Here’s a question from our 5/4/2019 Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Lindsey from Kansas says, “When I turn on my sink it overflows into my dishwasher and then my dishwasher is flooded. I’m already replacing the dishwasher due to other problems but want to know why the sink is draining into the dishwasher and if I can do something to fix it.”

We say the drain line needs to be moved up as high as possible.
