1) Take the tank lid off the back of the toilet and look inside, a toilet tank needs to fill up with water after each flush or the toilet won’t flush correctly. Without enough water in the tank, the toilet won’t flush with enough force to avoid clogs in the drainpipe.

MOST common reasons why your toilet won’t flush.
1) Toilet clog, using too much toilet paper or flushing woman’s sanitary products can cause toilet to be clogged. How to repair a toilet clog- Try using a plunger or toilet auger to push waste through. You may wish to purchase thinner toilet paper if your household tends to use a lot in one sitting. Also encourage females to dispose of sanitary products in trash and not down the toilet.
2) Handle breaks or becomes loose, first check the toilet handle. Tighten if needed, if the handle is broken, take the part to your local hardware store. Get a similar replacement.
3) Lift chain is not working properly, sometimes the lift chain that connects to toilet flapper can have too much slack. When this happens the chain is too loose to pull toilet flapper off flush tube when toilet is flushed. The water is then not released. To solve this problem, you simply need to shorten the length of the lift chain so the chain can give enough pull to remove toilet flapper from flush tube.
4) Float Ball sticks, the flush valve can use a tapered rubber float ball or a flapper ball to control the flow of water into the toilet. The float ball can get stuck or the chain can get tangled and cause the float ball not to work properly. The Flapper balls are common on newer flush valves and are connected to the handle lift arm with a lift chain.The float ball is hollow and floats on top of the water as it is being filled in the tank. When the water gets to the desired level, the float ball moves the float arm and turns off the water flow in the ballcock. By bending the float arm you can “fine tune” the point at which the water turns off and stops filling the tank.
5) If the toilet flapper is warped, remove the lid from the toilet tank and take a look inside at the flapper. The toilet flapper is designed to release water when toilet is flushed and then plug the hole back up, sealing the water inside tank. If the toilet won’t flush because flapper has deteriorated and is no longer sealing flush tube hole, then this will need to be replaced. Flappers can easily be purchased at any hardware store and are relatively cheap. Turn off water, drain tank, and then swap out the old flapper with the new one. Afterwards, turn water back on, and the toilet should flush properly.
