Question about Dishwashers
The flashing lock light problem might be caused by a stuck key on the touch panel console.
If the control board detects that a key is stuck, then the dishwasher will suspend operation until the key is unstuck. If a key without a light is stuck or multiple keys are stuck, the control will flash the Lock light.
The way to fix this is to replace the touch panel console.

look for the lock symbol, it should be on the heated dry pad. Press and hold it until the lock led turns off. if that doesn't do it, press the keys in this order..high temp-heated dry-high temp-heated dry. All lights should light and it will go into the test mode. Advance it through the test mode by pressing start until it finishes.
please rate my suggestion..........

Hi I am Vortash it sounds very much like the actual door lock switch is either faulty ( the switch that tells the machine programer the door is shut and allows the cycle to start ) or the programer itself has a fault and is not recieving the signlal . I think the latter from what you say the machine cools ( programer ) and it opperates for a while till fault re occurs in the programmer and stops the cycle because it says the door has been opened .and that is after you unplug it for a while .. if it did it all the time I would have thought lock switch .. but I am thinking you need a new programmer or at least that one repaired .. cheapest thing to try first is a new door switch to see if it cures the problem .. regards Vortash

To start turn control on off position. Trip the circuit breaker or unplug the power cord and connect everything back.
If that reset the machine then the problem had been just temporary.
If that did not work, then proceed with some basic troubleshooting, checking if there is water inside the machine, checking and unblocking the drain hose, unblocking drain pump hose, and if cycle starts checking if water is getting inside the machine from inlet valve. Also ensure that the inlet hose is not kinked, and that water is flowing with pressure from the water supply at the back.
If that does not help , then you start the real troubleshooting and repair.
In that case let me know the make and model, getting model number printed on service tag would be better.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello John Schmader - Sounds like the washer could be experiencing a communication error with main control board, faulty door lock assembly, pump or the timer itself is not operating correctly. Is the unit making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose or pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. Does the washer display an error code? Try pressing and holding the START and PAUSE/CANCEL button simultaneously. All LED's will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking LED's. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the START and PAUSE/CANCEL buttons are pressed. A two second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify an error (if one displays).
