Dont feel bad fry. I had a similar situation where water came out of the pipe for my washing machine. The people who owned the house before me put thinset down the drain and closed off the pipe inderground by 60%. I had to get it all hydrojetted. Cost about 800 bucks. You biggest problem is that 1.25in copper not being able to handle the load from the 1.5 to 2 in abs pipe above. Id love to dig up your slab and see where that copper ends.

I guess it's a good thing they had a typical home inspector who missed the real problems.

Snake the drain. Install a utility sink with an AAV for the washer to go to.
