start by making sure the valve that supplies hot water to the sink and dish washer is fully open. If there is low hot water pressure in any of the other kitchen/bathrooms, then trace the line to see where the pressure drops. If it is only in the kitchen, it should be an old valve, (causes restriction)Good Luck.

I have very little water press on the hot water side


Dis-assemble the faucet to get to the valve. The handle comes off and you access the valve from the top, usually by removing a screw on ring.

You will robably find contamination in the hot side of the valve.

You can find instructions on the Moen website.

My washer works on any wash cycle that does not use hot water. However, if I choose a hot wash setting, it starts and begins the cycle then stops. The door is locked but the cycle stops running.


Make sure that you are getting water out of the hot side. Close both faucets, and remove the hot side washer hose. Have something at the ready to catch the water. A bucket will do fine. Inspect both ends of the hose. Usually, there is a screen there to catch any sediment. Inspect the hot connection to the solenoid valve at the back of the washer. There's usually a screen there, too. If you note any specks of debris, pull the screen(s) out and clean. Reconnect the hose to the hot faucet. Pointing the open end at the bucket, open the water valve, making sure that you are getting water there.
>> If you are getting plenty of water at the faucet and through the hose, the problem is probably the solenoid valve. Replace, but unplug the washer first.
>> If the water supply is lacking, you have plumbing issues.

The hot water stops coming out of faucet


if this is the faucet in picture, turn off water, pull out cartridge and inspect for any debris in cartridge or valve body, if not, turn on hot water to see if water is getting through valve body. May have kinked line or debris from or in angle stop line.

Low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet


It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.
