You probably have a restriction in your drain down line of the sink-our sink does this because of the size of the discharge hose we run out to the garden to use the water for the garden-so you may want to have a plumber snake out your line-cheers Denny

The kitchen sink faucet is clogged


If it just the hot or just the cold then it will be the shutoff valve not the faucet. replace the valve/s under the sink Try checking the screen in the head of the faucet for sand. If it does not have a screen(some dont) then it will have a restrictor usually green in color that may have debris inside of it.

The hose detached from the garbage disposal. I re-attached it and now the water can't pump out of the bottom of the dishwasher


You have a clogged drain, remove the sink trap and use a plumber's snake to unstop the clog. Reattach the trap under the sink and disposal should drain. The pressure from the dishwasher pump more than likely caused the drain to slip loose, it's a drain, and it should not have any backpressure.

Overflow draining to the sink


it's supposed to drain out the same drain pipe your sink uses. If it is overflowing into your sink, then your drain pipe is clogged. Your sink probably overflows when your disposal runs too, right? Unclog your pipe and you're good to go.
