Sometimes it works if I wiggle it and other times it's like no connection is being made. Tried cleaning the surface with cometand still no luck. Any suggestions?

There is a metal conduit around a wire with an L shaped plug on the end.

This plug fits into the disposal, from underneath on the outside, so that the end faces the "gismo" which magnetically closes the connection.

Get under the sink and pull it out and examine it. If it looks OK put it back in as far as it goes. If this does not work you need to replace this part.

When dishwasher is emptying it is backing into sink


there is probably nothing wrong with Dishwasher itself.
Your Sink drain is stopped up or your Garbage disposal is clogged.
usually, dishwasher drain is connected to the Garbage Disposal, but if the dishwasher empties the water into the Garbage disposal, if its clogged then water will come out of the sink. Same if sink is clogged between sink and sewer.


If you fill up your sink and then water drains away, then you know your sink itself is not the problem. If its only the Garbage disposal side that does not drain, its the garbage disposal that is clogged.

Maytag dishwasher won't drain


Drainage problem of some sort is usually the cause. Could be blockage before your drain pump, in your drain pump, or in your drain hose. One possibility is that you just installed a garbage disposal and forgot to remove the "knock-out" plug for the dishwasher drain line. Another cause can be that you have not looped your dishwasher drainline under your sink and water from your sink is flowing back into you dishwasher. You must attach your dishwasher drain line under your sink so it is higher then your sink drain lines, creating a trap for your dishwasher. Your drain sump could be plugged, not letting the water get to your drain pump easily. This is caused by not getting loose or hard debris off your dishes before putting them in the unit. Also make sure your drain pump is getting the right voltage when it is supposed to.God bless youfa618d8b-d0fd-412a-b0d5-a88d44bf89d3.giffb1320dc-7bec-4cb0-98ed-c24cf54e5e3b.jpg

We bought a new dishwasher because the old one wasn't draining all the way. Same problem with the new one?


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.

I have an old Maytag dishwasher, which came with the home we purchased 20 years ago. i am wondering how water efficient it is; it still works, but I also frequently find it with dirty water which has...


It is as efficient as any dishwasher made today. It is also mechanically better than most made today. Keep it running as long as you can.
Under the sink find the dishwasher drain line,using a piece of wire or string tie the DW hose up under the sink so that there is a rise in the hose from the disposal drain outlet.This way drain water will not go back down the hose.

UNsermount sink with waste disposal


The easy mount disposal has a ring the (sort of) screws onto the insinkerator sink drain - the thing that is labeled insinkerator when you look down into the sink.

If this is a new install on a new sink, I recommend the EZ mount model. If there is already the sink drain (thing mentioned above) labeled insinkerator, you may be able to simply attach the new disposal to the existing drain ring.

Also: If you have a dishwasher to connect, this is a great time to install the "air gap valve" (available for almost free at any hardware store.)

Dishwasher fills with water when running faucet


The drain hose from the dishwasher should exit the dishwasher, then head up to the nderside of the counter top, before heading back down to connect to the disposal drain connection.

If the drain hose doesn't do this, the dishwasher is improperly installed, and clean dishes risk being contaminated, which can cause people to become ill.

Dishwasher does not drain


If you cannot get the diswasher to drain there is some obstruction in the drain line going to the disposal. First turn the power off to the diswasher at the breaker panel then open doors under sink and follow drain line to the disposal there you will find a hose clamp(silver) that you must loosten with a flat blade screw driver ( get a bucket under the disposal) pull the drain line loose and dump out excess water and debris inspect area going into the disosal to make shure it is not clogged up

reverse your proceedure and reconnect the drain

Before trying the dishwasher take some ice cubes and run thewater then put in disposal and turn on that should clean the disposal

try your dishwasher I forgot to mention that theri is a strainer at the bottom of you dishwasher that you can remove to be sure it is not clogged up I assume that you have aready checked that

good luck
