The lights you have flashing is error code F03 which is a temperture sensor fault. Its usually the wash sensor thats the fault here.

What you need to do is unplug the washer and pull it out and remove the back panel.

There you will see the back of the drum.

There you will see the round temperture sensor disc. It will have 2 wires going to it. Check the wires incase theres a broken wire there.

If the wires are fine then you need to test the sensor with a multi meter and see if faulty. It should give a reading in K ohms. If faulty then you need to replace the temperture sensor and that should cure the fault here.

Thats what the error code means by the lights you have flashing so check that if you can and see what you find.
