SOURCE: How to knock out garbage disposal plug

Turn off the power source to the garbage disposal. Take the drain hose from the dishwasher off the connector going to the disposal (if connected). Insert a flat blade screwdriver in the drain hose fitting and tap a few times with a hammer. The plastic plug will pop off inside the garbage disposal. Reach inside from the top of the disposal to retrieve the plastic plug. Sometimes you have to use a little force to tap the plug out. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: How do you knock out the plug in garbage disposal

From the outside of the disposal, insert a large flat blade screwdriver and give it a hard tap with a hammer. The plastic plug will pop free. Reach inside the disposal and retrieve the plug. If you have questions, please let me know.

SOURCE: the dishwasher does not drain, i just replace my

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. I just came accross your post and immediately I thought, " drain plug in garb not punched out" this is very common when a new garb or dishwasher is installed..so much If I had a dollar for every one I saw or heard about I could be paid a couple of trip charges. If you haven't already done so, remove the drain hose from the garb and knock out the stop inside the spout. See your installation guide/owners manual ( for the garb/disposer ) if you still have it, that should show you "where" and "how". Let me know either way and I'll help further if necessary. Regards, Macmarkus :)

How do I fix -no power issue on my samsung dmr78ahs dishwasher?


To eliminate a dishwasher problem, run a heavy 3 pronged extension cord from a known working outlet to the dishwasher and plug the dishwasher into the cord. If you still have no power (dishwasher is not showing any signs of life) then it is a dishwasher problem (circuit board, bad connection from dishwasher cord to dishwasher, etc).

If the dishwasher actually shows signs of life, then you may have a tripped breaker. Check the breaker to make sure it is on and that the tab is not either in the center or the off position. Also, try moving the dishwasher cord's plug from the outlet it is currently in to another outlet in the under sink area. There is a chance that the plug got switched from the normal outlet to the outlet that controls the garbage disposal, that outlet should only be hot when the disposal wall switch is flipped to the on position.

Dishwasher LD-1420T1 tripping power in the house?


Okay, this could be tricky because depending on who installed it, they might have wired into it. Check your garbage disposal and if you have anything else plugged in nearby, check that wiring too. Some installers have a nasty issue when it comes to hard wiring. They don't like doing it. So instead of hard-wiring your garbage disposal, they'll cut it in to your dishwasher. If your garbage disposal or anything else is wired to your dishwasher the load on the washer and the current the washer is using is too high. That's going to trip your breakers. You should probably contact an electrician and have them check the breaker box to make sure it's wired correctly. You may need to upgrade the breaker or have the dishwasher circuit upgraded. If it's an old house, it could be anything but first, check to see that nothing is wired into your dishwasher. You can tell if you have a few switches in the same outlet and turn them off. If your garbage disposal won't work and the DW won't either, then you have a wiring issue. That's the easiest way to start.

Try reset button on bottom of disposal.
Following link has full troubleshoot resources:

If reset will not restore functionality, check that unit is getting power, and then check that unit is receiving 80% rated voltage. Replace disposal.

see this causes and proceed according. God bless you
Belt, Water Pump Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Drain Solenoid Kit If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.
Drain Valve The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable Pump and Motor Assembly If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.

Check Valve If the dishwasher won't drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a small plastic device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

Check Ball If the dishwasher won't drain the check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

Smeg df410 dishwasher df410 no power


Most dishwashers and garbage disposers should be on their own circuit. First I would check to see if it was hardwired or at least plugged in, then I would check to see if it has it's own breaker and that it is on. if it is a plug in washer I would unplug it and see if power was making it to the outlet. at that point she should see if any other breakers are tripped in case if it didn't have a home run. then call an electrician or pull the front cover off to see if they wired it. if hard wired work your way back to the junction box again but each level takes greater knowledge.

Demudifier worked great, all a sudden it just stopped. No power. Now it won't start up. What should I try?


First, check the outlet that it's plugged into, to make sure that there's still power to the outlet. If there isn't, then the circuit breaker for that outlet has been tripped, in your home's circuit breaker panel. Leave the dehumidifier unplugged and reset the circuit breaker. If it trips again, without the dehumidifier unplugged, then the outlet is at fault. Perhaps there's a loose wire connection or the interior of the outlet is cracked.

If it didn't trip without the dehumidifier plugged in, plug the unit it in,. But, before you do, make sure the dehumidifier's Master ON/OFF Switch is OFF. Once it's plugged in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. If it runs now, GREAT! If it trips the circuit breaker again, there's either a short in the power cord or an internal electrical short. Which will require extensive troubleshooting to find.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

When we switch on the garbage disposal, there's no sound at all..dead. Switched power cord to another outlet, plugged it in and automatically the motor turns on but the blades don't move. It doesn't...


If you plug it into the original outlet under the sink and flip the switch, nothing happens? No motor sound? And when you plug it into a different outlet, you can hear the motor, but the blades don't turn?
If this is the situation, I would guess that there's a problem with the insinkerator. Something stuck in it, or it's otherwise jammed. This could have tripped a breaker.
If the breaker failed or the circuit wasn't wired properly, this jammed condition could also have resulted in the wire at the switch or under-sink receptacle burning off of the terminals.
Turn off the circuit at the panel, double check that it's off, and remove the switch and the receptacle to see if the wires are still connected. If they've burned off, do not re-connect them. You should consult a licensed electrician to correct a hazardous situation.

Insinkerator has power but does not grind garbage. have hit reset button and turned allen screw at bottom. now i dont get a hum from the motor.


Is it hardwired or does it plug into an outlet? If it plugs in, check the outlet for power. Is a circuit breaker tripped? How do you know it has power if it doesn't even hum?

No power to my dishwasher


A diswasher is normally plugged into a non-switched outlet under the sink. Make certain the power cord hasn't been knocked out ot the outlet.

Most homes today come pre-wired for a garbage disposal, as well. Normally there will be one duplex jack under the sink, one jack "always on", the other controlled by a wall switch above the counter. If you don't have a garbage disposal, make certain the dishwasher is plugged into the "always on" jack.

Switch will not turn on disposal


under the sink you will probably find an electrical outlet with the disposal cord plugged in. If so, plug another item into the outlet like a blow dryer to be sure you have power to the outlet. If you have no power the problem is a tripped breaker or a blown fuse. First check all of the plugs in the kitchen area including under the sink to determine if you have a ground fault circuit interrupter outlet. If you do, it may be tripped. If it is tripped simply reset it.

If you know you have power to the disposal then check to be sure no spoon or other hard object isn't in the disposal preventing it from operating. Use a flash light to check this. If there is no obstruction look on the case of the disposal for a reset button. good luck.
