How doI hook up to dishwasher - How do I remove the cap?

I had my new disposal hooked up but now my dishwasher empties on the floor...How can I remove the cap inside the disposal so the dishwasher will drain properly - I have already thrown out the directions. I tried to punch the cap in but *** wouldn't bugde - Looks like it needs to be taken out somehow...Thanks

You're already on the right path of doing what needs to be done. you have to use a long flat screw driver (or anything small and long enough to reach the knock-out) and punch/knock out the drain plug of the garberator. once you knock it out, you'll have to remove the piece that comes out of the plug. it's best to do this with the unit out on a bench or something though. (although I never remove the unit from the sink, but I've been doing it a very long time now)

good luck

Why will my dishwasher Electrolux model #EIDW5905JS0A, not drain completely at the end of its cycle.


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EIDW5905JS, will not completely drain at the end of the cycle. It is not normal for water to remain in the bottom of the tub at the end of a cycle. If water remains in the bottom of the tub at the end of a cycle, the dishwasher may not be draining properly. Please follow these troubleshooting tips:

    1)If unit is hooked up to a garbage disposal, make sure the disposer is empty.

    2)If unit is hooked up to a new food waste disposer, check to see if the "knockout" plug located inside the disposal inlet has been removed.

    3)Check to see if drain hose is kinked.

    4)Make sure cycle is complete, not in a pause.


    I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best Regards-

Standing water in model FDB1050RESO frigidaire electrolux dishwasher 2005 model


Good Afternoon Friend,

I see that you have standing water in your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB105RES. I would suggest trying the troubleshooting tips below:

• If your appliance is hooked up to a food waste disposer, make sure the disposer is empty.

• Check to see if the knockout plug has been removed from inside the food waste disposer inlet.

• Check to see if the drain hose is kinked.

• Make sure the cycle is complete and not in a pause mode.

If you are still having trouble with your dishwasher not draining, I recommend contacting either the manufacturer or a local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

Water is sitting at bottum of dishwasher not draining very well and not washing well


you most likely have a partial blockage in the drain pump or the drain line that goes from the floor of the dishwasher to the sink drain. Disconnect those parts and look. remove whatever the block age is.

Water not draining whirlpool quiet partner ii


Remove the drain line where it hooks into the disposal. See if the plug, which must be removed to let water thru, is still in there. I ran into this on a service call a few years back. Removed to plug and voila! Hope this helps!

Hooking carbage disposal to diswashing not sure where it hooks on the dishwasher itself


Waste line from dishwasher to waste connects to one of
  • small spigot on extension pipe above the disposal up high under counter
  • small spigot on side of disposal directly above sewer connection, below blade
  • small spigot on sewer line below disposal, but above U trap
at the dishwasher end, the hose connects to the pump output, under the base of the dishwasher, usually left side of center, there is no external spigot
you have to run the waste line under from the back, and connect from the front , by removing the kick plate under the door opening
