I have an old stand-alone porcelin/ceramic bathroom sink with separate hot and cold faucets.
Whenever the hot faucet is turned on, a loud, deep, reverberating walrus sound is carried throughout the house for a couple of seconds. The noise is gradually getting worse.
It sounds like the washer is loose. Have you replaced it yet? If you have and the sound persists, the threads may be excessively worn on the shaft of the valve, in which case there are replacements for internal parts of most faucets. Check Home Depot, etc. ...Also, as a side note, a waterhammer 'arrestor' has helped one that I know of.
