Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.Sounds like you have a stoppage further down the line. Do you have a 1 or 2 compartment sink? if you have 2 does the other compartment connect to the drain independently of the ISE?

Single sink and dishwasher only

Ok then you need to snake the drain. The best tool for the job is a power snake. You can usually rent one at any tool rental outlet.

So u believe the stain out is the issue correct
Expert:  Rick replied 11 months ago.
I don't understand your question. You're describing a sink drain line stoppage. The clog doesn't always happen right under the sink.

Ok I will try the snake
