|In response to Re: Sewer smell in dishwasher and garbage disposal|
: I have an ISE garbage disposal installed above the trap in a single bowl kitchen sink. My dishwasher drain hose connects to the sink line above the garbage disposer. Sometimes, there is a distinct sewer gas smell in the dishwasher and also from the sink drain immediately above the disposal.
: Is it possible that the disposal unit is clearing the water out of the trap below it and the trap is not refilling to block the sewer gases ? If so, is the solution as simple as running the water longer after using the disposal ?
Found this on ISE's website
Odor from Disposer
Over time, food particles may accumulate in the grind chamber and baffle. An odor from the disposer is usually a sign of grease and food buildup, caused by insufficient water flow during and after disposer use. To clean disposer:
Turn off disposer and disconnect power supply.
Good Luck. *wp*
