Dble sink, one with the garbage disp. won't drain standing water

Have a double sink, the one with the garbage disposal will not drain standing water, but when you turn the garabge disposal on it pushes the water out and drains the sink quickly. It's just standing water that won't drain. each sink has it's own drain line but I'm not sure if the one with the garbage disposal has an air line up through the roof. The other sink drains standing water normally.
whats up?

It's a drain clog within the disposal. Try a drain cleaner, if no luck, you will likely need to replace it.

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.

Dishwasher won't run. Worked yesterday, checked curcuit breaker, ok. water is in the bottem of washer but below the float level.


First, check the dishwasher filter and make sure it isn't clogged. Your owner's manual will have simple instructions on how to access and clean your dishwasher's filter.

Next, check the drain hose. Does it look flattened or kinked? Do you see any sharp bends? If so, straighten out the hose with your hands and manipulate it so that it regains its rounded shape.

If your dishwasher drains through the garbage disposal, try running the garbage disposal for a bit to process and clear any food. If that does not get the machine draining, you may have a deeper clog. However, most drain hoses clog either at the main household sink drain line connection or the garbage disposal connection.

Does your dishwasher spray your dishes, but it does not advance to the next stage and drain the dirty water? The timer controls the start of the draining process, so you may need an entirely new timer or a new motor for the timer. Repair service is recommended.

In some dishwashers, standing water is caused by a valve that fails to open and allow the water to drain out. This valve is controlled a solenoid that the timer controls. A malfunctioning solenoid could be the problem.

For more troubleshooting tips and solutions, see Dishwasher not draining. I hope this helps!

Our sink and garbage disposal was clogged up. We got the sink unclogged, but the dishwasher had dirty water in the bottom and won't drain.


Your dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal. It you tried to use a plunger to clear your clogged sink or run the disposal with to much junk in it you may have force debris into the dishwasher drain hose. With both the dishwasher and garbage disposal disconnect from power disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the garbage disposal. This is usually about a one inch black hose. Clear out any debris in the hose and inlet nipple on the garbage disposal. If debris is compacted far down the hose it will need to be disconnected from the dishwasher end and remove to clear the blockage.

Good luck!

Won't drain. Water sits in bottom during all cycles. Water back up to sink.


Run your garbage disposal and sink water for a few minutes in case there is anything clogging the drain. Also look under your sink in case the drain hose is kinked. That hose might also be clogged but is a difficult job - maybe pro help is needed if you are not comfortable doing it yourself. Last option is that the pump is bad and must be replaced

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.

Can i connect my Hoover HD73M Dishwasher to a cold feed?


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 can connect 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 can connect 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.

    Bad smell


    smell is not the fault of the dishwasher but your waste disposal unit - they stink!

    it may be awkward, but arrange your drain so that there is a water barrier. better still. install a standpipe for the drain, again with a water barrier
