    Yes, the Delicate light flashing indicates a drain pump error. Most often caused by something hard (like a piece of glass) getting past the filter and getting lodged in the drain pump. Unplug the DishWasher, siphon out the water, pull the DW out, remove the right panel, and you should be able to get to it (although in some Samsung DW's, the drain pump is in the front). You turn the drain pump CCW 1/8th turn to remove it (after finding & releasing the catch). Make sure you sop up all the water that comes out, or you will be dealing with a leaking error after you fix the pump!

SOURCE: fast and delicate flashing

Your control panel is bad.My advice is use your warranty if you have it .If you don't ,toss this machine out,there should have been a re-call on this .You are one of many many that are having to deal with a problem that the manufacturer should be liable for. Dont't let GE (hotpoint) go not knowing that your D/W is broken ,look for a class action law suit to be in the making,which is not enough to correct the problems at hand .I don't advise repairing this unless there is a modified part to replace the defective one. Again I'm with you on this ,and sorry for all the consumers that are ripped off by manufacturers (in my eyes) . Please rate this !

SOURCE: Dishwasher lights blinking

QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.

Samsung dishwasher not pumping water out. "delicate" light blinking and it doesnt appear the pump even tries to come on. the machine just stops after wash cycle then I get the error light.

The Delicate light flashing on Samsung dishwashers indicates a drain error. Possibly a pump/motor assy.
Samsung Dishwasher Not Draining

Doesn't sound like a clogged ECS because it's not draining at all.

Samsung dishwasher heavy and delicate lights blink and cycle stops

The lights that are blinking are indicating an error code--the particular code you describe is a "heater error". You will have to check the circuit for an open heater element, loose or broken wire, defective main control board. The part number for the main board is DE92-02256C. Hope I helped you!

Dishwasher stops when starting to fill

Your dishwasher is equipped with a leakage sensor located at the bottom center of the unit underneath. If any water is detected, the sensor shuts down power until the problem is corrected. Check underneath FIRST to make SURE there is no water dribbling from a small leak. Look for telltale residue trails left from evaporated water on the hoses, lines, motors, etc.
You can enter diagnostic mode by pressing and holding for 2 seconds the POWER, HEAVY, AND DELICATE BUTTONS. All the l.e.d. s will be lit for 2 seconds, then the software version will be displayed in binary code by the blinking of the WASH, DRY, CLEAN, AND CHILD LOCK l.e.d. s. Next, and this will take some practice, if there are error codes present(sets of blinking lights) you will have to read them to be able to find out where the problem(s) is.

•Press the Heavy + Delicate + Power buttons at the same time for two seconds to enter Service Test Mode.
•All LEDs are displayed for the first two seconds and then Software version will be indicated in Binary Code using LEDS ....Wash / Dry / Clean/Child Lock
•Just like the DMR series you advance through the test next mode by pressing the Normal button . However each test will run by itself (see sequence chart on next page) when test has completed an led will light to indicate test is done and you can then advance to the next test .
•Code list and descriptions located on pp#3. Note: Like the DMR series the codes are displayed during operation or test modes and are not stored in memory.

I hope the following pix are clear enough for you to read, if not I will re-send them! I hope this helps you!

My dishwasher(samsung DW7933LRABB) wont fill, it will drain if i put water in the tub. supply is on.

You either have a bad water valve, or a bad case-brake assembly (in which case you should have an error code or blinking light on your console).

Samsung dishwasher flashing heavy light

Had a look in the user manual for your dishwasher.

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.

All my lights on the front of the dishwasher are blinking at me & stops running after 3 minutes into the cycle. What is the cause of this & of course, I am two months past my warranty. Help.

If three lights are blinking (normal, heavy, quick)... I just had this same problem, and I think I figured it out. There was water on the bottom from the last cycle, so I pressed HEAVY and DELICATE at the same time for 3 seconds (you'll see it printed on the control panel), and the unit drained. I was then able to start the new cycle normally without the error. Hope that helps!

I need a diagram and fixing help for a miele G892 SCU plus. The dishwasher starts up with the intake draining light blinking and the saltpc light on. Then the start stop button turn green on. It sounds...

Water pump is for removing water. Check the fill solenoid for water getting into unit. If defective unit will not fill. If stuck in on position you will have flooding. Go to this site for parts help Search Over 2 1 Million Appliance Parts
