Re: hooking carbage disposal to diswashing not sure where...
Waste line from dishwasher to waste connects to one of
small spigot on extension pipe above the disposal up high under counter
small spigot on side of disposal directly above sewer connection, below blade
small spigot on sewer line below disposal, but above U trap
at the dishwasher end, the hose connects to the pump output, under the base of the dishwasher, usually left side of center, there is no external spigot
you have to run the waste line under from the back, and connect from the front , by removing the kick plate under the door opening

Is sink drain line clogged? Disconnect drain line at sink tailpiece and lower down to see if water inside dishwasher drains. Call serviceman to clear clog in dishwasher hose, or repair dishwasher pump motor.
Make sure the garbage disposal is working, if it is not then it will not allow the dishwasher to drain. Also make sure there is not blockage in the intake port on the disposal where the hose connects itself. If you installed a new disposal, there is a knockout that must be struck out inside the connection port.
If you have an "air gap" installed (next to the faucet which looks like a small cup upside down, it may be gunked up, remove and clean, or replace it)
If the hose came inside the dishwasher did you install it on the proper port on the dishwasher pump, many have two and one is blocked off. (it is unlikely but depending on the amount of water and the type of subflooring under the machine, it could have pumped out unnoticed and drained through a wiring hole). Hope this is helpful
lets start with the easy things. first you havent replaced your disposer recently and forgot to remove plug if you did remove plug in disposer if you didnt then i would check your drain hose were it hooks up to disposer or plumbing under sink. remove hose and inspect for garbage, gunk. may want to put gloves on. we use a screwdriver to clean out, clean hose and hole were hose hooks up to disposer. also hook up a vacuumm to hose and let it **** out for a minute or two something could be clogged halfway in hose. if all this does not help then something is defenitly wrong with dishwasher. open door remove 1/4 inch screws holding covers in rear , take covers out and inspect for something clogging if nothing then id say u have a bad pump roughly 69.99-189.99 for part dependeing on were you live and who you use labor 85-165.00. hope the easy things work out.
If this draining most of the water but not all of it, This could very well be the drain hose is clogged or getting that way. This will sometimes be in the hose itself and you can clear this by unhooking it from the carbage disposal and blowing through it. The caseing on your disposal is aluniumn and will corode easly in damp and dirty situations. Right place right time. This is the best bet for your problem, while you have your hose off the disposal chech where it hooks to the unit it is a natural restriction and will collect junk and start to corrode. Useing a tooth pick or bamboo skuer dig around in there and make sure it is clear, But be very careful of the caseing on your desposal, depending on age if this is the problem then the caseing is getting tired as well and can break very easly. so be careful. I hope this helps. Good luck
First off, you need a hot water feed line for your dishwasher, not cold water
Secondly, if you have a garbage disposal installed on your sink you canconnect the dishwasher drain hose to the side port on the garbage disposal. That's what that little port is for anyway. If you do have a garbage disposal and hook the dishwasher hose to it then make sure you take a hammer and screw driver and knock out the little plastic plug that's inside the garbage disposal port before hooking up the hose to it, if you don't you'll flood your kitchen.
If you don't have a garbage disposal on your sink, then you're going to have to replace a piece of your sink's drain piping with a wye (Y) tailpiece. The tailpiece has a small branch that comes off it to where you canconnect the dishwasher drain hose.
Regardless of which way you hook up the drainage and water lines, make sure you test out the work you did by running the dishwasher and keeping an eye on it. I can't tell you the number of times i've seen people hook up stuff like this and not test it and then when they go to use the dishwasher it floods the kitchen..... usually when people are sleeping at night. Test your work.
there is always a little water in all dishwashers. Sounds like to me that you may have a kinked drain hose or maybe the way you have hooked the drain up. The drain hose should go to a vacuum break that is mounted on the sink flange and then another hose goes to the disposal. If you have the hose hooked directly to the disposal you may be getting water back from the sink to the dw. raise the hose up as high as possible and attach under the sink so there is a high loop in your hose so water cannot drain back from the sink
The drain hose is supposed to go from the garbage disposal to a high point under the sink in back to keep the water from gravity draining into the dishwasher when it shuts off. If you look you will see that the hose is laying on the bottom of the sink cabinet. Get a hook and wire it up so you're not washing dishes with water from the disposer. Be sure to run the disposer. if it is clogged with food the dishwasher will not drain, water will back up and drain back into the dishwasher. Also make sure that the pipe exiting the disposer isn't clogged and draining slowly. hhe best solution is to have an air gap that mounts on the sink. It goes between the washer and the disposer to keep this from happening.
the smaller hose should be 3/8" is the water feed the larger hose is the discharge. you can open the front panel (2 torks screws) and you will see the water inlet valve in the left towards the center the electrial box is on the far right ten determine which hose you have for the fill under the sink...You will need a disposal or a tee off the plumbing to connect the discharge hose and a 3/8" off the HOT side of you sink plumbing to connect it Let me know what you find
the plastic drain hose goes either to the sink drain plumbing either to the pvc pipe or the disposer.
there is a electrical junction box on the right side where you hard wire the unit in
there is the inlet valve on the Left side of the lower axcess panels where you hook the water supply
