Question about Washing Machines
If the aerator is clear of debris, there is a valve of sorts in the center of the faucet that diverts water to a spray nozzle (the sprayer on a hose that would be next to the faucet). Even if you don't have the sprayer, most all kitchen faucets have this diverter valve. It's a bit like the thing (in a bathtub/shower combination) that switches the flow from the tub spout to the shower head.
Sometimes, something will work its way into the diverter so that it stops the flow to the tap. It could be a piece of debris (mineral flake, rust flake, etc.) that can be backflushed out. This would require removing the faucet and removing the main valve assembly. Long story short, think about replacing the faucet if the diverter valve is acting up.
