Since the disposal is AC voltage, it actually doesn't matter which wire connects to which wire. The power wires can be reversed.. That being said, if you look at the 2 black wires on the plug kit, one of the wires has ribs on it. That is the one supposed to connected to the white wire on the disposal. The other wire connects to the remaining wire. But again, it really doesn't matter, they can be reversed.
