        Ocassionally the water supply from my kitchen faucet stops. It occurs most frequently if the faucet is turned off quickly. It also occurs every time I try to use the sprayer attachment. At first I found that if I started the dishwasher the water would begin to flow from the kitchen faucet again. After a period of time, this fix stopped working. I then found that if I left the malfunctioning kitchen faucet open and turned on the faucet in the bathtub, the water would begin to flow again in the kitchen. If I turned off the bathtub faucet after the water began flowing in the kitchen sink, the pipes would violently knock about four times. Now, I can find no way of getting the water flowing in the kitchen again. Any ideas?

          Sounds like to me that the deverter washer is bad, are you have loose washer in faucet, Take spout loose and take out deverter washer inside and put in new one , if it dont stop check the valves under sink and see if washers are loose are bad. Also take off strainer on spout of faucet and cleanout. Let me know.
