In response to Re: Dishwasher overflow/drain problem
: I have a dishwasher in my house that is probably 10 yrs old and now I am having problems with the diswasher draining. The drain pipe from the dishwasher is 1/2 inch and it goes directly into the sink which has a garbage disposal. Does anyone know why the dishwasher will not drain and how to fix it?

: Thanks in advance.

The DW drain hose could have a kink or clog in it but that would be unlikely. The pump may be shot, an appliance repair person can troubleshoot and advise. Depending on the cost of the repair, it my be worth replacing the complete DW.
Good Luck. e-plumber
