Clogged drain from washer

My washer is in the basement and drains into a 3 well sink. When doing laundry I find that all 3 wells fill up and drain extremely slowly (like 8 hours to empty). I assume because the water moves from one sink to the other and the water levels are the same that the clog is beyond the sink. How do I find where the clog is?

It would seem you need to run a snake through the wash tub drain. Remove the trap arm at the wall and enter there or at the clean out cap, if there is one.
