SImple Simple Dishwasher and Garbage Disposal Connection
 
I replaced my kitchen sink and forgot the proper wire configurations to hook up the dishwasher. Out of the wall are 3 wires: black white and red.

The garbage disposal has a red wire and a white wire so i connected them to the red wall wire and the white wall wire and the disposal works fine.

However the dishwasher has a black and white wire. I connected black to black and white to the other 2 white wires (the wall and garbage disposal) but i cant get the dishwasher to power on.

Does it sound like I am doing something wrong? Thanks!!

That black wire may be on a different breaker..... check your box to ensure all other breakers are on.

Thanks, turns out it was just half ass wiring by me. Tightened them up and they work now!
