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.

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.

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 :)
