I just installed a new garbage disposal because the last one developed a leak in the plastic casing.
 
Garbage disposal worked great, but my dishwasher filled up with water. I realized that iI forgot to remove the stopper plug from the disposal! They make them with a plug in case you're not hooking up a dishwasher.

So if you just installed a new disposal and now your dishwasher is filling up with water, check to see if there's a plastic plug blocking your drain.
