Why does water back up into the sink when I run the dishwasher?Posted by Syed in , on March 4, 2020
This usually means there’s food stuck in your disposal. Since the disposal drain and dishwasher drain are connected, a clog in one will cause a backup within the other. To stop this from happening, always confirm your disposal is freed from food particles before turning on the dishwasher and always run the rubbish disposal with many cold water. If it gets really bad, you’ll plug up the sink, fill it with water, then remove the plug and run the disposal. The load from the water should help force out whatever is protected within the drain, eliminating the blockage. If this doesn’t work, give us a call! We carry garbage disposals on our trucks and may have you ever up and running the day you call.
