Question about Washing Machines
Assuming that it's clean water (rather than dirty water siphoning back out of the drain), I think you need a new inlet valve.
If your machine has both hot and cold water feeds, you'll need to find out which one is still feeding (easiest done by turning the supplies off one at a time while listening whether it makes any difference). If it only has a single feed hose, you're spared that bit of faultfinding.
Look at where the feed hose attaches to the washing machine. The threaded inlet is actually part of the body of the inlet valve. Remove whichever cover gives you best access to this component (on front loaders, access to this bit is usually best from the top) and replace the valve with a new one. They're not normally outrageously expensive.

The inner tub on some machines does rotate very slowly while filling to assist with the even distibution of the load. If the agitator is turning back & forth while in fill mode, you could have a timer or transmission problem. You need a tech.
