That blinking light is trying to tell you that there is something wrong with the dishwasher. You need to fix the problem or else that blinking light will come back. And the number of times it blinks (before it pauses and repeats) will tell you (or a technician) what is wrong. How many times does it blink?

Check your heating element..
A bad heating element causes many problems in dishwashers…
I would agree with you. Everything you say here certainly points to a faulty heating element. The original is fitted with two factory fitted clips so you may need to go to your local garage and get two jubilee clips as they don't usually come with the new element.
Control panel which is a bit sensitive might need re-booting. Mine did the same and had a mind of its own, doing what it wanted, lights flashing all over the place, not completing the wash etc etc.
Switch off the machine and unplug from the mains. Leave for 10 minutes.
Plug back in, switch the machine on to your required programme and if ,like me, you are lucky, your machine should work again. If it happens again in the future you know what to do. Failing that go to the Hotpoint website, find the customer service number and ask if there is anything else you can do yourself to solve the problem, before paying for a service call. They are really helpful
It could be that it was opened before it had finished its last cycle. When you switch it on again, it wants to finish. You could either leave it on until the drying light goes off, or force it to finish the cycle. I'm not familiar with that model, but on mine I have a Stop option on the dial. On the machine I had before, I had to press two buttons together to force the end of cycle. Worth a try. Good luck.
My dishwasher Indesit DI67S will not run on the number 1 cycle. It will fill and then when that programme finishes it jumps straight to the drying cycle missing all the rinses out etc. If on the number 2 programme it goes all the way through but then doesn't dry. I've also noticed that the water doesn't seem to be heating up much and certainly isn't drying. Is this the element or something else? Once its reached the drying cycle the light for this just flashes then I have a job to try and reset the machine. It can take endless attempts. Will switching the machine off at the mains solve anything or is it the element? Thankyou
