A Handyman Helping Hand

backed-up pipes

The pipe between my washer and my kitchen sink is clogged up. My washer backs-up all over the floor and the sink won't drain. I have tried putting a professional strength opener in the pipes and have snaked the lines with a hand held snake and nothing works. What I have noticed is as long as I have the trap open it doesn't back-up. As soon as I close the trap it backs-up again.

I hope all of this makes since. Can anybody help me??
