My Maytag dishwasher is not draining. The kitchen sink

Customer Question

My Maytag dishwasher is not draining. The kitchen sink connected to the
the dishwater still drains well. The switch for cancel and drain still appears to go on
but no draining occurs. My wife and I always clean all food off our dishes and pans
before they go into the dishwasher so we don't think the dishwasher disposal is clogged.
What should we do?

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! How is the drain hose connected to the home's plumbing for draining, please?

It is connected direct to the garbage disposal under the kitchen sink

Has the disposal been installed for a while or is it new? There is a plug that needs to be knocked out during installation to allow the water to drain through that port on the side.
