Disconnect the drain pipe where it connects to the disposer and remove the P trap where the pipe goes into the wall to remove the blockage .

SOURCE: garbage disposal doesn't drain
Sometimes what happens is that when they install a garbage disposal the pipe coming out of it ends up being lower than the pipe exiting the pea trap thru the wall under the sink. If it is a dual kitchen sink this is very common. Being lower than the exiting pipe causes water to stay in the bottom of the disposal and not just the pea trap. If you have a side by side sink in the kitchen and the water is backing up in the other sink also then more than likely the pea trap has a blockage. It is not common for the straight line from the pea trap going thru the wall to become blocked, but it does sometimes happen. The biggest cause of this is poring hot grease down the drain. It is just about the point that it cools enough, sticks and hardens plugging the drain pipe.
You probably should have a plumber look at it and make sure everything is running downhill under the sink. The only place that water should set in the plumbing is in the pea trap so that odor from the sewer does not come up into the house. Without actually seeing it, it is hard to tell exactly what is happening. The pea trap is easy to clean, put a really big pan under the trap, make sure you have emptied as much water out of the sink as you can, then with a big pair of channel locks unscrew the two nuts that hold the pea trap in place and let the fluid drain from it, then finish unscrewing it from the pipe. You can then clean it out and check the pipe thru the wall for blockage. When reassembling it, screw it all together loosely and then move the pieces around while hand tightening each joint so the they have no pressure on them, then use the channel locks to finish tightening the nuts. Don't over tighten them because they have nylon seals in them that compress to make the seal. Just tight enough to seal and not leak. You should be up and running again unless the plug-up is farther down the wall pipe. Good Luck, RAC

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

sound's like you have a problem with your drain pipe's. it is not normal for water to come back up.check the allen key bolt, located on the bottom of unit .insert allen wrench /key,and turn in a clock wise&counter clockwise motion to see if disposal is jammed.you also might consider some drain opener before it get's worse

Your dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal. It you tried to use a plunger to clear your clogged sink or run the disposal with to much junk in it you may have force debris into the dishwasher drain hose. With both the dishwasher and garbage disposal disconnect from power disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the garbage disposal. This is usually about a one inch black hose. Clear out any debris in the hose and inlet nipple on the garbage disposal. If debris is compacted far down the hose it will need to be disconnected from the dishwasher end and remove to clear the blockage.
