We are in a 2 story with a full bath and washing machine on the 1st floor. The kitchen, dishwasher, and another full bath are on the 2nd floor.
Our samsung dishwasher was throwing an error of not detecting water. We've been checking lines, filters, valves, trying to see if there's any kinks or food blockages, etc.
Now suddenly the water pressure for the kitchen sink has almost disappeared.
We checked the rest of the upstairs and downstairs. Decent water pressure everywhere except the kitchen sink and dishwasher.
Any help is appreciated!

Is the filter in line with the hot? The dishwasher is normally only supplied by hot.

Crushed or kinked soft copper pipe supplying hot?

If the hot and cold at the faucet being slow would often be caused by a clogged aerator. But with the dishwasher also lacking water, that points to something before the dishwasher and sink hot paths split.

What kind of material are your pipes made out of? Any galvanized pipe or pipe nipples may be the issue as those can end up closed off with rust prior to them eventually leaking. The rust flakes can clog things up, too down the path as they break away. The problem happens faster on the hot lines, as heat helps to speed up the process.

It could be crud accumulated in the aerator of the valve, or many washing machine hoses have a filter screen on either their inlet, or sometimes there's one on the washing machine itself. Double-check those for blockages.
