SOURCE: How to knock out garbage disposal plug

Turn off the power source to the garbage disposal. Take the drain hose from the dishwasher off the connector going to the disposal (if connected). Insert a flat blade screwdriver in the drain hose fitting and tap a few times with a hammer. The plastic plug will pop off inside the garbage disposal. Reach inside from the top of the disposal to retrieve the plastic plug. Sometimes you have to use a little force to tap the plug out. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: New Garbage disposal, washing machine and dishwasher won't work.

Does not sound like these problems are directly related to the disposer. Grinding sound is most likely the impeller on the washer's pump. The washer gets to the first pump out and is unable to pump due to bad impeller or an obstruction. Bad impeller means replace pump motor. (not very hard) Check water supply to dishwasher. Valve turned off or line kinked? Filter screen at solonoid valve plugged?

SOURCE: BADGER GARBAGE DISPOSAL just humms. does not work.

It sounds like the disposer has something jamming it. Try using the breaker wrench supplied with the disposer (or a suitable-size hex wrench) fitted into the socket on the bottom. Rock the wrench back and forth to see if you can loosen the jam. Another trick is to use a wooden rod (end of a broom handle, for example) to push on the blade to try dislodging the jam. Look inside with a flashlight to see if there is something that is easily missed. (I have found drink can tabs, coins and a shelf clip that way.)

It's also possible the motor starting capacitor inside the disposer or the motor itself is bad, in which case you would probably spend less on a new disposer than on repairing this one. But a jam is more likely.

SOURCE: Removing dishwasher drain plug on a new garbage disposal.

The plug is thin plastic. Use a flat blade screw driver and a hammer to knock it out. I know this sounds primitive but this is how it is done. I have been a plumber for thirty years.

should have came with a alen key use it. to loosen the blades that are stuck on the bottom of the gaburator theree should be a hole in the middle. Just fine a alen key that fits in the hole and turn it around and then turn it on should solve your problem

It fills with water and nothing happens


It can be disheartening to open your Whirlpool Gold dishwasher and find that the device is full of dirty water that has not drained from a previous cycle. Although you certainly would rather have no problems, having a problem with the washing machine not draining as well as it should is one of the easiest-remedied problems to have. Fixing this problem doesn't require you to pay a repairman; you should be able to do it yourself.
Open the cabinet under the sink.

  • 2 Unscrew the clamp that is holding the drain hose to the garbage disposal valve.
  • 3 Insert a screwdriver into the valve opening and tap the handle of the screwdriver with a hammer. Doing this will remove the knockout plug from the opening. The knockout plug is designed to be used for garbage disposals that are not connected to dishwashers. People often fail to remove the knockout plug when installing a dishwasher to the disposal.
  • 4 Insert tongs into the top of the garbage disposal opening and remove the knockout plug from the device.
  • 5 Replace the drain hose and screw the clamp back into place.

    My garbage disposal got plugged up then my dishwasher backed up and will not drain how do i fix this and are the two things related?


    The disposal has a port that connects to the dishwasher. If the disposal clogs, the dishwasher cannot drain. There should be a 5/16 hex hole in the center of the underside
    of the disposal to use a "wrenchette" disposal wrench to free the disposal. Or just use a
    5/16 allen wrench. After freeing unit up, push the red square reset button on the bottom of the disposal. It should now work at the switch.

    On some smaller disposals you may need a "universal"
    disposal wrench that works from the top of the disposal. The reset is still located on
    the bottom of the unit though. They cost around 10 dollars at the home improvement
    store. Hope this is helpful.

    The dishwasher is not draining properly and there seems to be lots of suds although the detergent packet was not used during the normal washing cycle.


    If your dishwasher is connected to a garbage disposal and not used frequently and you
    hand wash dishes on the disposal side, the soap that is used for hand washing dishes
    accumulates in the dishwasher when you pull the stopper. This soap sudses excessively in
    the dishwasher when it is run. This happens quite frequently in the apartments I service.
    I have to put in several pans of water and turn the timer till it pumps out several times.

    Also, make sure the disposal is working properly or the dishwasher will not drain and dish
    water will back up into the dishwasher. There is usually a 5/16 allen socket to free
    the disposal located under it in the very center of the disposal as well as a small red sqare
    reset button once the unit is freed up. Make sure switch is off at wall before attempting
    service.
    hope this helps.

    Water does not drain completely down


    Since the drain pump will pump the water out using the "cancel/drain" button, if it did not work then your problem is likely to be in the drain hose system or the garbage disposal downstream from the drain pump. Check for kinks in clogs in the drain hose. Grease can build up in the portion of the drain hose just before it attaches to the garbage disposal.

    Disposal wont work


    The reset button might be around the back, depending on which side the outlet is located on. It takes quite a good push to reset it.
