Thanks very much for the replies! I've realized that the title I used is misleading but I can't change it. The rattling occurs whenever the water is running from a faucet, bath, or commode, not just when it is turned on. Would water hammer from the washer act like that? And would it affect every faucet/valve? I found a video on Youtube that is similar to my situation, although a bit worse. It happens at about one minute into the video: YouTube He says that he eliminated the problem by turning off the water, and draining it from the lowest point in the house. I have several on the same level, and have tried it with each of them, but no luck.
I can think of a few things that may be causing it. First being the pipes not secured properly. If it happens when the water is turned on and off it could be a condition of water hammer which would require the installation of water hammer arresters. The only other thing I can think of is if there is something stuck in the line/lines which is causing turbulence as the water runs through it.
