Yes, if you have low water pressure then it can cause the washer to flash lights.

As basically the washer is programmed to fill within a certain time so if it has low pressure then it will take longer so the control board pick this up and thats why it flashes the lights. Its to tell you theres an issue in there.

So while you have low pressure im afraid the washer will keep doing this.

As it does run the cycle but just flashes the lights then use it still but just keep an eye on it and see how it goes from there.
