Please explain what you mean by " a fast pumping sound" do you mean a thumping/banging sound?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
yeah it's like a thumping sound. Only when I turn the hot one on not the cold.
Expert:  Rick replied 8 months ago.

Since it's only hot not both hot and cold the most likely cause is a loose washer in the faucet or in the shut off under the sink.
