Air in the water pipes

How do bleed the water pipes so when the dishwasher runs it does NOT rattle the water pipes?

You don't have air in your pipe but rather are experiencing a water hammer.  What happens is the valve that controls the flow of water into the dishwasher shuts of rapidly.  The column of water inside the pipe continues to move and rattles the pipes.  Install a water hammer arrestor near where the water supply line for the dishwasher connects to the household piping.
