Kitchen faucet only works when the dishwasher is running. I tried cleaning the diswasher filter but made no difference. Any ideas?

    Kitchen faucet only works .... what does this actually mean? – jsotola Jan 16 at 1:32
  • Hot? Cold? Both? – manassehkatz-Reinstate Monica Jan 16 at 1:37
  • Kitchen faucet just stopped working - both hot and cold, except when I turn the dishwasher on. – Patricia Mullins Jan 16 at 2:18
  • Typically a dishwasher and faucet will share one of the lines (hot in the US, cold in many other places) and the other line should be totally unaffected. If you upload a picture of the pipes going to the sink & dishwasher, that might help. – manassehkatz-Reinstate Monica Jan 16 at 2:58
  • Some issue with spray nozzle diverter perhaps. – Kris Jan 16 at 14:19
