SOURCE: Samsung dishwasher flashing heavy light

Had a look in the user manual for your dishwasher.http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201211/20121101114232459/DW7933LRASR-00141A-02.pdf

Page 26 shows blinking Heavy light means there is leakage in the dishwasher. Most likely there is water in the base under the drain sump which could cause the flood switch to trip. Turn mains power to dishwasher off. Pull it out from under kitchen bench without breaking the hoses. Put some towels on the floor and turn dishwasher back and forth on incline to get water out. Wait a little and turn on. If no difference then you need to dry the base and find the source of the leak. More likely the door seal.

SOURCE: Samsung dishwasher flashing heavy light

Anytime a dishwasher stops mid cycle and blinks, it is usually because of clogged drain port, and safety switch prevents next cycle, so just blinks. You will probably see bottom of tub filled with water, and float switch is preventing next cycle which is calling for more water, and obviously there is not enough room, so shuts down next cycle. Remove as much water as you can with wet vac or turkey baster to suck out water, then try and see if cycle starts.

Remove bottom of tub filter, look for drain hole usually at back of tub and see if it is clogged, usually visible at top of drain. Pretty easy to fix, just clean out the area of food waste or broken piece from glass, another common sudden blockage. If you have wet vac, place it over drain hole and cup your hand around nozzle of vac and hole to creat seal and suction to insure clog isn't in drain hose.

Good luck, FREE-BUSINESSES.com

Why does heavy light flash and water pump run all the time?


You still have a problem elsewhere in the dishwasher--the light is most likely an error code flashing a certain number of times. If you replaced the main board and the same condition still exists, then the issue probably wasn't the main board but a peripheral device(main pump, drain pump, heater circuit, sensor, etc.) The new main board is sensing the continuing condition.

What causes a Samsung dishwasher to flash heavy and smart auto on control panel


Hello. The lights you describe are an error code that means over-level filling (overflow condition) and/or the leakage sensor underneath has detected water. You need to check underneath the unit for any moisture. There is a leakage sensor located at the center of the base, underneath the unit. If it detects water, it will notify the main board which will stop the unit until the condition is cleared.

Why on the Samsung DTM400 series dishwasher are normal heavy and smart/auto lights all flashing?


That's a High-temp Heating Error. It's usually caused by a bad ECS sensor. You will need to call a professional repairman to replace it. (I recommend Sears).

Normal, heavy, delicate lights stuck on--cant power on or off


If you have tried to unplug from mains power and there is no difference then you will need to provide the actual model number of your dishwasher in comments field.
The Samsung error codes for Normal, Heavy , Delicate lights stuck is not listed. The closest is Normal, Heavy, Quick which relates to a Low Water level. Also confirm which lights are stuck in your case and whether these are flashing or not.

After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.
