Carmichael, it sounds as if your washing machine drain is actually acting as the vent for your toilet. The washing machine drain should have a trap installed on it before it’s connection to the waste system. Without a trap there is no water seal. Therefore sewer gas is allowed to move from the waste line to the atmosphere through your washing machine drain.
