New washer makes pipes hammer


Recommended Posts

We recently bought a new front load washer. When it starts to fill with water the pipes bang every time the water valve shuts off. I put the anti hammer valves on back of the washer with no luck. Any advice how to get this to stop. Pretty annoying to say the least.

Thanks, Andy

You should try to fix the water hammer issue before it causes more problems with your plumbing... ie broken or leaking pipe joints etc.

Check your water pressure, if it is excessive try installing a Pressure Reducing Valve.

Larger arrestors (or at least make sure the ones you have in place are indeed working.

Give those things a try and see where it leads you.
