It is likely that the drain is clogged. It will have to be cleaned.

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.

When dishwasher is emptying it is backing into sink


there is probably nothing wrong with Dishwasher itself.
Your Sink drain is stopped up or your Garbage disposal is clogged.
usually, dishwasher drain is connected to the Garbage Disposal, but if the dishwasher empties the water into the Garbage disposal, if its clogged then water will come out of the sink. Same if sink is clogged between sink and sewer.


If you fill up your sink and then water drains away, then you know your sink itself is not the problem. If its only the Garbage disposal side that does not drain, its the garbage disposal that is clogged.

plug the one side of the sink so as to create a sealed enviroment for the plunger to work weffectively ... plung the open side ..
If this does not work , try running a metal coat hanger thru the outlet at the disposal exhaust line.

I have a Badger 5xp & a double sink. When I turn the disposal on I get a small eruption of water, air and disposed of debris from the other drain.


Take apart the tubular drain pipes beneath sink and clean out everything.
Take photos before removing pipes so parts go back together easily.
Loosen 2 nuts on trap, and trap falls loose.
Remove 2 bolts/screws and remove tailpiece from side of disposal.
Then run snake down drain line leading away from sink to make sure blockage is removed.

I wrote ez disposal steps that give tips on reconnecting tubular drain pipes:

Here is an interesting problem. We have a Badger 5 1/2 Hp Garbage disposal hooked up on left side of double sink. The Disposer runs, spins, but will NOT drain.. at all. Left sink with the insinkerator will...


If this connects into a tee between the sinks, usually if the tee is in the middle of sinks, then often there is a divider in the tee to keep water from backing up the other drain. Remove the tee and inspect to be sure it isn't cloggged. Also put a bucket under the outlet. Try running it this way, if you get good flow you know the disposal is working

My dishwasher backed up into my kitchen sink , it was about 30 minutes into a 2 hour wash cycle--i drained the diswasher, but 1 inch stayed in it till this morning, the sink drained on its on


It sounds like an issue with the sink drain rather than the dishwasher. Many dishwashers are connected to a double sink, one bay of which contains a garbage disposal. If yours is connected in that configuration, run the disposal to clear any food debris that may still be present while running the HOT water into the disposal.

If you have no disposal or if the dishwasher is connected to the other non-disposal bay, check the sink drain again for proper drainage.

The easiest way to do this is to put a plug in the drain (both sides, one at a time), then fill the sink about half way with luke warm water. Then reach in and pull the plug from each side, watching to see how each side drains, but especially the side with the dishwasher connected. If it's slow draining, focus your efforts on clearing the drain on that particlular side of the sink. Try a plunger first before resorting to other methods to clear the sink. If you plunge the dishwasher side, get underneath the sink and pinch off the discharge line from the dishwasher if possible. A pair of vise grips works well, but don't overtighten them.

Some dishwashers have a soft disposal that can eject enough ground up particles into a sink to cause plugging up over time, especially if the dishwasher empties into the disposal side.

How do you clean out a clogged drain hose from the garbage disposal to the dishwasher?


You may have to pull the dishwasher out and remove the clamp on the hose from the pump. run a snake or a coat hanger or anything else that you be long, flexible but stiff enough to move through the drain. You might be able to go from the disposal side back to the drain. This would be easier if you can. If you run water down the disposal side does it back up into the sink? If it does, then the clog is down below the disposal and not the dishwasher side.

Water draining backinto dishwasher from garbage disposal


You have a clog where the drain pipe leaves the garbage disposal that isn't draining fast enough or not at all. Or it could be a clog in the dishwasher drain hose where it connects onto the disposal.

Kenmore Ultra Wash III Dishwasher will not drain properly


From the sound of things, your dishwasher drains faster than your sink drain ( via the garbage disposal) can drain it off.. You may have a problem with the way your sink drain/trap is vented and there is too much back pressure to drain down quickly.. When you run water from your sink, does it take a long time to drain down or if you fill your sink up and drain it, does it drain slowly ? That may be your problem.. Hope that helps.
