The kitchen sink waste pipe has broken away from the sink, at the sinkhole. under the sink. Having cleaned up one flood, would I be able to use my washing machine whilst waiting for a plumber?

Hello, if your washing machine have a separately waste connection, then yes, if was connected to the sink waste pipe then no.

I would not use washing machine if it is connected to the sink waste as it would posiably flood again.

First of all does your washing machine go to that pipe or has it got it’s own waste pipe going straight out if it’s got it’s own waste then yes but if connected to your sink pipe then I wouldn’t advise you to use it till it is fixed

Assuming that the pipe between the drain and your washing machine, connect with you kitchen sink waste, the answer is "no". You round the risk of flowing again.
