The knocking noise is actually the water boiling to produce steam.
No different from a pot boiling on the stove. The only difference being the noise is dampened in open environment in the pot, while in the vacuum its a small closed environment with plastic which enhances the noise. There also could some hard water debris within the vacuum chamber which pounces around during the boiling process, such as the same when a water heater becomes old and hasn't been drained. Hard water causes calcium deposits which in turn causes knocking noises in a water heater.

Don't you have to push down on the handle while mopping the floor to get the steam to release. I know the one I have has a handle that slides down the shaft in forward mopping motion which releases the steam.
