Thanks for reaching out to us. Can you please verify the full model number of your device? Thank you.
The lights that blink on both machines are the type of cycle (normal, perm press, timed dry, etc) that is choosen after you turn the "power" on and set the machine up for run. Also, the "start" light blinks.
The lights in the "window" where the time displays that blink are what the machine is actually doing...wash, rinse, dry, cool down. I would expect these lights to blink so you know where you are in the cycle.
