Hi Monique,

By any chance is your kitchen sink draining slowly? If the main drain is clogged it will back-up all the way to the dishwasher. Try using 2-Second Plumber or a similar product with a CO2 blast to clean the whole drain first.

Tip

Backed Up Kitchen Double Sink Fix with Garbage Disposal- Quick and Simple Fix


Here's how to fix a backed-up double sink (running water down one side/sink causing dirty water to well up out of the drain on the other side, with slow or no emptying). Note that this quick-and-easy tip only works if you have a functioning garbage disposal.

What you will need: a stopper, and possibly a clean toilet plunger (the cup-shaped kind that stands on its own, not the kind that is bulb-shaped)

Stopper up the side in which the water is rising up out of the drain. Make sure you hold down the stopper as well; if you don't, the stopper will shoot up on a geyser of dirty water when you perform the next step. Once you have the stopper in place and are holding it down, run water on the other side/sink and turn on the garbage disposal. Once you have done that for a reasonable amount of time, shut off the garbage disposal and water, and unstopper* the other side. Run water on both sides to make sure everything is draining properly. Doing this should save you the hassle of taking the pipes apart or plunging one side repeatedly to clear the clog.

*Note: If the stopper is stuck, place the plunger so it completely covers the opening the stopper is stuck in and give it two good plunges. The plunger should create a vacuum that will suck out the stopper, and is more effective than you trying to pry or pull on it. Do this ONLY after you have shut off the garbage disposal and water.

What is happening is that there is a clog in your pipes. When water goes down one side, it hits the clog somewhere in the pipes, has nowhere to go, and gets pushed back up the pipe leading to the other side of the double sink. By stopping up the side without the garbage disposal, you are creating a barrier preventing the water from coming back up. At the same time, the garbage disposal running on the other side is forcing the water down. Since the water now cannot escape up the stoppered side, it has nowhere to go but down, forcing the clog out with it.

When my dishwasher drains both sides of sink fill with water...then they both eventually drain back into the dishwasher.


Sounds like your sink drain trap or line is clogged. When the dishwasher drains, the sink drain can't keep up, the water backs up, then backs down the dishwasher drain line into the dishwasher. You may not notice the slow line when you run a little water into the sink, but with the amount of water coming from the dishwasher the problem is worse. You can try taking off the trap under the sink and making sure it's clear. If the problem is farther down the drain line, you can try snaking it yourself, or call a plumber. I don't recommend using Liquid Plumr or Drano because if those don't work, they leave the line full of caustic chemicals for the next person who works on it. That can be dangeerous.

I put too much carrot skins down the disposal , the blades turn but the water will not drain


You have to take apart the tubular drain pipes located under sink.
It will be fun.

Here's some do-it-yourself information to save calling plumber.
Take apart tubular pipes and clean them out.
Take a photo of the drain before starting. Take other photo as needed for facebook.
Once pipes are apart, run water or use coat hanger to clean out disposal.
Not necessary to take disposal out.

1) Tubular pipes connect to disposal.
Each tubular pipe has a nut and washer.
Pipes can be metal with rubber washer.
Pipes can be plastic with plastic washer.

2) Tubular pipes come apart with channels locks
geno_3245_91.jpg

3) You need a bucket to catch the water when you take apart tubular pipes.
Keep towel handy.

4) All tubular pipes that get moved while working under sink have to be taken apart, cleaned and re-assembled. All you do is take them apart, clean them out, clean them up, and re-assemble the same way they came apart.

5) Take a photo of the drain assembly before starting. Always start with the P-trap shown image above. Loosen top nut and lift up nut. Next, loosen tubular pipe that connects to disposal. and see it can lift out of P-trap without moving any of the other pipes. If clog is inside p-trap, then p-trap will have to come off. Try not to move any other drain pipes; any drain pipe that gets moved will start to leak and needs to be taken apart, cleaned and re-assembled.

6) For best results:
After clog is removed,
Clean all tubular pipes and washers before re-assembly. Take photos as you go so you know where each part goes.
Plastic washers are re-used.
Flat part of plastic washer fits against nut, tapered part away from nut.
Rubber washers can be re-used depending on age >> new rubber washers are best.

7) To re-seal tubular pipes first-time every-time, use rectorseal on rubber or plastic washers.
As you are re-assembling, smear healthy amount over entire washer and then tighten the nut.
Wipe off excess on outside of pipe.

Clogged Sink, Disposal On Takes Water Down, Off, Spurts Back Up


I agree it definitly is not your garbage disposal. You could try to use a liquid drain cleaner, but in my experience those do not work all that well, especially on the type of problem that you are having. If in fact you can not take apart your P-trap, (it shouldn't be a S trap), you should look for some type of a clean out cover under the sink or in the basement (if you have one). If there is another fixture down line, or for that matter up line, are you having problems there? It is possible that you have a clogged pipe under the sink. Unfortunatly if you can not disassemble, you (or a hired prof) will have to cut under the sink to find the problem. Hope this helps

American Standard Sink Drain


I would recommend getting and installing a better quality basket strainer that has a thicker "lip". Also, you need a good amount of plumbers putty underneath the lip of the basket strainer as well. Try not to use silicone to seal under it, it doesn't stand up to use. I would purchase a solid brass strainer rather than the thin stainless ones. They are more expensive, but are worth the money.

Dishwasher not rince & when cycle ends not clear water remains


check the drain connection where it connect to the sink these are bad to clog. In your case it may be a partial clog also check for any kinks in the drain line.make sure your line go above the connection point and then back down .This will stop water from flowing from the sink.
You can take apart the pump usually torx screws and remove any debris. Do this last

Dishwasher did not drain all the water


Your sink drain is clogged and the back pressure is not allowing the dishwasher to drain competely. Do not use a liquide drain cleaner, it will damage your disposal. take apart p-trap hopefully the clog is there, otherwise the line will need to be snaked.
