Recent experiments of transport through two weakly coupled quantum dots [1] show finite currents in the spin blockade region which is attributed to the hyperfine interaction between electronic and spin nuclei. We analyze the electronic spin transport through different quantum dot configurations in the regime where spin blockade occurs. We include in our description phonon-mediated hyperfine interaction between the electron and spin nuclei through the Overhauser effect, as the main source of spin-flip. Our model consists on rate equations for the electronic states occupations and nuclei spin polarizations which are treated in a self-consistent way [2]. We discuss the current as a function of an external magnetic field, where singlet and triplet interdot state crossings occur.
