Question about GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher
After I put a lot of cranberries through the disposal after christmas I noticed the water was draining slowly. So I ran the disposal and as soon as I turned it off, the water shot up like a geyser and drained very slowly back. I opened up the trap and no debris. This problem resolved itself spontaneously (although the water drained slower than it had prior to the incident). Then last night I put some mozzerella cheese in the disposal (2 large balls) and it started doing the geyser thing again. The only way the sink drains is if the disposal is running then it does it's geyser act again when shut off and the water that has backed up into the sink sits there. Any suggestions? The disposal is less than 4 years old and was a middle of the line model.
Hello, turn on the disposal without water and pour hot water into disposal. Be careful not to let it splash back on you! If this doesn't help you have to remove the drain and drain trap and clean them out. If you need more help let me know. Good luck.

Check the p-trap drain pipe. It's probably clogged.
It's not a good idea to put foodstuffs like you described in the garbage disposal. It's hard on the waste treatment plants, and not good for your sewer lines as these types of items will clog your pipes. The cranberries are somewhat OK, bu the cheese is a definite no-no.
Garbage disposals are intended for grinding the food left remaining on plates. Not for cleaning out the refrigerator or throwing out old/bad food.
