When we turn the hot water on full blast in our kitchen, there is a very loud noise and the water goes from streaming out of the faucet to just a trickle. It does not do this with the cold water and it only happens in the kitchen.

When we use the dishwasher, the sound also happens. Kicking the dishwasher in various places has not helped, nor does alternating punches with kicks... but if I turn the dial clockwise just a hair, the noise stops. I usually do this 5 or 6 times every time the dishwasher runs.

My husband put a new faucet in around the time this started. It does not seem to be air in the pipes.

Any ideas???

Kicking things never fixes the problem....hehe.

Well almost never. But, it sounds to me like there is something loose inside the body of the valve. Either the valve for the faucet or the shut off valve under the sink. I have had this kind of problem in the past and it was the gasket that shuts off the water inside the angle stop under the sink. It had come loose and was shutting off, by its self. Another time it was a piece of debris inside the faucet that was flapping back to cover the opening when the water pressure increased.

Good Luck
