Gurgling Drains

My laundry room is directly below the kitchen. When the washer pumps out, the kitchen sink gurgles. The noise is getting worse over time. What's the cause/what's the cure?

Either a partially clogged vent pipe on the roof or a partially clogged main drain pipe.
First, check the vent pipe, clean out all leaves and debris that you can reach, and flush it with a water hose sprayer.
If that doesn't solve it, open a clean-out plug and snake the drain out with a plumber's snake.
Good Luck!
