Question about Kohler Plumbing
I have a portable dishwasher that connects to the faucet using a special aerator. When I installed my new kohler faucet , i had to remove the aerator and install my special aeraotor so I can run my dishwasher . I could not get my aerator to seal properly and am afraid that the threads on the faucet are stripped . I suspect that Kohler uses plastic in their faucets and because the threads are made of plastic , they are suseptable to stripping

My best guess is the supply valve for the hot side isn't open all the way. This valve is right on the valve and is accessed by taking off the front cover plate. This would still allow the pressure balancing valve to let water through but then you would have a small flow on the hot side.
If this isn't it then then cartridge is bad.
Please rate this response and good Luck,, phil

Is cheaper to replace the whole tap as the service kits cost almost as much as the tap to buy, I presume you are talking about a flick mixer tap (that is what they are called in australia)
Replacing them is reasonably easy, turn off water at the main out on the footpath turn the tap on to let the water run out, go under the sink with a couple of spanners or deep reach socket and undo the lines and the tap hold down nuts and remove, replace in reverse order

You will need to buy the o-rings to fix it. You can buy at most hardware stores if you know how to turn off the water you can fix this with more instructions. Let me know if you need more help.

Remove the air-irater at the end of the faucet where the water comes out. That is where 99% of clog are on faucets. If that does not do it then you need to replace the cartridge.
Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.
