Question about Ace Hardware InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal
How do I get the plug out of my disposal so that I can connect the dishwasher hose
From the dishwasher hose end of the nipple, insert a large flathead screwdriver or nutdriver and tap it with a hammer. They sometimes take a moderatly strong hit. It is litterally nothing but a plastic plug.
You will want to do this with the disposal uninstalled and the power disconected.
(doing it installed can potentially cause leaks.)
Make sure that you remove the little plastic plug that was knocked out from the inside of the disposal.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
