Hoover washer Time 1600 H160E UK stops mid cycle with flashing lights
Our washer stops mid cycle on all cycles and flashes the start and Superwash lights 5 times, then goes off and repeats the same sequence. Typically stops indicating that there are 30 mins left. This also happens if start a drain or spin. Often have to switch off for a few mins, then start drain and hope will start. Have checked drain pipes and can hear pump go when it does start. Anybody with any ideas.

I would definitely change the pump motor judging from your clear symptoms and observations!
It's probable that the motor isn't running efficiently, just enough when helped by the 'gravity' of the full drum but struggles once that is minimum.
I do not have a solution but also have the same issue. That is when putting on a cotton programme, the superwash light comes on at the end of the programme and I am unable to open the door as it remains locked. I then have to put it to a rinse or spin cycle as it does not seem to have spun the clothes at all.
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.
