The blinking CLEAN light is an error code for a water heating failure .
May I have your options (not cycles) on your control panel?
So I can walk you thru proper diagnostics for your model.

every day i do as option Normal Wash (if that is what is meant by option) and water heating is working perfectly ( i always let it run to heat the water up as mentioned in the manual).I hope this reply will be helpfull for you.
