When you switch it on can you still select the wash type ?
If you can, when you shut the door does it start the cycle normally by pumping out the sump, but then when the wash pump (the cause of the main noise during the cycle) would normally start it stops and beeps - opening the door then shows the flashing error code ?

If your symptoms are the same as above or similar, suspect the heater is stuffed. My BFI62 did the above and it turned out to be a faulty (open circuit) heater. As I had no knowledge of dishwashers at the time, I called in a repair guy. As soon as he saw the fault code he suspected the heater - seems a batch of heaters (from the USA) had proved very unreliable (apparently Hotpoint got compensation from the manufacturers because of the number of problems it caused them). The replacement was made in Germany and the repair guy said he'd not known one of those to go faulty !
The repair guy diagnosed the heater open circuit from the control panel inside the door without even removing the dishwasher from it's location. Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to note which wires ran off the board to the heater. Changing the heater needed it out and on it's side (be prepared for quite a lot of water on the floor).

Finally, when he'd fitted the new heater, it took him two goes to get the pipes either side of it to seal properly - quite common apparently and the source of even more water on the floor !

Hope this helps.

Consult manual under troubleshooting.
if no manual, or if it does not address this, consult service center.

one likely cause you can try first is to disconnect it from power via the cord or a breaker. after a brief period, it may reset itself.
otherwise you likely have a logic board issue.

logic boards seem to be very vulnerable in dishwasher environments. the type of issue you have is very common among most brands. don't feel alone.

good luck

Error messages.
The dishwasher is equipped with a
safety system which is able to
detect any operating anomalies.
These anomalies are signalled by
the rapid flashing of one of the
wash cycle indicator lights M.
If the indicator light for the soak
cycle flashes (see wash cycle table),
cancel the wash cycle by following
the instructions indicated in the
"Modifying a wash cycle in
progress" paragraph on page 4.
Now check whether there is any
water in the mains supply and that
the tap is turned on; if the error
message persists, then call for
technical assistance, indicating
which message appeared.
If the indicator light for any wash
cycle apart from the soak cycle
flashes rapidly, turn the appliance
off and call for technical
assistance, indicating which
message appeared.
Troubleshooting
You have checked
everything, but the
dishwasher still doesn't
work and the problem
persists?
Call an authorised service centre
near you and remember to mention:
? the type of malfunction
? the model mark (Mod?.) and the
serial number (S/N?.) indicated on
the rating plate located on the inner
door, to one side.

When you keep the button pressed for a few seconds the lights go off, this resets the dishwasher. Then press the p button again to the program you want 1st light is heavy soil 2nd light is normal soil, 3rd light is eco wash, 4th light is rinse. At the end of the cycle the program light you have selected will flash.

I think if you push the heated wash and heated dry button several times until all the buttoms light up this will fix your problem.

 A clean light that flashed repeatedly 7 times then off. Reset as above with the heated wash and heated dry buttons. You may then noticed a reduced flow from the pump so dissasemble the lower arm and water inlet assy.You may find it mostly plugged with foregin matter and some othe junk. Upon removal of that stuff and reassembly,It may work as new!
