The faucet in my kitchen makes a loud noisy when the water is on. It sounds like a whistle or whining noise. It is louder at times than other. I have tried hitting it and adjusting the water flow. It does make more noise the faster the water flows. What can I do to fix this?
Usually this is caused by a defect in the faucet. If your faucet is older, it may be possible to replace just the o-rings or washers in the valves. Sometimes the washer or o-ring splits or tears causing the noise. If it is a newer faucet then it may be necessary to replace the valves in the faucet.
