If the noise is not coming from the fan as Buffalo suggests, it is most likely the expansion and contraction of the heat exchanger. The old school way to lessen the noise of expansion is to bank the combustion chamber with a hammer. I don't recommend it today because the metal is so thin (thus all the noise) and you may damage it. You will get used to it and the noise may soften the more it is used. You will never get it to stop.

SOURCE: loud clicking, banging noise
We recently had the same problem. After cleaning both the furnace filter and the humidifier water panel, the clicking noise (electric air filter) and the loud bang went away.

The load is out of balance. Open the lid and redistribute the contents. When it's empty, grab the basket and give it a slight push sideways. It should move a little but, not free swing. If it doesn't have much resistance, the "snubber" has dried out and should be replaced. It is simply a piece of rubber in a metal bracket, that rests on the tub. When the basket spins,the snubber keeps it from jumping around.

If you have an external by-pass it needs to be closed. This will be a valve between the pipes in and out of the heater. When you close it, it forces water through the heater. When it is open no water goes through the heater. So the water in the heater boils and turns to steam. With no where to go it starts banging and jumping.
If you close this valve or it is closed and you still have trouble the internal by-pass has gone bad. The overheating from the first problem will often cause this.
You remove the water header from the side of the heater and pull the pipes from it. In reality you will probably have to pull the gas pipe so you can move the heater from the pipes. You will find the assembly inside the manifold. It will probably come out in pieces but the new one goes back in as a unit.
This will regulate your water flow and keep it heating at a constant temp.
