In Sink Erator Classic Supreme with sensor problem

I have an In Sink Erator Classic Supreme with what appears to be either a switch or sensor problem. It cleans the dishes well enough, but lately when
I try to run a load of dishes, the "clean" indicator light stays on and the appliance will not operate. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I have the same problem with my in-sink-erator classic series dishwasher, purchased in 1991. When trying to start the green "clean" indicator light comes on. Some sort of sensor or switch problem as noted in the earlier posting. Is there a way to remove the switch and clean, repair or replace it economically? By the way, when I worked through the various switches I was eventually able to finally get it started, but it takes longer every time and I almost gave up this time! Any help would be appreciated.

I would assume that in the last year you've either fixed the washer or have gotten a new one. If your curious, this is probably the solution. There's a plastic piece that pushed a button when you open the latch and resets the washer. The piece is probably broken. If you remove the screws on the top of the door, you can reach in and manually push the button. You can also tape some metal into the end of the plastic piece so it will still push the button. A flattened bottle cap will work.

    Worked great. Three screws on the top and one on each side. Still haven't figured out how that piece actuates but I got it to reset. Will figure a more permeant solution after it finishes

Water does not drain from sink unless disposal is turned on and running. what could it be?


It would appear there is a blockage (a clog) in the disposal. You might try "FIRST" unplugging the disposal from under the sink. Put a piece of masking tape over the switch to secure it in the "OFF" position. Then remove the black rubber strainer from sink leading down into the disposal. (just pull it out by hand) Clean out all debris by hand. Put the removed debris in the trash can. Run hot water down into the disposal assuring it to drain properly. Do not put items into the disposal which cannot be ground up easily such as potato peelings and meat products.

In Sink Erator leaks half way down


1) Copy following link for troubleshoot and replacement tips.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-repair-and-install-Garbage-disposal.html

2) Insinkerator usually has 5 year warranty.
If unit is leaking, then replace with new disposal.
Waste King disposals have longer warranty, but local hardware sells Insinkerator/Badger for less.

Theres a reset button on the side of the thing.  Also check the breaker box to see if the switch got flipped.

In sink erator is leaking from bottom


I had this happen right before my disposal stopped working completely. Mine was leaking from the same place. The one I had was a 2 year Badger. They are easy to replace. If yours still works I would keep using it and just sit a pan down below to catch water. A new Badger 1 year cost $80 at Home Depot. If you get one, do not worry about buying extra gaskets or the black sink strainer thing because the new one will come with everything needed except for the plumbers putty. You will need plumbers putty. Good Luck

In sink erator( 5 horsepower) doesnot function


On the bottom of the disposal is a place for an allen wrench. Take and turn the unit with the allen wrench to break it loose. It sounds as if has something sticking the blades.

Jammed disposal (in sink erator) i believe a nail was lodged there. it came out but it still doesn't work. Had a allens wrench and hit red button and it still doesn't work


My unit was not spinning, seemed like no power after it would just sit there and make that humming noise. Used the wrench to loosen up (if any) debris. I didn't realize the little red reset switch on the bottom was not popping out all the way. After the wrench, I then depressed the red button and it worked fine. I would check to make sure your switch is out all the way before trying other solutions.

1987 In-Sink-Erator Classic Supreme (Just like KitchenAid from that era) - leaked Jet Dry after it was filled. Haven't taken door apart yet to figure out what is wrong. Also, after washing/rinse/dry is...


You have to replace the rinse aid compartment if not the whole inside door shell ,the reason for the coating is because your not using rinse aid.If you are using the same soap than you need to replace the leaking dispensor.
