Hi and thank you for using Just Answer.
This could be an error code display and the machine is trying to tell you something. When it stops and flashes, count the number of flashes from one of the lights between the pauses. Let me know the number. Thanks.
Ok, outside of that, does your machine fuly work?
Ok that's fine ... since the display is 1:53 this is normally the amount of time shown left during the cycle. You could have inadvertently hit a different cycle selection or something to increase the time. As of right now, I wouldn't worry about it. The machine you have is a very solid one with many great reviews. In fact this is one machine I very seldom see for repairs. If you have any other questions please ask. If a problem comes up, just let me know and I can continue to help you out. I wish you the best.
Is your machine filling and emptying? Making any noise?
When was the last time you cleaned the filter on your machine?
That's fine. I'm going to move this to our Q&A section so we can have more time working on your problem. This doesn't mean we're done, but if you follow the directions, you can still contact me it will be in a different way. Please let me know what you find, so we can proceed from there. Thanks.
