Noisy gurgling drains

I have very noisy drains in one of my bathrooms. When using the shower or draining the tub, the sink gurgles. When using the sink, the tub gurgles. However, these two drains do NOT gurgle when the toilet is flushed. But sometimes when the clothes washer in another part of the house drains (pumps out), the bath drains gurgle. There is no indication of a stopped up drain because they drain freely. I suspect a venting problem. It has gotten that way over the past few months and seems to be getting worse (noisy gurgling). No plumbing has been changed and there is no such problem elsewhere in the house. Suggestions?

I'm not a pro plumber, but it sounds to me like you have a partially clogged drain line.
You need to snake the drain lines, or have the main line checked for roots.
Good Luck!
