How to get rid of water pipe noise at home


This usually occurs with high water pressures.
It may help by installing a water reducing valve at the water meter.
When a dish washer or washing machine turns on and off the water you will get a water hammer noise. The pipe fixings have come loose over time and the pipe bangs against the fixings.
You can reduce this noise by installing a water hammer device on the all the taps and then connecting the hoses from the dishwasher and washing machines to the water hammer devices.

I suggest you check out the best options with a plumber.

You can use a water hammer arrestor and hook it up to old washing machine hot valve by use of a standard washer hose. This type of aresstor is basically. a shock absorber. You will needtonget pipe adapters to go from hose thread to pipe thread.If you can mount the hammer arressror higher then the washer valve. Hook everything up and turn old hot water valve back on. This shoulg take care of your problem. Thank you.

With water hammer arrestors in place, there is


The water hammer arrester installed at the washer is not large enough to suppress the water hammer you are experiencing. This could be due to the length of the pipe between the washer and the water heater or the number of turns in the pipe. Water hammer can occur at right angle turns. Install another arrester near the water heater or at a turn where you hear the hammer sound occur.

Washer bangs between wash cycle and first spin/rinse cyle


Sounds like you need a water hammer control in your Hot water line, usually it's teed into the line and is just a short length of pipe with a cap on it, acts like a shock absorber

This is called water hammer - and is caused from AIR in your pipes.

There are Hammer Arrestors made to eliminate (or lessen) the hammering.

You should also bleed the air from the pipes - and re-prime them.

The hot/cold water fill solenoid might be stuck open.  Try banging on it lightly with a hammer and if that doesn't loosen it, replace it.
