Installed vent? Dishwashers drain directly into the sink drain line. Drain can be installed in cross over between sink drains or on line from sink drain.

Odour from only kitchen sink No food trapped plumber says pipes &vent syst in proper work order plumb is stumped 6 mos ago same thing happen pipes & trap under sink were changed house is 3 yr old


Presuming that the proper traps are installed, your issue may be related to flow. Sometimes, a run that is too steep causes so much flow that the water gets removed from the sink p-trap and will remove water from there.

To test, pour a some water down the sink, the next time that you smell sewer gasses. If that stops it, investigate why the water is being drawn away. You might consider an additional air vent, as a diagnostic tool.

Bathroom sink smells strongly like sewer when water runs fast.


Suppose you plugged the drain of the sink and filled the basin with water, then removed the plug. I must think that only after the basin empties you would get the sewer smell, and the smell would persist until you slowly ran some more water. If you try this, and this is the result, then the problem is that the sewer vent (that is supposed to prevent the water in the trap under the sink from being sucked down the drain) is not working right. If this is a new problem then you may be able to clear what is probably a blocked vent pipe. If this bathroom has always had this problem, then you have a poorly designed or executed vent pipe setup that you can only fix it with some surgery to your plumbing. However, to clean the vent you can try pouring a good bit of drain cleaner down the vent pipe on the roof, followed by water. But because there may be several vent pipes sharing the same vent stack out the roof, the drain cleaner may not get to your blockage and may simply go down a different path. Good luck.

I unclogged the GD by removing the pipes underneath and replaced them tightly. GD seems to be working fine now, but water is slowly leaking from underneath the GD! It appears to be leaking from the...


The leak comes from above where water comes out.

Turn off power before touching wet electrical appliance.

Put stopper in disposal.
Fill sink with water.
Check if water is getting through the putty seal at sink connection.

Next, check if water leaks only when dishwasher runs. Dishwasher drains into garbage disposal.

Last, check tailpiece where it attaches to side of garbage disposal. The tailpiece is usually sealed with a rubber washer. When washer is old, it gets deformed, and then it doesn't seal perfectly when put back.

I use rectorseal on all tubular pipe joints under the sink.
Works on both plastic and rubber washers.
It is gooey and sticky.
Brush it all over the washer, use plenty, then assemble pipes.
The rectorseal assures that joint will not leak.

The waste line from the dishwasher should connected straight to the garbage disposal. there is a hole in the side where it fits. Be sure to knock out the plug in the disposal, or the water will back up and stay in the dishwasher.

Installation after moving/ water not going in


In order to move one of the new front loading machines, the shipping bolts/supports that originally came installed with the unit must be in place to prevent damage. At this point you can attempt to make repairs yourself or, if under warranty, calling a authorized repair center for repairs. The warranty will not cover damage due to moving the machine without the bolts/supports, however having a authorized service center make the repairs will keep the remaining warranty intact.

Sewer Gass after using Bocsh 300 washer


When you have problems with sewer gas smells around a
fixture, there can be a number of causes.
1. Sewer gas coming back up into the home
a. Blocked vent.
b. No vent.
2. Leaking drains that cause rotting below the floor.
3. Moisture that causes mold buildup.
4. No trap on your sink.
5. One roof vent on septic system.
6. Toilet needs to be reset and calked.

Sewer gas can come back up into your home, when the
trap completely empties after a letting the water out
of a fixture, when the trap dries out, or when it is
sucked out by another fixture flushing. When water
goes into a pipe, it first has to push the air ahead
of it, if there is no place for it to go, it comes up
the trap. This causes a buildup of pressure if there
is no vent.

If there is a vent, the pressure is relieved up to the
roof, carrying with it all of the yucky smells. When
the water runs down the drain, the air behind it has
to be replaced, if its not, the pipes will try to ****
it from some drain...typically the shower drain, but
sometimes the floor drain when its close to a washer.
When vacuum draws air in through the trap on the
laundry tub it also takes the water out of the trap,
leaving an opening where the sewer gasses can come
back up from the septic system .

Think about your pipes as if they are a drinking
straw. When you put a straw into a glass of water,
the water fills the straw. But if you put your thumb
over the end of the straw and pull it out of the
water, the water (or liquid) stays in the straw. This
shows you, air has volume. When you remove your thumb
from the end of the straw, the water flows back into
the glass. This is the principal of a vent.

So if you only have the smell when a fixture is
running, the trap is refilling after the fixture and
blocking the sewer gasses from coming into the home,
but your vent is probably not functioning.
In addition, if you have only one vent up through the
roof on a septic system, you can get sewer gas smells
coming up through your home. As the wind blows
across the roof, it pressurizes the plumbing system.
Since the septic tank is full of water, the wind
cannot go into the septic tank. So it bubbles up through the
traps into the house. Installing a vent on an
opposing roof pitch, helps to relieve the pressure buildup,
since the wind then is only hitting one side of the
roof.

Floor drains are succeptable to this type of pressure.

If your drains are partially clogged it can work
similar to a clogged vent. Since there is no place
for the water to go, it forces the air, which is much
lighter up through traps, bringing sewer gas into the
home.

If your fixture is not set right or is wabbling, the
traps or wax ring that seals it underneith may not be tight.
When this happens, if you empty the fixture, sewer gas
will come under the sink into the room.

Each of these senarios will require a different
solution. The key to solving your problem, is having
the right questions to ask when the plumber comes out
to look at it. The previous information should
provide you with a basis for the questions you need.

Make sure before you call a plumber to check
cleanout covers and pipes to see if they have
openings to the sewer. If you have an opening
without a trap, you will get sewer gasses.

In conclusion, if you don't have a vent inside the
wall which equalizes the air pressure inside the
pipes, if you are on a septic system with only
one roof vent, if the vent is clogged off due to
sludge and soap scum, if you don't have a proper trap
on your sink, or if the drain is clogged, sewer gas can escape
into your home.

Dishwasher draining into kitchen sink!


Is the water coming out the holes of the airgap "vent". If so, you have an obstruction from the hose that goes from the "vent" to the garbage disposer and is causing the drain water to back up. __________________
