[quote=Debra Swope;193008]We replaced our sink and originally the dishwasher was hooked up to the another fitting. We want to hook the dishwasher to the garbage disposal, but the spout is not opened. How do we go about opening the spout. thank you Debra Swope
Use an old screwdriver and a hammer. The disposer must be out on the floor to do this. Do not attempt to knock out the plastic plug while the disposer is mounted.
Lay the disposer on a rug or something to protect the floor (I use the styrofoam that was packed with the disposer), place the screwdriver in the dishwasher tube on the side of the disposer and hit it with the hammer a couple of times. The plastic plug will be knocked out into the disposer. Remove the plug out of the disposer before remounting and using.
