pipe noise as washer turns on

I've read posts about the water hammer noise as an
appliance or faucet is turned off, but I'm having a
similar problem when the clothes washer turns on.
As the water is turned on, there is a loud bang coming
from the pipes in the wall. The noise sounds like it
is at/near the water heater (which is near the washer).
The noise does NOT happen when the dishwaher turns on,
or if a faucet is turned on. What is the cause? How
to fix it?
