Them 2 lights flashing indecates a heating fault.

For this you will need to pull machine out and remove the side panels. From there locate the heater and with a multimeter check to see if the heaters open circuit. If so you will need to replace the heater element.

If that's fine then you need to remove the outer door panel and check the wires in the door loom as it runs to the underside. Check each wire and give them a tug and check for broken wires in there.

If the above check out ok then its more likely to be a faulty control board.

So the flashing lights you have indicates a fault on the heater circuit on this.
