Sounds like either your planner blades needs some adjusting or the opposite side of the boards are not flat causing it to rock as it goes through. If they are large boards and you have a jointer I would try that. Small you can use shims and hot glue to get them level on a flat surface like a scrap piece of mdf and pass them through the planer.

I recently had this happen to me on my planer and a wood chip had gotten under one of the blades making in convex. Still not sure how I pulled that off but was an easy fix.
