3 flashes is a time out heating fault on this.

What you need to do on this to locate the heater is lie the dishwasher on its back and remove the metal base. Theres 2 screws at the front and the back part slids off.

From there you should see a silver cylinder. This is the heater. But if you have a later model then the heater is attched to the front of the wash motor. Its twisted on so you need to twist the heater off from the motor.

Once its off you can test the heater with a multi meter and see if its faulty and replace it from there.

Check them and see what you find as the 3 flashes is nearly always a faulty heater element in there.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.
