Need suggestions !!

I have got a problem on closing off my kitchen sink mixer tap. Specifically, on closing HOT water part, there is banging noise. This appears only if I quickly close off tap....else there is no problem.

I did took off AIR but it doesn't help. After taking air out, banging noise do not appear for 3-4 days and then it starts appearing again.

Regards,

Either loose pipework,worn tap washer,worn ball valve/float valve washer.
I take it the tap in question is a 1/4 turn tap?

Thanks for responding!!!

This noise is coming only from kitchen sink tap so is it fair I localised this problem to tap washer only?

Not sure of size....hence uploaded image itself.

Turn your stop tap on a bit more.
It could be the loose jumper getting a shock wave from pipework and slamming the washer back on the seating.
Sounds technical but very basic.
