Why does the pressure decrease in my Kitchen faucet at a certain point when running the hot water?

As I turn the hot water on in the kitchen it runs fine until a certain point, then it becomes slow. I have an instant 190 fitting, a Kenmore Elite dishwasher all on the same lines, or so I guess. If the hot water is turned on low there is no problem, as the water is turned up higher by lifting the handle on the faucet there is a sudden knock and the flow of water slows down a lot. The cold water runs fine all of the time and in order for the faucet to have this problem the handle must be set all the way over to the hot side. Do I need to replace the faucet or is there something else I should do? Also is this having an effect on the performance of my dishwasher? It seems to take a long time to run through the cycle (more than an hour). Any help is appreciated.
