Hi,

The plug is thin plastic. Use a flat blade screw driver and a hammer to knock it out. I know this sounds primitive but this is how it is done.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

We just replaced our garbage disposal and now the dishwasher won't drain. I order a drain pump and it still won't drain.


Make sure that the air clear on top of the sink is clean and clear all the way through. Sometimes in replacement silt and other garbage clog this up and keep it allowing water to drain properly.

My quiet partner 4 will no longer drain, I recently replaced my garbage disposal & the problem began after that.


There is a plug you have to remove on the garbage disposal where you hook up the washer drain hose.

Check the instructions with the disposal.

You'll have to deinstall the garbage disposal, remove this plug and reinstall.

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.

The drain in to the garbage diposal is clogged.  Remove the drain hose from the dishwasher and clean the hose.  Also check the inlet to the garbage disposer and clena it.
