Sounds like water hammer. Usually due to incorrectly clipped pipes. Is your washing machine drain hose held on by jubilee clips onto the spigot?

The likely issue is either a fault fillinf valve on a toilet cistern or part 2 ball float in the cold water storage tank in the loft ( if you have one)

Fillinf valve on the toilet normally around £120.00 est to repair

Part 2 ball float usually around £145.00 est.

Hope this helps.
