Check the manual for the meaning of the flashing lights, and then look on this site for solutions to the problem. If all lights are flashing the water fill has probably overflowed into the base pan. It is usually a simple fix that is detailed in several places. Check under Asko dishwashers of different models because many have the same problem.
I have a D3450 that was doing the same. Eventually I ascertained that there was a pressure switch that was not functioning properly. On the D3250 it was only accessible from the rear after taking off the lower panel on the back. It was a black part with a red membrane of sorts. I just disconnected its wire connector instead of replacing the part as it was rather expensive. I've been running mine machine at least 2x day for months since with no problems. Good luck!
The reason our Asko D3250 had this problem was because of a leak. The pump hose (approx. 2" black rubber hose - find it here http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Pump-Hose/8801409/1810263) was split, causing a leak and the blinking heavy wash light. The sensor did its job and picked up the leak. If you're handy you don't necessarily need to call a repairman in to accomplish the work. You don't need to pull the front of the dishwasher apart. Unplug the power to the dishwasher. Take off the back bottom panel. Next, test where the leak is coming from. Place pans below the holes found on the bottom of the dishwasher. They are visible when removing the back panel and are most likely at the rear of the dishwasher. Plug the power back in then start the dishwasher. If your problem is a leak, you will easily spot it with a flashlight. After ordering and installing your part, make sure to dry all water that has settled in the bottom of the dishwasher. You can easily accomplish this through the back of the dishwasher with the panel removed. If it's still damp the sensor will continue to detect water. Once dry, start the cycle to make sure there are no more leaks before reinstalling the panel.
All power and sounds should stop when any dishwasher door is opened. Your door switch may be stuck causing it to continue. The 90 second sound at the beginning of the cycle is the water pump extracting any residual water before taking on clean water for the wash cycle. Any excessive noise from the drain pump could be debris in the pump. e.g. broken glass. You can remove the pump and check it for blockage or any foreign object.
First I would check the water line from the sink that is hooked up to the dishwasher. You may have a screen that plugged up. Also, if you have little pressure at your sink faucet, then you should check your house's water system.
