2nd part,,,What if you also have run the garbage disposal at the same time as the dishwasher??

Sorry, I'm talking to him on the phone and typing. So now he's like he has to run the garbage disposal at the same time as the dishwasher. If not he was told there would be air in the line and somehow cause the disposal not to work properly. So he's asking me how long to run the disposal. This is some BS landlord in Hawaii screwing with a young military man. His lease is up in Feb and is going to wait it out. But with all of these problems I'm thinking he needs to move.

  • I presume by your questions, that your brother does not live in HI and it is NOT military housing?

    Sounds like the slumlord needs to do some work on his housing. I would see if your state has a tenant hotline or something. Call your capital if you have to, they'll point you in the right direction to find out what rights he has as a tenant. Knowledge is power. Read the laws!

    As for the dishwasher, it sounds like a piece of crap put in with bad plumbing. My gear head hubby says that that means the motor should be replaced anyway and a good one would not seize up. So the other tenants have to do the BS too?

  • FISHY!

    Have him look up Hawaii's landlord/tenant laws and help him find a way out of his lease.
    I don't care where or who they are, that's some F'd up $h!t

  • That means that the dishwasher doesn't drain correctly!! He should just not use the dishwasher. If it is just one living in the apartment - just hand wash the dishes and let the next tenant deal with the dishwasher/disposal.
