Can you install a new faucet with an extra spray outlet and use the dishwasher vent hole in the sink thereby connecting the dishwasher drain directly to the disposal?
Answer dishwasher drain Not sure what you mean by dishwasher vent hole, but you probably mean the air gap fitting. Some dishwashers connect directly to the disposal, with the tube going up a little to prevent stuff from going back to the dishwasher. But as for removing the air gap fitting, if you have it already, it may depend on where you are. California plumbing code requires a dishwasher air gap fitting above the flood level rim, even if you have a disposer, but I'm not sure if the national code also requires. In any case, if a code requires it, it may be a good idea not to remove the air vent. I would check your local code. You may want to consider a faucet with a built in sprayer instead.

Answer . \nThe sound is the dishwasher draining into the sink drain. It is a normal sound.
What can you do if a new faucet was recently installed in the kitchen and the drain vent next to the faucet shoots like a geyser when the dishwasher is turned on?
\n. \n Answer My guess is your garbage disposer was also replaced and they forgot to knock out the plug before connecting the disposer hose/drain\n. \n. \nIt sounds like you have a vacuum breaker on the drain for the dish washer. This is probably just a coincidence but your vacuum breaker needs t…o be replaced or repaired. It really has nothing to do with the faucet installation. (MORE)
Do you need an air vent installed for the dishwasher and garbage disposal and if so can it be installed another way if needed?
Answer . \nYour kitchen sink should already be vented if there is a p-trap draining to the wall. if it is an s-trap it is not vented and not to present code requirements. The dishwasher drain goes into the side of the disposal and the disposal should drain to the trap. A separate vent is not req…uired for the disposal or dishwasher as the trap for the sink is what requires a vent. (MORE)
Check and see if the water line going from the dishwasher to the disposal has enough slack to run up and over the connection to the disposal.If its just running along the cabinet floor and straight up into the disposal that's the problem.Its called an anti siphon loop
Answer . \nIt will spew water and shredded garbage into the cabinet under the sink! Don't do it!\n. \nOkay, all kidding aside I believe what you are talking about is the hookup with 1 sink basin vs. a double basin sink into a single p-trap. You will want to use either a center outlet continuous… waste drain, or, an end outlet continuous waste drain depending on where the sink drain is located. The disposal will go into 1 side of the tee and the other sink basin into the other side wher the 2 will be combined into 1 pipe to the single p-trap. The sink having one trap for each side would be optimum but if your house is not plumbed that way this is the next best thing. The continuous waste tee does have a baffle in it that directs the flow down to the trap this does restrict the flow somewhat and if the disposer side of the sink ever cloggs while the other side is okay I would start by looking here as long as the disposer is running.

Why does running the dishwasher cause the kitchen sink to fill with water and only drain when the garbage disposal is run?
This one is easy and you can do it yourself. Just remove the elbow "trap" pipe and clean it...It's amazing how things can get gunked up in there. I just did this myself and it took less than 20 minutes. Good luck.. Answer . The sink drain line is partially plugged..
Double kitchen sink has a foul organic smell like wet roots doesn't run slow no disposal do have a dishwasher no smell there have flushed it with hot water oxyclean and drain cleaner?
Do this. Pour baking soda into both sinks until baking soda can be seen in the drain. Pour white vinegar into the baking soda. It will foam massively, so step back. Keep pouring vinegar into the baking soda until it quits foaming. Rinse with hot water. That should cure the smell issue...and make the… drain run faster too! (MORE)
Answer . Probably not, depends on where the clog is at and how the dishwasher drain is connected. I wouldn't chance it, but the worst that will happen is the sink will fill with the water from the dishwasher.
There is a fitting available that you put on the end of the faucet. Take the screen off the end of the spout and this fitting screws on. It is like a quick connect for an air hose if you are familiar with that.
I am installing a new disposal. Can I run the disher line directly into the drain or do I need to run it to the new disposal?
Answer . You can run it straight through, but the whole reason for running it through the disposal is to catch anything comming off your dishes before it can clog up the pipes.
Why is water flowing out of the y-shaped pipe that is under my kitchen sink and connected to the dishwasher drain?
The pipe has plastic or rubber gaskets in them at the joints.Sometimes they wear out or the pipe gets bumped by moving somethingunder the sink, moving the gasket out of place.
your drain is pluged somewhere below your dish washer pull the p trap aprt and check that
Probably the drain hose from the dishwasher isn't high enough to keep the water from running back . The hose should be above the level of the disposal at some point. Some states require an "air gap" which is a device that is placed in the drain line to prevent this. Some states require a simple hig…h loop in the drain hose. Many dishwasher manufacturers are now installing backflow preventers in the dishwasher. (MORE)
You are installing granite counter tops Dishwasher drain is connected above elbow on one of the two sinks Do you need the air vent for the dishwasher?
This is generally a local code thing. We do not require it in our area and a loop is acceptable. Check with your code guy!
First you check the drain hose and the drain that it is hooked up too for obstructions. Depending on the machine,there is a check valve, gate valve, drain pump, check them for obstructions too. If you where to remove the hose where it connects to the valve or pump and then the part that it is conn…ected to you will know if something is blocking it. If this is not the case you will need a pro to check the valve,pump,motor timer control. (MORE)
If the dishwasher is hooked into a garburetor, there is a plug in the garburetor where the hose drain attaches that needs to be knocked out. The drain hose might be plugged where it joins to the plumbing drainage. The other problem, plumbing-wise, is the drain hose has to be fed as high as it can go… under the sink and back down into the drain. (MORE)
The drain is clogged. Check the strainer at the bottom of your unit. Always rinse your dishes of food before putting them in the washer.
Of course not until yo plug it in and connected it to a drain line
The standard height of a dish-washing sink is 36 inches or 3 feet.Kitchen sinks can be installed to fit the height of the people inthe home. These can be anywhere from 29 to 39 inches.
By properly sizing the vent by fixture units and developed lengh and pitching it up from the fixture it serves
Yes, I do it all the time! I use my dishwasher to clean the dishes and large pots and pans get washed in the sink at the same time. All the crud from the pots and pans then gets sent down the drain through my In-Sink-Erator disposer.
Most Garbage Disposals have a dishwasher inlet on the side that the Dishwasher's drain hose can connect to. This way only the disposal needs to be connected to the drain. Just be sure to knock out the plug on the disposal's dishwasher drain inlet before connecting with a hose clamp.
Yes, the air vent (air gap) is very much required!! It prevents water from traveling from the sink drain pipe or garbage disposal and into the dishwasher.
The drain is blocked. Either that or theres a problem with the wash program. locate the drain and try unblocking first. Sink and drain unblocker may be a good starting point.
The disposal has to be in place so that the drain on the dishwasher is connected. If you do not have a disposal or are removing it, there is a extension tube for the drain that has the dishwasher tube in it. The disposal does not have to work for the dishwasher to drain. The water is run through the… disposal so that any food particles get ground before going in the drain. After a while, the disposal will begin to smell if it is not run. (MORE)
If you don't have a disposal, you can get a Tail piece, the section of drain right below the bottom of the sink that has a Y on it that is the size of the drain from the dishwasher.
Yes it can but it will be at additional cost. The waste pipe from the sink will have to be p-trapped to inside the wall or into an adjacent cabinet. In some cases this would be an expensive alternative, however if money is no option, then it is reasonable to say it can usually be done.
Can be a few reasons. -Food particles jamming the filter screen on top of pump at bottom of D/W floor, discharge pipe kinked, or something small caught in impeller. The first 2 are more common, check them and see. The impeller can sometimes be got at if you lift or unscrew the filter screen from ins…ide bottom . (MORE)

A garbage diposal can draw anywhere between 5 to just over 8 amps depending on the size of the unit
Garbage disposal, if one is installed, or a wye branch fitting on the tail piece of sink drain. Dishwasher drain line should have an air break or air gap before the disposal or wye branch fitting.
No. Many vital parts in the dishwasher are plastic. Usually, the drain hose is plastic, too. Drain cleaners are ok for PVC pipes, but too caustic for other types of plastic. Drain cleaners also cause corrosion of metal parts.
Your question leads me to believe that your dishwasher pump is broken. You may need a medium sized rag-- suck up the water and wring it out into an empty pot. if it is a stationary-- under the counter unit --you will need to loosen the two stationing screws just under the counter-top edge ab…ove the diswasher and pull out the diswasher and replace the uit. Unless you are mechanically inclined enough to get another pump to replace the old one yourself. (MORE)
You can, but depending on the model you may have problems with water siphoning out of the dishwasher during operation. Putting in a high loop may prevent this, and running the drain to a countertop air gap device before passing through the floor should certainly prevent it.
Is there something that would cause the dishwasher not to drain following replacing the garbage disposal?
If you used disposal tap for dishwasher drain there is a knock-out inside the tap that must be removed.Take a large screw driver and hammer and remove knock-out.
Yes, through the dishwasher drain attachment on the disposal. There is a knockout on the inside of the hole on dishwasher attachment that has to be knocked out before attaching the dishwaser hose to the unit.
Yes, you will have to change the tube that is directly under the sink to one that has the small Y connection on it. Any hardware store should have it for a couple of dollars.
The sink drain is blocked somewhere after the disposal. take apart and clean or renew sink drain.
A 15 amp dedicated circuit breaker should be used for the dishwasher. The disposal can be wired to the general kitchen 15 amp circuit.
Because to use it at home so we can put dishes to wash in the dishwasher.
Most common is a center drain, but it can be at either side depending on where the drain goes into the wall. On the side closest to the dishwasher, the tail piece directly under the sink has a smaller tube in the side of it for the dishwasher drain.
So that any food that is in the dishwasher will be ground before getting to the drain, less chance of build up in the drain and to help keep the disposal cleaned out. Also it means you don't have to install a separate connection for the drain.
When doing sink repairs or replacing an existing faucet a crescent wrench would be most beneficial to you as well as a pair of viscrips. Boith tools aid one another in holding moving parts still so that bolts and nuts can be removed.
The disposer fitting , where the dishwasher drain hose fits, has a plug inside that must be knocked out. I use a heavy screwdriver and a hammer. Don't forget to fish the plug out from the body of the disposer.
In the USA, a typical electric dishwasher plugs into a standard household 110/115 outlet. Exactly like an American toaster, television, clock radio, etc. No special outlet required, like some room a/c units with the L shaped prongs. Good luck. Cheers.
NO. The dishwasher drains into the top of sink drain. Unplug or replace the sink drain.
Codes differ everywhere, - however if I as renovator install these appliances, I always put each one on a dedicated separate breaker.
All dishwashers are self draining. If it doesn't drain possibly thedrain or bottom pan filter is blocked - or there is a problem with thepump. All dishwashers are self draining. If it doesn't drain possibly the drain or bottom pan filter is blocked - or there is a problem with the pump.
Yes, even it is not working, water will still run through it. Yes, even it is not working, water will still run through it.
Dishwashers, especially energy efficient ones, are known to bebetter for the environment when used in full and with minimalpre-rinsing.
