Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers
If you just had the disposal replace and the dishwasher will not drain that means that the dishwasher plug on the disposal was not removed. Where the drain tube hooks to the disposal is a plug inside you need to knock it out with a hammer ans screw driver. On the link below will show you how. page 5 step 15. That might not be your disposal but it will give you the idea. Or if you give me the make and model # I can get you the right info.
Good Luck If you have anymore questions please ask

It sounds like you've done everything fine. I would disconnect the dishwasher drain line from the disposal, have a bucket ready and see if it will drain. It's possible that there is a plug or something else left in the disposal opening that is blocking the water. If the dishwasher won't drain with the hose off of the disposal, there is a problem with the dishwasher that has nothing to do with your disposal installation. Hope this helps and good luck!

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 :)
