Hi

Them lights flashing indicate a fault in the heater circuit of the appliance.

You would need to unplug the appliance and take the side panels off.

Unplug the heater and test it with a multimeter to see if it's open circuit.

If it is, you need to first replace the heater and try again.

If it's ok, the likely fault is the main control board in the facia panel of the appliance.

Check the heater, check the wiring to the heater. See what you find.

Hope this is of some help

Let me know how it goes or if you need more help

Regards

Hi

Ok sorry i missed the part were it said you replaced the heater.

But the error code flashing is still a heating error code. Ingnore the rinse aid light as this isnt part of it.

So if the heater is fine then just check near it as some versions have a thermostat screwed to the tub. If you have check this as well.
If thast fine then remove the outer door panel and check the door wiring and see if theres any broken wires but if thats all ok then its going to be a faulty control board.
