I knew you were selling your home- however, this is a DIY site where we offer help to people who are doing their own projects. Please refer to this post- "How much will it cost?" Asking for price estimates here.
I suggest you talk to your agent or a plumber to arrive at a counter offer.
I personally wouldn't pursue the installer as you'll probably just be stonewalled- IMO

He probably hooked it up the way he did to save you the cost of a new garbage disposer.

The old disposer has had the " knock out " removed to hook up to the dish washer, and there is no way to put it back in.

I'm sure he could mickey mouse it, but that would be another code violation.
Be careful what you wish for.

Doubtful, perhaps, but your installation may have been code legal at the time it was done. But it's been my experience that anything negative, however trivial, will turn off some buyers. I'd have it fixed, as it's an easy job.

Cant see very well in the picture, the only thing you need to make sure is that the drain hose from the dishwasher loops up as close to the counter top of the sink as possible, what they don't want happening is in the event of a stoppage that the water in the sink backs down to the dishwasher. that s it not a big deal.
