Because the timer controls many operations, a faulty timer can cause many problems. The timer is a complex component, so you shouldn't attempt a do-it-yourself repair. Test the timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. To gain access to the timer, remove the front control panel. The timer is directly behind the main timer control knob. Disconnect one of the timer's terminal wires and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. If the meter reads zero, the timer is working. If the meter reads higher than zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.
If possible, use the same procedure to test the selector and cycle switches. The wiring hookup, however, may be too complicated to figure out on either of these switches. If you aren't sure you can deal with these switches, call a professional service person. Replace a faulty timer -- or a faulty control switch -- with a new one made for the dishwasher.
The timer is connected to several wires that supply power to operate the various functions of the dishwasher. To replace the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one. Connect the wires of the new timer one by one, removing the old wire and connecting the new, to make sure you connect the wires correctly. The wires may be friction-fit on the terminals. If they are, use long-nosed pliers to remove the wires. Don't pull up on the wires, or you may break the connection between the wires and the clips.
After connecting the wires, set the new timer in position, secure it the way the old one was secured, and replace the control panel and knobs.

I am slightly unclear if lights 4 & 5 are counted left to right or right to left when facing the dishwasher.
If you are counting right to left - then lights 4 & 5 flashing implies E3 fault - heater failing to heat.
am suspecting the heater unit is failing. Try to run dishwasher on a colder program like DELICATE and see if goes through.
If the flashing does not go away by turning power off and back on then the heater or the thermostat has failed and will need replacement.
Hope this helps fix the problem. Please post a comment if this is not helpful.
