My kitchen sink whines whenever I use the hose sprayer. It seems to
only happen when hot water is used. I have a lever type faucet, and the
sound seems to be coming from the faucet it's self. Any ideas on whats
wrong/how to fix it?
replace faucet washers and diverter valve part.
first move hose around while spraying does noise change? noise is
sometimes from interior of hose vibrating, hoses detoriate over time.
moving hose with hot water spraying should help rule this out
I had a similar problem a few years ago and it turned out to be a
swollen gasket at the place where the spray head attached to the hose.
The hole in the center of the gasket had closed down so much that the
restriction prevented enough flow to fully toggle the diverter valve.
I went through changing the diverter valve before I figured out it was
just that damn gasket, enlarged its center hole a bit and things got
good again fast.
