Default Garbage disposal won't drain.

Our emerson garbage disposal is going round but the water will not drain. Potato skins were last item in the disposal. I have snaked the main water disposal line but have not been able to get the water to drain. What else could be going on?
Could it be the input line from the dishwasher?
