Garbage disposal/dishwasher part deux. [mi]
posted by Lola_G to Home & Garden (7 answers total)
So last night, after attending a work holiday function...I decided to test out some of the suggestions from y'all regarding the disposal.
I reached under the disposal and found the reset button. I pushed it and then flipped the switch for the disposal it buzzed for a second and then died again. Then the water I was running in the sink started to fill into the dishwasher which I did not realize until it started seeping out onto the floor.
Well, in my slightly inebriated condition (perfect for home improvement don't you think) I neglected to clean out the filter in the bottom of the dishwasher which is now filled with food from the sink/disposal.
Do you think this could have caused the disposal to die right away? Is this where it needs to get air?
Any other suggestions or time to call the plumber? I will try again tonight without the help of alcohol. (Stupid me).
