Hotpoint Dishwasher stops after a few minutes

Hi my Hotpoint LST216A dishwasher stops after a few mins and shows flashing lights. The power button and program buttons 1 and 3 keep flashing. Also there is water inside the dishwasher that I am assuming was from the first few mins before the dishwasher stopped. Any idea what this could be?

Cause 1

Heating Element

The heating element heats up the water to operating temperature. If the water doesn’t reach the proper temperature after a set amount of time, a light on the control panel might start flashing. To determine if the heating element has burned out, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the heating element does not have continuity, replace it.

Cause 2

Heating Element Assembly

The heating element assembly heats up the water to operating temperature. If the water doesn’t reach the correct temperature after a set amount of time, a light on the control panel might start flashing. To determine if the heating element assembly has burned out, use a multimeter to test the heating element for continuity.

Cause 3

Check Fault Codes

If the dishwasher lights are flashing or blinking, and there is an error code in the display window, consult the wiring diagram, tech sheet, and dishwasher manual to find out more information about the error.
