Drain clogged

Hi:
The GE washer tech told me that the leak during drain cycle is because of drain pipe, about 5-6 inches in diameter is clogging. For that, I need to call the plumber to unclog drain-pipe of the washer.

The washer was only six-months old and in good condition, except this, the leak during drain-cycle.

When I looked at it more closely, it appears to me that 'drain/toilet snake' do the job.

Any suggestion on this would be truly appreciated.

Thanks,

Not sure what this has to do with problem. Was this a drain installed six months ago for the washer ?
Are you asking if a toilet/drain snake will work ?

A toilet snake wont work and a regular snake may work if you have an approximate idea of where the clog is.
This is not a washing machine problem. The drain needs to be snaked out. You may need a plumber or drain cleaning specialist to clear the clog.
