The culprit has to be the drain stopper. It refuses to move. It s stuck in the open position but it almost seems like it s not open all the way. The pull lever to close and open it doesn t work either.

The mechanics below the sink make it difficult too. The lever where the drain stopper is usually connected isn t there? It s like a weird flexible tube.

Help!!!
