Question about KitchenAid Dishwashers

1 Answer

I am attempting to install a dishwasher drain line to a kitchenaid disposal under my sink. The disposal is a Kadette 250 1/2 hp. There is some kind of block or plug stoping the water from entering the disposal. How do I unblock it.

Remove the hose from the disposal, take a hammer and long screw driver, put it in the hole where the hose attaches and knock the plug out. Turn power off to the disposer and pull the plug out of the disposer. Hope this helps.

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.

When my dish washer discharge water instead of the water going out the drain it come out the overflow valve.


The dishwasher usually drains into disposal, or directly into tailpiece, and water drains down to the p-trap.
Trap may be clogged or stopped up.
Clean out drain line, tighten connection where dishwasher attaches.
Clean out bottom of disposal under cutter blade.
Copy following link for clogged disposal, and drain line tips.

Our dishwasher, a kitchenaid kuds230 model isn't clearing the water in the bottom. We had a new disposal installed yesterday and the problem with the dishwasher started afterwards.


The dishwasher's old water is pumped into the same drain that your kitchen sink operates off of. i would recommend that you check the hose that runs out of the dishwasher to the pipes under the sink to make sure that the line is, a) hooked up, b) that it is not crimped and causing the water not to flow.

Water is dripping out of the bottom of my kitchenaid kadette 250 1/2 HP disposal. Is there a fix?


If the leak is coming from the bottom of the disposal check the sink connection, drain connection, and housing gasket. If you find these are all good and you can see the water is definitely coming from the disposal itself and not from any of these connections, then the internal seal in the disposal is bad and will need to be replaced. If the disposal is over a few years old then it is more than likely best to just replace the unit. Not cost effective to have it repaired.

We have a kitchenaid dishwasher KUDK03FTSS. some type of clog. draining into the sink from the overflow. what should we look for and where?


If this is an old installation and the unit has been working then the problem is with your house-sink drain.
Dishwashers either connect to your disposal unit or to the drain directly. Usually if you have a clog with a disposal unit in the line then it backs up into the sink through the main drain. You say from the overflow.
Look under the sink and find the point where your dishwasher connects to the main drain. Open the connection and check for a clog just below the connection point. This is the most likely cause of your problem.
Good luck.

Kitchenaid kadette 250 1/2 hp won't turn on.


Try turning off the circuit breaker and turning it back on, pushing the reset button firmly on the bottom of the disposer, and checking to make sure it's not jammed and rotates freely. If it is jammed you can put a disposer wrench or allen wrench in the hole in the bottom and rotate the shaft to free it. There might already be a wrench under your sink for that.

Removing knockout from KitchenAid Kadette 250 disposer


Hi, You need to punch out the plug from the outside. The plug will fall into the disposal and you can reach in to remove it.
I use a small screw driver and punch through the plug in a few spots to weaken the plug. This will allow the plug to release easier.
Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic
