Hoover hpe 236. water not draining, stops mid cycle, lights flash

I have a Hoover hpe 236 front loader washing machine, it's almost 4 years old. It stops mid cycle, programme light for the start of the wash cycle flashes and it's full of water. Water won't drain away, machine stops during spin cycle. Left it unplugged all night and put it on empty this morning on and it worked fine. Put some clothes in and put it on again and it has stopped with water in drum, lights flashing and door locked. Is there something I can do myself? Is it worth getting repaired after 4 years or should I buy a new one?

Have you checked the pump filter, and or that the pump is actually working. if it spins o/k with no water in, then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump o/k, then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Hope this is of some help to you.

My 3 year old front loader suddenly stopped draining, spinning, and now the door will not unlock. It still has power and you can hear clicking, it does cycle through wash, but stops at drain and lights...


This looks like the pump is blocked or drain or the pump has gone. to try and solve it best thing to do is open pump filter usually on bottom front of machine to access pump water will come out so be ready. when you have opened the filter you can check for a blockage and give it a clean put filter back on and put it on a cycle and see if it drains. to make door open start a cycle stop it after a few seconds of being on and turn off machine on machine not at plug and leave it for a while it should open. if it does not then switch off for 5 mins and back on and repeat it hope this helps.

Stopped working mid cycle. The timer still counts down but does not fill, agitate, spin, drain. And before it stopped, the water that was draining out smelled really bad.


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use quite hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

Our hoover ultra care 1300 large load washing machine spin fault


The most common cause of machines stopping mid cycle is not draining. Your machine should have a filter behind the kick plate at the bottom.
If this is not the case please post back for further assistance.

Washing machine keeps stopping mid cycle


If you found coins and such in the drain filter then there is a possiblility that the impeller in the drain pump motor was damaged and you are not getting good water flow thru it. The machine will error out and stop mid cycle if it detects it has not drained in a set amount of time. OE indicated a drain error. I suspect you need to have the drain pump motor assembly replaced.
