Along with providing full video tutorials, InSinkErator also created handy step-by-step written instructions for many garbage disposal related installations and troubleshooting questions, along with addressing common garbage disposal questions and concerns.
Note: Check your local building codes for connecting the dishwasher drain to the disposer. For bacteria buildup concerns, some cities and states require the dishwasher drain to be directly fitted to the drainpipe and not the garbage disposal. However, this is only a concern if you plan on selling, in which the drainage will have to be connected according to local building codes to pass inspection. If you plan on staying in your home, you can choose whichever dishwasher drain connection option.
Direct Replacement of an InSinkErator Disposer
If upgrading and replacing an existing InSinkErator garbage disposal, InSinkErator makes sure the job is super easy with their universal Quick Lock® sink mount. Whether, choosing a more budget friendly Badger Series or investing in the premium Evolution Series, you’ll find that InSinkErator designed their garbage disposers to be a direct replacement.
Each new disposer is provided with a Quick Lock sink mount, but if the existing Quick Lock® sink mount is in excellent condition, you can save a lot of time and inconvenience by attaching the new disposer to the existing Quick Lock® sink mount.

InSinkErator has a full list of features and specifications for each individual disposer to help you choose the right disposer for your application and budget.
