So this problem actually has nothing to do with your washer but the issue is caused by your washer---let me explain. The hammering you're getting is due to your pipes in your house not being 100% secure, that is why they hammer when the water shuts of or turns on. These new solenoids cut water off very quickly when the close unlike some older washers. That doesn't mean there is a problem with the washer--that is actually the way they were intended to work. They just create a lot of noise in your house if your plumbing isn't solid. There are 2 options. you can secure the pipe through your walls by adding more brackets, or you can install an Air Jack where the fill hoses from the washer connects to the valves on your house. The Air jack helps reduce the amount of pressure when the valves open and close since air compresses but water does not. Almost all new houses are installed with these on the washer fill valves due to the hammering affect that new washers can have on pipes.
