DISPOSAL HUMS BUT CANT FIND RESET BUTTON ON WHITMAN


The problem is not that you tripped the circuit breaker. Problem is that your disposer is jammed.
Over time, food particles may accumulate in the grind chamber and baffle. Here's what to do:
1. Place stopper in sink opening and fill sink halfway with warm water.
2. Mix 1/4 cup baking soda with water. Turn disposer on and remove stopper from sink at same time to wash away loose particles.
If that doesn't help, you have to release the disposer jam.
1. Turn off disposer and water.
2. insert one end of self-service wrenchette into center hole on bottom of disposer. (It's a funny looking slightly "S" curved tool.)
3. Reach into disposer with tongs and remove object(s). Allow disposer motor to cool for 3 - 5 minutes, then lightly push red reset button on disposer bottom. (It maybe indented so almost unoticeable.) If motor remains inoperative, check service panel for tripped circuit breaker or blown fuses.

I have the Badger 5 in sink erator under sink food disposer and it is leaking from a small on the bottom of the unit. How can I repair the unit?


Disposal is rusted out and needs to be replaced.
If you plug the hole, the motor compartment will fill with water and short out the electric.

Water not draining after wash. Checked the troubleshooting guide and none apply to problem. It seems like the pump isn't running.


Have you purchased a new food waste disposer for the kitchen sink area? If so, make certain if you are draining the dishwasher directly into the food waste disposer, that you have removed the plug from the food disposer. Or you may be correct that the water pump is inoperable due to an obstruction or basic malfunction. Contact an appliance service company.

Water drains fine the unit runs but does not get rid of food


Be aware that your selected object you have a problem with is a hot water faucet made by insinkerator, not a disposer. I'm not sure what your problem is, but let's try to address the most common problems.
The disposer must be turned on and run to get rid of food. Does the motor come on when you turn it on? If it doesn't, does the disposer make a humming sound when you turn it on like it's jammed? If it makes no humming sound when you turn it on, first press the reset button on the bottom firmly. If the disposer then makes a humming sound, it's jammed. Read below. If the disposer still doesn't act like it has power when you turn it on, check the circuit breaker or fuse and try the reset button again. If none of this so far works and you still don't even hear it making the motor-stalled-buzzing-sound (open the cabinet door) then you should still check the disposer to see if it's jammed.
First, make sure you TURN OFF THE POWER to the disposer with the circuit breaker or fuse box. Now you need to check if the shaft rotates freely. On most disposers, there's a hole in the center of the bottom of the unit. You can insert a special disposer wrench or allen wrench into this hole and turn the shaft of the motor. It should rotate freely. You'll probably find the disposer wrench taped under the sink, or you can pick one up at a hardware store. If the disposer doesn't have this hole on the bottom, you need to go from the top. Remove the splash guard (black flappy thing) if it is removable on your model. Look inside with a flashlight for anything foreign that may be causing a jam like bottle caps. Place a broom handle against one of the lugs mounted on the wheel, and see if the wheel turns freely. If it doesn't, try to work it back and forth until it does. Then use tongs to remove the foreign object. After you clear a jam, it may be necessary to push the reset button again. If the motor became overheated it may take it as much as like 20 minutes for the motor to cool enough to allow you to reset.
Be aware that food usually needs to be pushed into the disposer manually, with a full flow of cold water.

Oster is a good brand. Unplug it and try to turn thhe motor by han using an attachment. Or, tap the unit with a run button depredded. Here is why. Sometimes new brushes on a motor have a coating on the conrtact surface. It is vry thin and it is not permitting a good electrical contact. If you can't turn the motor, slap it a couple of times with it on. Once it starts, let it run for 2 or3 minutes and you troubles are over once the brushesseat and clean up. Good luck and remember to unplug when hands are on or near the attachments.

Water won't drain. no food in bottom of disposal


Sometimes, the dishwasher can back stuff up into your disposer drain and plug it up. Disconnect the disposer drain and make sure that it is unplugged. If it is in a bind, you can rotate the innards my applying the wrench that comes with the unit to the socket on the bottom side of the disposer. It is an allen head usually.
You can also fill the disposer with hot water and plunge it like you would a stuck drain, but this is really less preferable as there are many ways to plumb these drains, and you may wind up either just relocating the plug to something (dishwasher?) else, or pop the drain line off, making a mess.
IF it is a new disposer, and has never been used, you'll want to make sure theat the casting inside of the outlet tube is cleaned out.
best regards, --W/D--

Dishwasher not draining - spilling over floor


Disconnect the hose from the disposer and see if the dishwasher will drain into a bucket. If it does, there's still a blockage in the disposer nipple. If no water still comes out of the hose, you need to pull out the dishwasher to see if the hose disconnected from the dishwasher's drain itself.

No clean dishes


Internal filtersEvery dishwasher has some type of filter to keep large food particles and foreign objects away from the pump assembly:

  • Most modern dishwashers have self-cleaning filters that don't need any routine cleaning.


  • Some have filters in the bottom of the dishwasher that you need to periodically clean. You don't need any tools to remove the filter, and cleaning it is easy. Consult your owner's manual to determine which type you have and its maintenance requirements.
If your filter is clogged, it may be causing the cleaning problem.


Drain valve

Some dishwashers have a valve (or gate) that should open only during draining. If debris lodges in the valve, it can't close properly, so water drains out during the wash cycle. Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposer. If yours does that, listen for water flowing into the disposer during the wash cycle. If you can hear it then, the drain valve may be clogged.

Spray arms

There's a spray arm at the bottom of your dishwasher--it may have a tall spray tube mounted to the center of it. There may also be a spray arm located directly beneath the upper rack of dishes and/or above the upper rack.

If debris is blocking the holes in the spray arms where the water comes out, it could cause cleaning problems. Regularly inspect each of the spray arms and clean out the holes as necessary.

Detergent cups
Dishwashers don't perform their best if detergent is introduced only at the beginning of a cycle, so add detergent to both parts of the cup.

If the detergent cup isn't opening, see the "The detergent cup doesn't open" section, below.

Note: Dishwashers are usually wired directly to the home’s electrical system. To disconnect the power, switch off the circuit breaker or remove the fuse for the electrical circuit the dishwasher is attached to. Try to turn the unit on after disconnecting the power to be sure you were successful.

CAUTION: If you’re not sure you’ve shut off the power properly, DO NOT CONTINUE. Call a qualified appliance repair technician to complete the repair.
