First, I'm not positive about the model number. I can't tell if there's an "O" or "0" in it. Judge for yourself.

After running the sink for a while, water backed up into the dishwasher and all over the floor. Of course there was lots of stuff in the disposal and thus the water was not draining. I cleared the disposal, and the dishwasher was able to pump the water out on its own.

Isn't there a check valve that should prevent this from happening?

Thanks.
Jack

The drain hose from your dishwasher is probably connected to your disposal. From there water will naturally drain down into the bottom of your DW unless there is a high loop in the DW drain hose to prevent it. Do this: If there is enough slack in the DW drain hose, gather it up and tie it up in a way so there is a loop in the hose as close as possible to the top of the sink, then re- attach it to the disposal. That way, any water would have to get above the highest point in the loop to get into the DW.

Does that mean "no check valve"? I'm trying to avoid pulling the dishwasher out, if possible.

I've had this dishwasher for a few years, and this just started happening this week. If it's because the hose isn't high enough--wonder why this hasn't happened until now...

In fact, here's a check valve that's supposed to be for this dishwasher...

Thanks.
Jack

Ahh, that helps. The photo (in the catalog) did indeed look like a flap. Looks pretty simple, mechanically. ;) I'm assuming it' may not be completelyy water tight, but should certainly prevent major backflow.

Does it sometimes get clogged/blocked OPEN by large food fragments? Or do they just fail?

Thanks.
