How to wire Dishwasher, Garbage Disposal, and switch...


Hello all

Thanks again in advance for all your help. I wouldn't have gotten this far without this community's help.

Anyway, more stuff to work on. I'm installing a garbage disposal and dishwasher.

In the undersink cabinet, I have two boxes:

One has two black wires, and the other has the standard black, white, and ground.

In the dishwasher cabinet, I have a wire, presumably from the undersink cabinet, with a white, black, and ground.

Please see pics attached.





More info, that I don't know if it will help...

In the breaker box, there are separate breakers for the dishwasher and for the garbage disposal.

DW: on, GD: off = one black wire in the box with two black wires goes hot.
DW: on, GD: on = same black wire in the box with two black wires goes hot.
DW: off, GD: on = no wires hot.

WEIRD!


I'm assuming that the box with the two hot wires had a switch on it. That doesn't make sense!

Anyway, your help in figuring out how I'm supposed to install my dishwasher and garbage disposal would be great. I'd like to get all this installed and working by tonight if possible. :D

thanks!

I forgot that the GD switch is ABOVE the cabinet. LOL.

Hey, I never said I was a pro at this stuff!
