by Mason Jones Appliance repair Services

Every appliance undergoes certain kinds of problems; in the same way a dishwasher also gets malfunctioned.

The problem with the dishwasher or any other household appliance entirely disturbs our work schedule and gives so much mental pressure. Due to this, you just desire to get immediate appliance repair services.

One such problem that results in our headache is backing up the dishwasher into the kitchen sink. The solution to this problem isn’t much complex and can be solved easily by everyone

The problem mainly occurs due to the issue in one of these five places: the air gap, the dishwasher, the garbage disposal, the sewer line, and the sink.

But before directly reaching the solution, we should first find out the exact place from where the dishwasher acquired the problem. Here we’re discussing all the probable reasons due to which the dishwasher gets backed up in the sink in detail:-

·       Blockage In The Air Gap

This issue mainly occurs due to the problem in the installed air gap. An air gap is generally located on the top of the sink and the purpose of it is to prevent the back-flow of your dishwasher into the kitchen sink. In this way, it also prevents contamination. But sometimes the air gap itself acquires some problem and gets blocked. As a result, the sink starts backing up with the dirty water from the dishwasher and due to this;there occurs a huge chance of spreading infection.



·       There’s A Hitch In Your Dishwasher

Stagnant water directs the improper working of your dishwasher. To get rid of this problem you should check and clean the drain hose, and drain pipe in the dishwasher. For effective cleaning of the drain hose, you should make use of vinegar.

There’s A Choke In The Sink

Kitchen sinks easily become blocked with food leftovers and other remains. A blocked sink can let your sink drain leisurely, due to this your dishwasher also gets backed up into the sink.

To get rid of this problem you should run the garbage disposal, use sink cleaners, or twist the drain.

·       Waste From The Dishwasher Clogs The Garbage Disposal

This is another reason for the backing up of dishwasher into the sink. If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, then it is probable that you might have not removed the knock out plug placed at the opening of disposal. To get rid of this problem, you just have to remove the drain plug from the garbage disposal.

Sewer Line Has Broken                    ­­­­­

A damaged sewer line can incur many problems like a blockage in the toilet, issues in water outlet from bathroom,etc. One such problem due to broken sewer line is the backing up of dishwasher into the kitchen sink.

Thus, these were the reasons because of which your dishwasher get its water pooled into your kitchen sink.
