Good afternoon,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your appliance today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that can be.

When those lights flash, do you see any of them that remain lit ?

Good evening,
Without the information requested in my previous response, I can only give you a general answer, but I hope this helps.

Those flashing lights indicates communication error between the control boards.

Before you replace the control board please try this:

You will have to unplug the appliance and pull it out, then tip it backwards by around 45 degrees so excess water drains off completely.
After you have done this, check the drain hose where it connects to house drain and make sure it is not clogged.
Then please clean the mesh filter from inside and make sure it is not blocked.
Now, reconnect everything and plug it back; select any program.
It should work however, if the problem occurs again you will have to replace the control board.

I hope this helps, please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions.
I hope you enjoyed your experience with today.
Have a wonderful evening.
