Question about Home
I put the disposal on and a wash cloth had slipped into the drain. It is now stuck. Is there a way to release the blades and turn them in reverse/
Yes, you will need to get a disposal wrench, one would have come with diposal new. If you cant find one, one can be bought at hardware store. On bottom of disposal in center you should see a hole, the wrench will fit there. Turn counter clockwise. This should free up wash cloth.

Testimonial: "I found the allen wrench opening and it did free the washcloth, but now the unit hums and is leaking. It seems to be leaking from the reset button."
