    It could be that the pipes were not fastened to the studs when they were installed.

    Is this problem only associated with the clothes washer, or with other devices as well (sinks, toilets, etc)? Also, does this occur with both hot and cold, or just one?

    Considering this problem occurs only with the washer, and with only one of the inlets (hot or cold)...it sounds to me like a bad solenoid valve on the washer. If the valve is worn out, or otherwise malfunctioning, it could be making this noise as the faulty diaphram in the valve vibrates. You can get parts for most major appliances fairly easily.
