents
are not blocked. Drains should be within 4 feet of the vent stack or
a revent circuit.
