I suspect there is water in the tub that has the control in a flood routine. Is the pump running with the door locked? Is there water visible in the tub? If you remove the top from the cabinet, the pressure switch is mounted at the very top. It will have a very small hose attached to it. If you remove that hose and blow through it (the hose), does air easily pass?

Hi Kelly no water in the drum door will open when plugged out. I have tried the hose and it is fine no problem with it... Light still flashing

That sounds like the main controller is having issues. Can you please post the complete model number?

Where will I find that?? It just says zanussi aquacycle 1000 on the machine itself

Usually on a tag around the opening where the clothes are loaded.
