Three points to ck. !) make sure disposer is plugged in under ther the sink. 2) Make sure the circuit breaker at the breaker panel has not tripped. 3) Make sure disposal is off and make sure it is not jammed, 3) Press reset breaker located on bottom of unit (red button.) Then try wall switch again.

see this causes and proceed according. God bless you
Belt, Water Pump Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Drain Solenoid Kit If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.
Drain Valve The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable Pump and Motor Assembly If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.

Check Valve If the dishwasher won't drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a small plastic device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

Check Ball If the dishwasher won't drain the check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

Garbage disposal won't stop running


Check switch. replace switch. If switch checks out, then replace disposal to avoid risk of overheating and in-wall short.

Garbage disposal seems to work **** water down put when you turn the swich off water come back into the sink fast


You have some type of obstruction in your drain. There is enough force to push the water in the drain, perhaps even raising the level up into the vent line. When you switch off the disposal, then it rushes back into the shink. Disconnect drain line and run a snake into the drain.

Water is dripping out of the bottom of my kitchenaid kadette 250 1/2 HP disposal. Is there a fix?


If the leak is coming from the bottom of the disposal check the sink connection, drain connection, and housing gasket. If you find these are all good and you can see the water is definitely coming from the disposal itself and not from any of these connections, then the internal seal in the disposal is bad and will need to be replaced. If the disposal is over a few years old then it is more than likely best to just replace the unit. Not cost effective to have it repaired.

Removing knockout from KitchenAid Kadette 250 disposer


Hi, You need to punch out the plug from the outside. The plug will fall into the disposal and you can reach in to remove it.
I use a small screw driver and punch through the plug in a few spots to weaken the plug. This will allow the plug to release easier.
Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Remove the hose from the disposal, take a hammer and long screw driver, put it in the hole where the hose attaches and knock the plug out. Turn power off to the disposer and pull the plug out of the disposer. Hope this helps.
