If you are talking about scalloping or many shallow troughs left behind on the workpiece, then I think it is just a result of trying to plane end grain with straight knives. The stars have to align for that to go right. Some people get away with it, but only under certain conditions.
- brand new sharp knives
-or better yet, helical head
-waxed planer be
-extremely light cuts (remove next to nothing per pass)

I think a drum sander or ROS is a better tool for the job.
