Forum Title: Kitchen Sink Hot Water shuts off
Hello I am having trouble with my kitchen's hot water. Kitchen was recently updated and have been having problem since renovation. When I am at sink running hot water there will be a bang under sink/or maybe in basement and hot water will not work. I can still get cold water but when i turn to hot nothing comes out. I can either shut water off of keep cold water running and 30 seconds later or so the hot water will start running again. Under sink there is 1 shut off with 2 outlets for hot water(1 to faucet and 1 to dishwasher). I have a feeling that these may be happening to dishwasher too because sometime i hear the bang when it is running. I worry i may be destroying my dishwasher. Any ideas what could be causing this? Thanks.

I would start by replacing the double supply stop valve that supplies the hot side of the faucet and the dishwasher. The washer in that valve may have come loose and be bouncing around when water flows past it.
