I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash III dishwasher, I believe purchased

This answer was rated:

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash III dishwasher, I believe purchased in 1995. The kitchen sink is clogged and it gets worse when I run the dishwasher. I wonder if there is a problem with the hose connected to the sink or the trap. Does that make sense? If so, what do we do?

Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Can you explain what you mean by "it gets worse when I run the dishwasher"?

I have not heard back from you. Is there a problem?

I asked you a question but never got a response. I said: Can you explain what you mean by "it gets worse when I run the dishwasher"?

When the dishwasher is run, the sink fills up and overflows.

That's not a problem with your dishwasher, that's a problem with your house plumbing. You may need a plumber to come out, or you may need to take apart the plumbing pipes under the sink to try and find a blockage that you can clean out.
