SOURCE: Water Surge Making Pipes Knock
What you are describing is called "water hammering" and is caused when a water valve shuts off quickly. The momentum of the water moving within the pipe causes the pipe to bang when it comes to a sudden stop. Plumbers can install an air chamber to absorb the water hammer (just like a shock absorber) but you might try ones that you can just screw onto the hoses behind the washer. I have seen them at places like Home Depot in the plumbing department. (hope you can find someone who actually knows what you are talking about to help you find them) Alternately, you may be able to find them at a hardware store or appliance parts supplier.

The problem is the 10 cent rubber washer in a shut off valve in your plumbing. The brass screw that holds this washer has corroded and the washer has come loose. It now floats around inside the valve and the water flow can be blocked at one time, whistle, howel and make bangs at another. It could be any valve including the main shut off. You can listen to the pipes but the sound travels, so you are looking for the loudest spot. A new washer and screw could fix it, but sometimes the screw is broken off requiring a new valve stem. Be prepared to replace the whole valve.
