My washing machine water is coming out of my sink and overflowing out of the sink!

Pipe blockage. Try putting bucket under sink and opening trap pipe give it a good clean should sort problem. If not could be frozen outside pipe.

Your drain is blocked. It happened to us last weekend. Running the shower upstairs and it was coming through the sink in the downstairs loo (connected soil stack). They put a camera in the drain and there was a plant (like moss matting) growing in there. That’s been removed and we now need a patch to repair the fractured pipe.

Try taking off and clearing out ur u-bend under the sink. If that is clear it will be a blocked pipe outside. Wouldn't imagine that to be the case tho as usually an inlet pipe that would freeze as it has water in it. I had it once as teenager n it was the u-bend. Wasn't thinking about fat concealing from frying pan etc. Never will make that mistake again lol. Fix quick tho cos all the dirty dish water goes into the machine also.
