Slow running hot water in kitchen.

The kitchen hot water pressure is very slow but the cold water pressure is very good. The hot water does not heat up very fast and I realize that it is far away from the hot water tank. There is a ice maker and dish washer hooked up. You can start the dish washer and the hot water heats up sooner just after starting the dish washer. The house was built in 1948. Just yesterday the hot water when turned off started to make a whinning sound. Any suggestions?

Hot water problem

Do you have a two handle kitchen sink valve? If so the problem may be in the hot side, look for a damaged washer, that may also explain the sound. Luck.
