If you're certain this model number is correct, the error code indicates a "drain timeout error". This means the machine has tried and failed to pump out within a specified time limit. Please run through the following checklist to correct this problem:
1. Check and clean the filters
2. Check the drain hose isn't kinked and check for any blockages in the drain hose.
3. Make sure the hose has a high loop as per the installation instructions
4. If draining into a garbage disposal . . .
- Remove the plug from the disposal to allow air entry / eliminate any potential vacuum.
- Run water through the disposal to check for blockages
5. Ensure dishwasher is level, front to back and left to right.
When you've checked all of the above, reset the dishwasher by holding the START button for a minimum of four seconds to clear the error message.
My slight question mark over the model number is because you referred to "heavy cycle". The VDB450SS does have a heavy cycle but it's called "pot & pans" on this model. Other Viking dishwashers explicity say "Heavy" but a flashing LED above heavy on another model may indicate an entirely different fault. This is an overfill error code on some models.
If you definitely have the VDB450SS, you should be able to solve the problem using the checklist above. If you have any other model. please reply to me by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question for further assistance. Please verify the correct model number if/when replying and whether any other LEDs are also flashing.
