Question about Washing Machines
My washer sometimes drains as it is filling. Sometimes it does it on the wash cycle or it may do it on the rinse cycle. I unplugged it last night as to 'reset' it. It seemed to work. It only happens cold
The drain hose is not high enough and it is siphoning the water out. Get the highest point of the drain hose above the water level in the washer.

Tips for a great answer:
If the washer is turning off mid cycle then the problem most likely has something to do with the draining or the filling.
First check the drain hose is not to far down the standpipe. If it is to far down then the water might siphon out during fill. The water would fill and drain at the same time. One cycle I would like you to try is the "Rinse Only" cycle. This is a simple, short cycle that should just fill once, drain and spin. If the washer will do this then the major components are most likely okay.
Make sure the water drains out and let me know if the drain pump is the source of the noise you hear.

Chad -- Your problem most likely is the drain hose is either
a) Clamped tight to a drain line of some sort allowing water to siphon out
b) Washer drain hose is Shoved too far down the drain pipe
c) Drain pipe is lower than tub of washer alllowing water to drain
