Question about Dishwashers
I had the same problem. Turned out that the "weep hole" was a hole in the housing where the water pressure eventually popped a hole through the plastic housing. Replacement was the only option. Ours was a Badger 1.

I am not sure I unbderstand your problem based on the description you've provided but maybe I can explain the basics of your garbage disposal system. Most , if not all garbage disposal systems include a 'knockout' plug for side input of a dishwasher. There eran't any weep holes in any that I know of.. Just the feed opening at the top, a side drain opening that normally includeds a gasket and adapter to be tied into your drain system and a stub on the side ( near the top) that has a knockout inside in case you wantto attach the drain hose of a built in dishwasher to it. If that is where your seeing water leaking than and you do not have a dishwasher attached to it, then you may want to add a section of hose to it with a hose clamp and plug one end to keep water from leaking out. I don't know if I've helped you but I took a shot.. Hope this helps.. If so.. please rate this response accordingly.. Good Luck !

The pump is a motor which runs in one direction to spray water in the dishwasher to clean and the opposite direction to drain the water. The problem could be from a clog or kink in the drain hose. Several years ago the drain line would connect to the sink garbage disposal. If the garbage disposal is not draining or the dishwasher connection to the garbage disposal is restricted or clogged the dishwasher will not drain. Under the sink, look at the garbage disposal to see if a rubber hose is connected at the side of the disposal unit. If a hose is connected to the side of the disposal, remove the hose clamp and check for any restrictions from garbage in the inlet or hose. You can use a screwdriver to clean the fitting to the garbage disposal and a wire hanger to free any restrictions in the hose. If the dishwasher does not connect to the garbage disposal it should connect to the sink trap. This is more common with new dishwashers because they have built-in disposals. Disconnect the drain hose from the sink trap and the dishwasher and look for a clog at the sink connection. The dishwasher inlet should have an angled piece of plastic or metal facing downward to prevent the waste from the dishwasher from spraying up into the sink. Do not get to aggressive with the cleaning in order to prevent breaking the angled piece of plastic or metal. Look for any kinks in the hose and try to run water through the hose, but do not use the sink which you removed the drain line from or it could leak under the cabinet. If you see a bad kink replace the hose with a new one. I hope this works and you find the problem without a great deal of time or trouble.
