Why does a dish washing machine drain through the sink?

Dish washers usually drain through the sink because of simple logistics associated with their installation. The appliance is located near the sink in the kitchen because this is the center for cleaning and restoring to use our dishes. The dish washer doesn't use tons of water like a clothes washer, and if it is hooked up to drain through the sink (frequently through a port in a disposal), a separate drain line doesn't have to be run for it. It simply dumps the gray water out into the sink effluent line and it's all good.

What would cause the sink to 'cough' when the washer is running?

IF your toilet sink and washer are on the same waste line, which they probably are, the problem is't a short trap. Actually since your washer, toilet and sink have different traps it shoudn't effect anything. The problem probably comes from the washer being what is called a "sudds producing fixture". The sudds produced by your washer can actually go up either your toilet or sink waste line. By code the waste for your washer should be tied in to the sewer main 6' from where your waste line goes up for your bathroom. The only solution is to redo the piping from the sewer main and move your waste line for the washer. it won't harm anything. The worst thing that could happen is you'll get suds out of the drain in the sink
