Hi, I'm Daniel and I'll be helping you today I've been repairing white goods for 20+ yrs. and currently work for a well-know manufacturer.
That light flashing is a time out heating error code.
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 It should read about 28 Ohms roughly. If so you will need to replace the heater element. If the heaters fine then on some models theres a thermostat next to the heater. Check this aswell if fitted.
If the above check out ok then its more likely to be a faulty control board.
If you need anymore info just get back to me.
