Usually this is due to wear in the control valve. The spools and safety valve will not hold pressure correctly and lock valve into neutral until pressures are normal.
You could remove the valve and inspect it for damage. You may find debris plugging someone orifices and that may fix the issue but it is rare considering the age of the machine.
If you need more help with this, please post the full machine serial number with your reply.
