You are missing that the plug needs to be removed on a new disposer. All new units have this port sealed as not every install will have a diswasher...Take the unit out, and look in the hole, woopsies. Push it out with a screwdriver and a hammer. this blockage would cause the water to come out of the vacuum break on the counter.
Fortunately not a big problem to repair.

Dishwasher not draining completely after new garbage disposal installed


If you hooked up the drain to the disposal directly there is no vent in the line. Use the air vent on the sink to connect the dishwasher drain hose. If there is no air vent, then you'll have to install one in the sink.

My badger 5 disposal is leaking from the side whats wrong


Check where leak is coming from.
1) Run water until leak starts. Use dry paper towel near top of disposal to see if sink strainer is leaking.
2) Move paper towel down and check where dishwasher connects to disposal.
3) Move paper towel down to tubular drain tailpiece.

4) Water should run down side of disposal if sink strainer, dishwasher connection or tailpiece are leaking. You can fix these problems using tips below.

5) If disposal is rusted out, then water will leak out of bottom or side of disposal body.
There are no repairs or repair parts for disposals.

I installed a bager disposal and a dishwasher brand new with all new hoses, but the washer won't drain. Any ideas? Kenneth


Does the dishwasher TRY to drain, and it just won't? Or does the dishwasher not even try to drain? You might have a stuck float or other sensor somewhere, depending on what your situation is...

After I installed my Badger 5 my dishwasher would not drain. Is there a plug in the dishwasher port on the side of the disposal and how do I remove it?


There is often a plug in the ISE as many people use them without have a dishwasher connected to them. Quite often it is just a thin plastic membrane that can be knocked out with a screwdriver. There should also be a note to this effect in your installation instructions for the ISE.

Used reset button, the motor runs but the blades are not turning?


sound's like you have a problem with your drain pipe's. it is not normal for water to come back up.check the allen key bolt, located on the bottom of unit .insert allen wrench /key,and turn in a clock wise&counter clockwise motion to see if disposal is jammed.you also might consider some drain opener before it get's worse

Water draining backinto dishwasher from garbage disposal


You have a clog where the drain pipe leaves the garbage disposal that isn't draining fast enough or not at all. Or it could be a clog in the dishwasher drain hose where it connects onto the disposal.

Dishwasher inlet is completely sealed


Your inlet hole has to be opened up. Use a screw driver to tap the plastic plug and it will open. good luck.
