Kitchen faucet doesn't work but dishwasher does?

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.
