Gurgling drain

Floor drain tees into washer drain. Removed clog past tee. Washer draining fine but floor drain gurgles when washer drains. I ran the auger through the floor drain too but it did not help. Please tell me I will not have bust up the concrete floor.

Re: Gurgling drain

Sounds like a venting issue for the washer drain. Any drain needs a vent supplying air behind water --- if the washer drain doesn't have this air and when it's draining ------- air is being drawn in from wherever it can ---- in this case the closet fixture the floor drain.
