we are trying to install a dishwasher and cannot seem to remove the
knock-out plug from our disposal. the previous owners didn't leave us
the manual and i can't find it online- it's a Kenmore 60514. We've
tried the screwdriver/hammer approach with no luck... any advice?
Sometimes the screwdriver will just punch a hole...try something blunt
like a ratchet extension.
You have to hit it pretty hard, a sharp quick blow works better.
If the disposal is still attached to the sink (esp if sink is SS) too
much of your hammer blow might be used up in the sink / disposal
Remove the disposal & put it on the ground.
Better to simply get a new drain pipe with the diswasher connection for the
other side of the sink. This will keep the junk you put in your disposal
from getting sucked back into the dishwasher, from experience!
