Omega DW300XA, The intensive light is flashing & audible alarm indicating "too much inlet water" fault.
I had the problem on an Omega DW420XA. There are 3 things you need to do before starting on the whole replacing parts palava:
1. Detach the exhaust pipe (usually a grey crinkly pipe) from the sink u-bend. Stick a screw driver into the ubend connector and make sure there is no gunk there blocking it up.
2. Remove the filters at the bottom o the machine and give them a good clean. Stick your fingers into the sump where the water collects and get every last little piece out. You may have to twist your finger into the space around the impeller.
3. Pull the dishwasher forward from under the bench and tilt it forwards. Some water may run out, but this is causing the sensor to think it is not discharging. Note you may have to free the power, inlet and outlet pipes from getting stuck as you pull it forwards.
With any luck it will now run (mine did).
