That happens when for some reason any of the two drain/spin cycles are interrupted. Try this:

It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
Hello annp, thank you for your post! Based
on the symptoms you are describing, it does sounds like a siphoning issue.
Generally speaking, the drain hose should come up above the washer tub and
please make sure the drain hose is not too deep in to the house drain pipe. The
drain hose should only be submerged 4-8 inches into the house drain pipe. If
correct, otherwise the unit might be experiencing a communication with the
control board and water fill valve. At this point, please
reach out to an expert technician to ensure the appropriate replacement part is
ordered and is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this
information helps to some degree - please do not
hesitate to reconnect.
On most washers, the height of the drain pipe that the washer's hose drains into needs to be somewhere in the area of 34 inches above the bottom of the washer's base or higher. Also, is should not be sealed. (if sealed, siphoning my occour)
ON THIS MACHINE WHEN IT AGGITATES MOTOR ROTATES ONE DIRECTION, WHEN IT PUMPS OUT AND SPINS IT ROTATES THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. YOUR MACHINE IS ROTATING THE WRONG DIRECTION WHEN IT FILLS., INDICATING THAT THE TIMER IS SENDING VOLTAGE TO WRONG WIRES. SOLUTION , REPLACE TIMER.
PS: MAKE SURE ALL WIRES ARE PLUGGED IN TO MOTOR. WHILE THIS IS UNLIKELY , I HAVE SEEN THIS BE THE PROBLEM.
