Why would the water pressure in the kitchen sink go way down after installing a new dishwasher?

check that valves are fully open

Your faucet may be clogged. If you have good pressure elsewhere in the house, this is your most likely culprit. You may just have crappy overall water pressure. If you don't have good pressure in the tub or elsewhere, consult with a plumber about installing a pressure tank to increase your water pressure.

Absolutely. Every built-in dishwasher can heat water to a higher temperature than what dispenses from your kitchen sink.

It needs at least 38 psi of incoming water.

Shut the electrical breaker off and lock it out. Undo the drain hose under your sink. Shut off the water supply under the sink to your dishwasher.Take the bottom front panel off the dishwasher. Undo the water supply attachment to your dishwasher. Open the door to your dishwasher and take out the screws attaching the dishwasher to the counter. Undo the electrical connection to the dishwasher. Slide the dishwasher out. You may have to adjust the legs to get the dishwasher out. If you have a new dishwasher to install, read the directions for installing it, do the reverse to take the old one out.

Dishwasher line is hot water. Tie ice maker into 1/2 inch cold line going to kitchen sink.

Looking at it, it should be on the left, but it doesn't have to be. If there is a dishwasher line, that would be the hot.

It provides it's own pressure. It has it's own pump which is used to create the needed pressure to wash the dishes.

Where do you not have pressure? At the sink? Probably some rust came loose and is blocking the screen in the end of the spout.

There may be a shut off under the kitchen sink. If not, the whole house will need to be shut off.

you can improve water pressure by installing a booster pump or if on a well then turn up your set pressure. If you had good pressure before and now are having poor pressure then it could be many reasons.

Possibly unscrew your aerator at the end of the spout and see if the screen is clogged. Blow it out and rescrew the aerator on. If that isn't the problem, sometimes things get caught in the spout. Unscrew the spout and turn the water on. If there is water coming from there and not out the spout when it is hooked up, the spout is plugged. If no water coming out when the spout is off, rehook spout and change cartridges or stems in the faucet AFTER shutting the water off. Depends on the brand of faucet, check the instructions for the brand and model. Also your kitchen dishwasher and sinks are run on seperate valves. The dishwasher valve is usually under the sinks (causing the water to go to the dishwasher first) the valve that was installed for the sink (before the dishwasher) may be bad too.

2-3 usually. 1 each for hot and cold water and possibly a third for hot water going to dishwasher.

what is the water temperature of an automatic dishwasher in a restaurant?

The wash pressure is fine, but the rinse pressure is very weak. The gauge will read around 15-20 psi but the rinse cycle is weak.

Installing a pull out kitchen faucet is really just as simple as installing any other standard faucet. The only real difference is that the faucet itself has a feed in line which connects to the water source inside the base cabinetry.

Your kitchen faucet is getting bad, the water line that runs to the dishwasher from the branch under the sink has nothing to do with the faucet. the only way the faucet would run is because the gaskets or seats are getting bad. The dishwasher will not affect any water in the house,water goes into the dishwasher and leaves through the drain, it never will reenter the water system,so if you have a white residue,it sounds like you have hard water. If this sediment is inside the washer,you might not be using the right soap for it. Also, the water for the dishwasher should be hooked up to the hot water line not cold.

There is usually a main water valve that comes into the house, locate this valve and turn it down. Installing a pressure reducing valve after water main valve will allow for adjustment of water pressure to proper setting.
