Hi, I'm Daniel welcome to JustAnswer, Im reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily

Hi

Are you sure its all the lights thats flashing?

If you look at the 4 lights on the right hand side which is the start button and the 3 cycle phase lights. Are all of them flashing?

If not then which ones are flashing?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Hi Daniel T.....all the lights are flashing....unfortunately the machine is in the Caribbean so i cannot verify the sequence of the flashings at this time
However it would be helpful if you help me understand what the difference in the various sequence of the flashings signifies and their remedy. *****@******.***

It would be nice to purchase the appropriate part or parts for the machine if needed to take with me back to Grenada. the
washer has not been extensively used hence our wanting to get it going
