Assuming that the washers were replaced because the taps were dripping, has the dripping now stopped? If so I'd say your tap seats are fine.

Hammering is often a result of air in the pipes which can be caused by the water supply being turned off to replace washers. Before doing anything else I'd just suggest running all of your taps in your house for a couple of minutes to see if that purges the pipes.
Hi Jane,
so you are getting the vibration when you turn on certain taps?
It could be the taps need to be reseated if only the washers were changed.
