problem with washer

My LG washer model lg washer model wm2140cw is having problems filling up when starting a wash. It will fill with water for 10 seconds, then stop and shut, then starts filling again, then stops, until it eventually fills all the way. The problem is that with each burst, it is causing 'water hammer' in my house, causing all the pipes to shake and rattle. It will not fill up steadily, it starts and stops and starts and stops. What is causing this and how can I fix this? Is this normal, should the washer be doing this?

Washer fill problems can be very upsetting and with the extra water pipe issue I can see how this would be frustrating. I located a general explanation of the problem from a previous expert post that may help while you wait for the expert to review and answer for your model. I attached the link below.
