SOURCE: how to unstop kitchen sink with disposal. I have a septic system. water goes down one side and up the other side.

Yes. I am familiar with these.
You or someone will be needing to take a large bucket or some pans and put them under the sink and undo all the pipes and the drains and the garbage disposal.
You will find a plugged up pipe.
I have already unplugged my daughter's about 10 times in the last 10 years.
Usually, the problem is she has put something down the sink she shouldn't have.
Example: Egg shells. Will not wash down. Rough silage: Clogs pipes.
When you get it apart, you will likely identify the product causing the problem.
God bless your efforts.

Why does kitchen sink drain water from drain side to garbage disposal side


The two drains are connected, but below the disposal. Likely if it's not draining down, you still have a clog, and the person the "cleared" the drain didn't.

I bought a new kitchen sink and pipes with a garbage disposal. Over night the smell in the garbage disposal is like rotten eggs! How can I make it smell good?


Use hydrogen peroxide and/ white vinegar to safely deodorize disposal.
Clean out drain line under sink, and bottom of disposal under cutter blade.
Copy following link for clogged disposal, and drain line tips.

Newer Maytag dishwasher smells really bad inside


This problem can normally be fixed very simply and you can do it yourself.
1. There is a flexible drain line that goes from dishwasher to the sink drain line or garbage disposer.
2 You will find this flexible drain underneath the kitchen sink.
3. Make sure that the flexible dishwasher drain line goes up above the sinks lower portion of the sink basin and then comes back down into the sinks drain line or grabage disposer. The dishwasher flexible drain line must go above the bottom of sink basin like an upside down u shape, it will act as a upside down p-trap that you see under the sink in the sink drainline.
4. Once you have the flexible dishwasher drain line in this configuration (upside down U shape or p-trap) it will prevent air from leaking out of the dishwasher as the smell you are smelling is coming from the drian line.
5. You should also look inside the bottom of dishwasherr to make sure the drain screen is not clogged up.

The dishwasher just stopt emptieing top first then bottom


This could be due to a block in the kitchen drain.

Have you checked if there is no garbage disposal unit in sink which has not been turned on.

Alternatively, take the drain hose from under the sink plumbing and drain straight into the the sink with some support. But this may be hard if the dishwasher is built into the cabinet.

Can you install a garbage disposal in a corner undermount sink


Are we concerned about the distance between the bottom of the sink and the bottom of the cabinet?

I have installed a lot of disposals on under-mount sinks and I have found the the Badger company has a 1/3 hp unit that is quite short. It may seem a bit small but we need to remember that disposals are not made to chop wood.......1/3 is plenty strong for a person who uses their head when shoving food sown it. Their 1/2 hp unit might also work.

They are available at Lowes and Home Depot for around $60.

Hope this helps

Foul odor coming from kitchen sink/dishwasher area????


Hi Jenny - I had a terrible smell coming from under my sink, and I too thought it was a dishwasher/garbage disposal drainage issue. I used vinegar, baking soda, bleach and hot water on a daily basis. When I cut out the wallboard from under the sink and the smell got even worse, however, there was no sign of any water leaks or evidence of a dead animals. Come to find out, when I had a "friend" cut out a pass through from my kitchen (above the sink) into the den, he cut the pvc exhaust pipe and didn't re-route it nor cap allowing the fumes to escape outside via the attic. Thus, the fumes had no place to go other than down. The smell confused me because I thought it was rotten food or most likely a dead mouse trapped between the wall. The smell was actually causing me to get headaches. It's been almost 24 hours that this was repaired and I already can "smell" the difference. I hope this helps! Good luck.

SHU43 Bosch Built-in dishwasher


Try running citric acid (3 tablespoons) through.
You can get it from a drug store.
Or, run 1/2 cup vinegar through.
Do this in both the dish washer and the disposal.
After doing this try running some water into the disposal and then see if the next time you run the dishwasher if it still smells.
You could be having a problem with water not staying in the drain trap under your sink that is why if you run water and fill the trap, then you will find out if it was the dry trap that caused the smell from sewer gases backing up into the house trough the garbage disposal.

Bad smell


It sounds like your dishwasher does not have an air gap. Newer dishwashers come with an air gap installed, but they can be taken out. A quick fix for this is to:

Check the drain line under the kitchen sink. The drain line is supposed to run from the bottom of the cabinet, and run as high in the cabinet as you can get, (up to the bottom of the counter top) then connect the drain. This is called an air gap, and helps keep a little water in the drain line, which will prevent sewer gases from entering your dishwasher, and garbage disposal.



Please rate this solution.
