In other words the water goes out as fast as it comes in?

Could the water be siphoning out the drain hose after it pumps out the first time?
If it's siphoning the water out as it's filling the second time check the hight of the drain hose and make sure there is a air break. If's the drain hose is connected to the sink or a garbage disposal then that will act as the air break.
