Water won't drain from tank when flushed.
 
My toilet fills ok, but when you press the handle, the flapper raises, but the water won't go down. It dribbles very slowly, but does not "flush"
HELP!!!

Have you reached into the tank and lifted up the flapper?

Most likely the flapper is old and needs replacing.

flapper is not the problem
 
I can see the flapper raise, the water just will not go down.

Reach in the tank and remove the flapper completely---then tell me what happens.

Toy under the flapper was my original guess. :laughing:

Would love to hear the actual outcome though.
