A garbage disposer is never supposed to run at the same time as a dishwasher
Dear Glenn: My house is about 3 years old. My kitchen sink would fill with water about half way when my dishwasher was draining and I would turn on my garbage disposer to take the water down. Now when we use the dishwasher, it does not drain at all. Could you please help?
Dear Gary: A garbage disposer is never supposed to run at the same time as the dishwasher. You may well have plugged the dishwasher drain. It's time to call a plumber.
