    Dishwasher issue....got help.??

    My 3 year old dishwasher decided to give the wife a lil surprise tonight while she ran it....it backed up thtru the vent tube on the sink...


    Ive tried plunging the drain, and blowing air thru it....it doesnt seem clogged in the vent pipe as air goes thru into the bottom of the DW....


    Any thoughts or past experience.? thx

    Do you have just one sink, or is it two sinks side by side?

    Cool I can honestly say...

    The last time I dealt with a problem like this was the second time I ever fired my Mossberg.

    Don't worry buckshot makes nice clean holes that go all the way through.

    I did. With the owner's blessing. We went out on his farm to his favorite shooting spot where the terrain forms a natural back stop, stepped back about 25 yards or so in case anything ricocheted, and blew it to bits.

    I think Euc has got the best solution and it's even applicable to a variety of appliances.
