Can you help?

My washing machine has stopped working, all I have are fast flashing lights everywhere?
On the left are five buttons but only the top four are flashing. Along the top are another five buttons, only the one on the right is flashing and finally the on/off button is falshing.
What is going on here? can you advise me???

Rocks, thanks again.

Have diconnected the card, noted all the wires down. Will take it to work tomorrow and give Tony at EMW a call.

Hopefully he will have one in stock for me. You have been a real help, many many thanks - may have saved me a few quid as well.

Cheers Rocks, you a real gem mate..
