It sounds very much like the siphon.l which is the part of the system which when activated, allows the water to be released from the cistern into the toilet bowl. Depending on the age of the siphon, there are two options. One is to get the membrane replaced which sounds like it's torn or a new siphon.

Sounds very much like your siphon has failed. You will need a plumber to replace it but it isn't a huge job if the cistern is easy to access.
