Hello my name isXXXXX will be assisting you with this problem today. Thanks for trusting JA to help you with this appliance question.

Can you tell me what buttons are on the control from left to right?

heavy normal rinse only hi-temp scrub energy saver dry start cancel

Ok the problem here is either with the heat system or the control thinks there is a problem with the heat system.

First try hitting the reset.

Press these buttons one at a time.

Hi temp scrub

Energy saver dry

Hi temp scrub

Energy saver dry

Then hit the cancel button

Wait for the pump to stop then try a new cycle.

If the light begins to blink again you will need to check the door switches, thermostat and heater with a ohm meter, once the bad part has been found it will need to be replaced.
