Hello and thank you for using this service,

I am a different tech,

The reason the pipes are shaking is you need water hammers installed in the pipes. You can get this style at any local hardware store. This simply screws on the water tap and the hose screws onto it. Very simple to put in and it will stop your pipes from shaking. There is nothing wrong with the machine. These newer machines turn the water on and off quickly multiple times so you need water hammers.
