Re: light flashing and it won't close
This is either a misaligned or bad sensor. you can move the sensor up and down until it gets a green light. They must be aligned or the GDO will think there is something in the way. otherwise, it could be wiring. These don't really go bad.

Maybe it's the safety device that prevents the door closing if there is an obstruction. Many of these have a reflector mounted near the floor on one side and an infrared light on the other side. If either end it obstructed, the door won't close.
There should be a door-actuated limit switch which detects that the door is closed, which is probably defective. Look for the plunger, listen for the click. It is the most likely component to fail, and is inexpensive to replace if you're handy. Be sure to have your machine unplugged during repairs.
I suspect that the logic board has developed a fault and probably needs replacing. 'Phone your Indesit Service Centre and get an engineer out. I believe a replacement board costs about £100 fitted, but a 12-month service plan paid monthly may be a bit cheaper, and will cover further breakdowns. Unfortunately, these boards are not the most robust or reliable examples of technology.
Turn off the power to the machine; preferably unplug it.
If you can open the door(?), bale out the drum by hand. I don't think there's a pump/filter access panel on this machine, so it's not easy to get the water out. You could try
disconnecting the discharge hose from the pipework, then lower the open end over a washing-up bowl so that the water drains from the drum by gravity. It depends how close to the floor you can get the open end. When enough water has drained, it should be possible to open the door to remove the laundry. Sorry, this may take a while.
Hope this has helped.
Sound like door/latch is not providing a secure door close anymore. Push on the door when the lights flash and see if this stops the blinking and continues with wash cycle. If it does, there is either somehing interfering withe the door closing fully, or the door latch on the door or dishwasher side is worn/defective.
your door travel screw is set to go too far on the downward travel. you need to set the down travel. It is set to go too far down. find the screw adjustment on the unit that says close and back off the screw a full turn until door stops short of floor. then start turning screw other way until door just touvhes floor.
