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 cabi…net floor and straight up into the disposal that's the problem.Its called an anti siphon loop
Yes. Your dishwasher discharge hose is probably hooked into the side of the disposal. Running your disposal will not hurt the dishwasher.
Yes - It's not easy if you put it on the back porch. If you can afford - go for it. ANS 2 - Back porch ?? - The garbage disposal is what many people call the garburator. -U…sually under the kitchen sink and most dishwashers ARE next to it .
Original answer: Yes! I did this in my Kitchen USSEG: It really comes down to how much amp each of the appliances is going to use at peak. You need to look at the emperage …draw of each appliance then make your decision. If you are sure you are not going to use both at the same time (ever) then it is fine. A disposal requires at least a 15 amp and a dishwasher usually needs at least a 15 amp. If breakers start tripping you will need to separate them. If this is for new contrstruction, there is no reason not to run a separate line for each.
an attachment to your sink where you can flip a light switch and it will turn on so you can put food down the drain and it will grind it up so it wont get stuck
No definitely not. Drano should not be used anywhere. It is very harmful to your plumbing
In the U.S., we use 120 volts AC for domestic power. A garbage disposal uses this power, and the current it will draw will vary, depending on the wattage ratting of the applia…nce. (Note that we also have 240 volts AC because we use a pair of 120 volt legs to provide that voltage to run electric ranges, electric clothes dryers and the like.
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. J…ust be sure to knock out the plug on the disposal's dishwasher drain inlet before connecting with a hose clamp.

Usually, but it depends on your local codes.
Check the air vent tube under sink make sure it is connected properly or water will back up into dishwasher
You put waste food and vegetable products into them and the macerate it and flush it down the drain.
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 tha…t 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.
Sure! Should not be a problem. Unless your dishwasher is the type you can put dishes in that still have food on them. I would rinse them first if that is the case.

You should really try to have one dedicated to your refrigerator and one dedicated to your stove/oven (if electric). I believe you will not have any issues if the dishwasher a…nd disposal are on the same circuit.
Yes, they should be on separate breakers.
