Install a pair of water hammer arrestors near the washer valve connections.

Your new machine has a new solenoid valve that slams shut much faster than your old one that may have been a bit worn.

They have some at Home Depot, specifically made for washing machines. I installed them, they helped but it's still evident.

I really wish washing machines didn't use a solenoid valve.
