Question low hot water flow at kitchen sink & clothes washer

Water flow is trickle at kitchen sink & washer, but normal at bathroom sink & tub. It's been low for awhile, but recently froze & unthawed now.

Check the strainers.

For the faucet, located in the screw on aerator tip of the spout.

For the washing machine, at one or both ends of the hoses connecting the machine to the wall water supply. (Don't forget to turn off the water first.)

Welcome to the forums.

but recently froze & unthawed now.
That's not good.

Allan mentioned strainers but that would reduce both hot and cold at the sink.
I'm envisioning a valve not opened all the way or partially clogged in the hot water line to those devices.

The water fill valve on the back of most washers have screens in them that are often overlooked, but need cleaning.
