Just had this problem whilst trying to get kids off to school you know the deal, suit on reddie brek in your ear, wife shouts back as you scream help me get the bowl!!!!!!!
This is a pump siezed inication.  Well thats what mine was.  Switch it off at the wall, remove bottom whit cover by the screws, mind there are some hidden.  On the right at the bottom the pump has a plastic splash cover on it.  flick that off and slide the pump towards the cylinder it is held in by 2 lugs on a top heavy eight figure and then it lifts out.  Remove power lead dont worry it only goes back in one way.  The 2 clips holding the black pipe from the machine (this will have 2 bowls full of water so have one standing by and within reach, also make sure the wife is behind you and keeps quiet!! the white that is the drain are both ratchet style.  with a bit of persuasion they will slide off each other if you get a twist on them with a screwdriver.  (the teeth go across each other a lot easier than trying to pull against whats they are designed not to do).  once you have the pump in your hand look in both ends for obstructions, mine was a party balloon which was well and truly wedged.  Try it for free movement if not then maybe a new pump, get the part number off its id plate.  Further tests if your careful plug it back in and cycle the machine and see if it spins up.  If not then you may be in another world of components and relays.  i have had my machine for 7 years and am amazed how well its doing, now its becoming an old friend as i am getting to know its inner workings more and more.  Good luck, i am on email if you need.

Hi we moved to a new flat with a kuppersbursbuch iwt 1259.2w washer. we cleaned the filter and put in a dettol detergent to clean it-since then it pauses mid-cycle and does not pump out the water

It is doubtful cleaning the filter and using Dettol will have caused any problems.

I believe it was quite common to have a programme where the washer stopped mid-rinse before pumping out the water in order to reduce creasing of the clothes. The programmer would be advanced when it was convenient to do so and the rinse cycle would continue and finish with the final spin.

I suggest you read the instruction manual before deciding whether there is a fault or not...

How can I stop the lights from flashing mid cycle and make the machine continue its cycle to the end and drain?

first you need to take off the drain hose that allows the water to pump out and check to see if it is blocked at the part that it connects to from the machine , you could try to blow back the water but if its blocked i doubt it , after you remove the hosing inspect the inside of where it fitted onto , with the cord unplugged from the wall you might be able to use a bit of wire with a tiny hook bent onto it and pull out any blockages . also make sure the water pump is engaging when it goes into the pump cycle .

before doing any of the below please try not to get any electric wires wet and make sure the plug is off oor better still unpluged....good luck.....tip be carefull not to pull any little wires might have somethink stuck in the pump causing the machine not to empty the water (the pump is normaly found under the bottom of the washing machine) if you do undo the pipe going to the pump watch out because there is water in there most of the time.......also check the filter because somethink could be stuck in there (these are normaly found on the front of the washing machine under the bottom front cover) careful because a little bit of water comes out...

Try syphoning the water out by laying the hose down into a bucket or similar, once the water is out, try it again, hopefully this will clear the prob
If there is a reset button, try this once the washer is empty.
Hope this helps.

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

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.

Hi Snarey, it sound like your door lock has passed away, you will need to make sure the appliance is unpluged, empty the water out of the drum, and check the vacuum switch which opperates the lock.
