That sounds like some nonsense a home inspector would find. Hope this is a good sign already ;)

Take the cap off air gap and make sure its not plug there....if not make sure line from vent to garbage disposal is not kink or plug
two screws to pull line off to check for plug..... easy fix...….or I see a tuna trip in your new ride on the horizon.....:-)

I pulled the DW and it was clear. No garbage disposal. The black line goes to the DW vent.

That’s an old school way of doing it.... I would have a plumber install a auto vent for the sink drain (newer/better) eliminate the vent on the sink and put a soap dispenser in the hole that it leaves. Then drain the dishwasher into the sink plumbing directly. That is how it would be done now. We do it all the time on new construction with auto vents and they work great. The auto vent is a one way valve/vent that lets the drain have air when needed and won’t let water back out. The auto vent will go under the sink.

A plumber will know exactly what I’m talking about.

Looks like you already have a soup dispenser installed. Get rid of the piece of shit air gap and install your drain line in a "high loop", cap your sink/counter top and be done. It's mainly installed to prevent water from draining back into your dishwasher if you dump a full sink or your main drain clogs. If your dishwasher is newer, it's got a "high loop" and a check valve on the drain line.

It’s one of the 4 things I agreed to correct. Servicing the HVAC and fireplace is all that’s left. And that’s after the WTC.

Check the ptrap, make sure that’s clean. There’s not much too it. If that’s clean it could be a clog down the line. You could also add a dw tailpiece to the sink drain and put it into there and cap the p trap. But having a stand alone ptrap is a better way anyways.

Pull the cap off, put a paper towel roll tube over the vent providing a seal. Blow in from the open end dislodging the clog. That’s how fix mine when it spills on the counter

No fishing. I watched as Carrie did her magic with the new joystick. We played around the fuel dock for a good hour, then ran her out past the bar a ways.

3’ @6 seconds is t much of a test for this girl. 30mph was just under 1mpg. Set the throttles, pushed the autopilot button, and sat back...
