When I hit the start button on my GE dishes washer the light in the front is blinking and it will not go on

This sometimes happens when there is a problem with the door latch system or switch. Your door may be closed but the control still thinks it is open. Check the door latch and switch alignment. GE had a problem with the doors dropping slightly about a year ago. the latch looks like a arrow head on top of the door center that pushes into the switch that is mounted on the dishwasher body. If the arrow head is slightly lower than the part on the body you will get the exact problem you are having. GE has hinge shims that they install to raise the door up slightly to fix the problem. Not sure your dishwasher is one of these without a model number.

The start light is flashing on my GE dishwasher?

What's the model number? How old is this dishwasher? The new GE dishwashers (less than 3 years old) have a weakness in the door switch/latch assembly, and that would cause the light to flash - it wants you to press Start and close the door, but it's not recognizing that the door is closed.
