Low water flow from kitchen faucet

I have a moen kitchen faucet that initially worked well. For the last several years, the flow from the faucet has been reduced such that it now takes a long time to just get one cup of water. I tried a new faucet and had the same problem. All the other faucets in the house have a normal water flow. Any ideas or solutions that I can try to avoid getting a plumber?

Their is likely rust build up behind the valve connections to the hot and possibly cold water supply lines. Turn the water off to the house relieve the pressure and remove both valves. Once removed use a screwdriver to break up the rust. With a small bucket under both lines turn the water main back on slightly to clear rust. Replace both valves with new ones.

Yes... if you have replaced the faucet once and had this same low water pressure on your new faucet then it probably is not your aerator (screw off piece on the tip of the water spout) which can get clogged whenever the valves are shut off and then back on... before doing anything else check that... your aerator can be cleaned and reassembled but a new one is about a buck.

If the aerator isn't your problem it's definately a water pressure issue related to the valves under your kitchen sink -- and here's what you can try... remove the aerator and take a phillips screw driver and hammer to the valves under your sink... place the tip of the driver on the handle screw on your valve and give it a good whap with the water running... a few good whaps on each valve and your pressure may increase and you'll see all kinds of sediment come out of the valve body and down the drain.

Chanfge the shut off valves under the sink,, they have a rubber washer in them and after time they seperate and clog the valve,, this will fix the problem,, good luck make sure you get the compression ones if you have copper water lines if they are plastic you will need the ones for cpvc and the 1 step glue to nstall them

You can order the parts from the Moen web site.
Not sure why they sell UK products in USA with different thread types, but I've run into the same issues trying to replace broken supply hoses.
There may be an authorized Moen dealer in your area as well, and typically they stock the items.

Whirlpool gold drains all the time, unable to fill


Hello

Ensure the water faucet is turned on and the connection between the water and the dishwasher is secure. The hose connector should be snapped into place between the water faucet and the water hose.

Straighten the water hose and check for possible obstructions in the water hose, the water faucet and the hose connector. Clean as necessary. Turn on the faucet hot water slowly until it is all the way on to ensure proper water flow to the dishwasher.

Open and close the dishwasher door firmly. The dishwasher will not start a wash cycle if the door is ajar. Verify that the dishwasher is plugged in to a working power supply and that a wash cycle has been selected.

Avoid running other appliances that use water, such as a clothes washer, while the dishwasher is running, to avoid improper water pressure. This may result in a lack of water flow to the dishwasher.

Check to make sure large dishes, such as cookie sheets, pots or pans, are not blocking the spray jets. Avoid overloading the dishwasher.

My dishes are not cleaning no matter what cycle i try


If water is spraying as it should, and you are using adequate detergent, then most suspect is your water temp is too low.

Run your kitchen faucet till hot before running the dishwasher if this is the case.

Also use of a sheeting agent like JetDry may help.

Kenmore Dishwasher won't fill


Not likely an air lock. When plumbing work is done the pipes ge shook up and then particles plug up the screens on these and washer and faucets. I would make sure the over flow float is properly working and then check the screen on the fill valve. Could be a coincidence and the valve failed but that is my last choice in this case. Eric

Dishwasher worked fine last night, this morning it is not working


In some supply systems, there is a safety valve ( commonly referred to as a shuttle valve) that has a small ball bearing that blocks the water from flowing if a water line bursts.. This is supposed to be a safety feature to prevent flooding but can be an annoyance if that ball moves and blocks water flow from coming in.
That, or your water inlet valve may be the prime suspects for this problem..
Hope this helps,
Regards,
Rick
