you can try and put boiling hot water down the drain, but be careful It depends on how far the wax went before it solidified. You might be able to get by with just removing the sink "P" trap, cleaning it and putting it back. If the wax solidified later in the pipe, you'll need to run a "snake" through the pipe to break loose the wax. A snake is just a device for running down the drain to break loose junk that got stuck.

How to get candle wax out of the inside of dishwasher?

how to remove candle wax from my dishwasher I had candle wax clogging my dishwasher drain so I kept running the pots and pans cycle and sucking up the water into a wet/dry vac and eventually the drain worked again! Two votive candles were the culprits, so don't give up. Slowly the candle wax was melted by the hot water, but not before it appeared in the water and that's why the wet vac scooped it up so it didn't go back down the drain. At first the wax completely coated all the dishes and the bottom of the dishwasher, the rest went down and clogged the drain, so it doesn't take much wax to do damage. It took 4 or 5 times and hot cycles to remove enough wax to clear the drain. Good Luck!
