Dishwasher won't drain!

I just installed a new garbage disposer, and now my dishwasher won't drain.  I hooked everything up the way it was, so I don't know what the problem is.  Do I just need a new dishwasher?  Thanks.

Greetings Marc,

 

This is a problem that we get in the aisles at Home Depot fairly often, and the good news it is easily resolved. Although most homes here feature dishwashers, disposer manufacturers such as Insinkerator design them to function without a dishwasher connection. A plug is placed inside the dishwasher drain connection that needs to be removed. The following photo shows the location of the connection;

Once the knock-out is removed, your dishwasher should operate as it should.

 

Happy Holidays from all of us at Home Depot!
