Default Garbage Disposal and Dishwasher on Same Circuit??

Is this allowed? On my circuit break the dishwasher and disposer are on the same switch. It is a 20 amp switch.

Mine were on the same circuit until I had the dishwasher taken away.

I only have one CB for the whole kitchen. Only have problems when the toaster, coffee machine, microwave and dishwasher all work togeather. It may be different rules here as the CB simply has to be sized to protect the cable.

Bad to do that.

Go to , mikeholt.com and ask that Q.

I would put the DW on it's own CB and pick the GD up on another CB.

I have my DW on it's own CB. Don't even want to talk about a disposer. I'm on a septic treatment system, it don't need kitchen waste.
