Question about Home
My sink is backing up on both sides all pipes and garbage disposal seem clear of obstructions. the hose for the dish washer it also clear.
If the sink is stopped up on both sides try putting the rubber stopper in on the side opposite the garbage disposal. Hold down the stopper and cut the disposal on for about 5 minutes. The pressure on one side will force the water down the drain and clear both sides. Worked like a charm! : )

Your drain line is clogged, beyond the sinks. You might be able to use a plunger to clear it. Seal off one the drains and use the plunger in the other. After you get it cleared, run pure hot water for a few minutes to melt the junk out of the line. When using the disposer, use cold water only, NEVER hot. If this doesn't get your drain flowing, you will have to snake the drain--to the main drain.

The drain hose for the dishwasher, is past the J-trap under the sink? Then I suggest your problem lies in the drain pipe, further down the line. If not you may want to remove the J-trap, and see if this is the source of your clog.
Is the bathtub/shower drain also backing up?
You may try some of the consumer drain clean products, on the market. If this doesn't work it's time to call in the pro's.
You may have a collapsed drain pipe, or tree roots have entered in your drain pipe system. Sometimes birds can enter the vent pipe for the drain system, and clog it up. Check to see that there is a screen, or some sort of protective device, on the top of all your vent pipes.

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.
