Flashing tap light indicates water has leaked in the base of appliance and activated the anti-flood device.
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 aquastop valve.

You may unplug it and remove the plinth (base panel below the door) of the appliance.
You will see a white plastic cover and above the white plastic base tray there is a metal cover.
Remove this and then you can try and soak the water up from the base there.
After this is done, check the drain hose where it connects to house drain and make sure it is not clogged.
Then clean the mesh filter from inside and make sure it is not blocked.
Reconnect everything and plug it back.
OK, it seems you need to replace the socket and plug as well.
Please call a local engineer and get that replaced as well.
You are very welcome and Good Luck.
