I'm a single mom and cannot afford a plumber if at all possible! My garbage disposal has quit working. I have used rest button, it hums a few seconds then shuts off - also water is draining slowly in sink.
In addition, my dishwasher has quit working at the same time. There is power, but the dishwasher is not spraying water. Is it possible that these two items are linked? Does the dishwasher have a auto-shutoff if there is a clog that won't allow to drain? Any ideas would be gratefully accepted. I don't want to call a plumber until no other option is available.
