My hotpoint WD420 goes through washing fine but when it comes to drying it, 3 lights will flast.

The power flashes quickly, the other 2 flash slower. (machines off so cant see whats flashing)

The washing is soaked with hot water.

I've had the filter out of the back and it was bad, but the problems still happening.

Any ideas?

Had a play with it, and made sure all the connectors were ok.

Its doing the same thing as before, but the lights are different to what i thought.

The lights flashing are...

Reduce creases and Time saver (2 & 4)

What do these mean?

Thanks.
