Question about Ace Hardware InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal
Sounds like your drain is clogged a bit downstream from the disposal. The water is backing up into the vent pipe which is causing the water to flow back to the sink and dishwasher. Follow the drain line to see if there is a long run of fairly small diameter drain pipe before it enters the larger drain. This will be under the house or in the basement. There should be a cleanout plug where you can insert a drain snake. Using a drain snake through a cleanout can be messy, but isn't very difficult. If you don't have a snake, the manual ones are pretty cheap (way cheaper than calling a plumber!) But there are many sizes, so measure how long you need before you buy. If you are considering renting one, you won't need the big power operated job - that's for big sewer pipes.
