Below is how error codes are deciphered by the cycle lights and water level light. This should help diagnose the failure. I recommend to have service technician diagnose and repair your washer.
LONG DRAIN error code will cause the NORMAL, PERM PRESS, and HANDWASH cycle led lights to come on and the WATER LEVEL light to blink.
If the drain time exceeds 6 minutes, the wash cycle will stop. Push the START/OFF button to reset the mode, a drain task is executed and the previously selected cycle resumes.
Wash cycle stops. Press START/OFF button to enter Standby mode. Execute a Diagnostic Test to drain the water.
The pressure switch contact selected has opened during agitation task. The wash cycle stops and a Drain task is executed. Once the Drain is complete, the cycle stops.
Push the START/OFF button to reset the operation mode, a Fill task is executed and the previously selected cycle resumes.
If the Fill task exceeds 20 minutes, the wash cycle stops. Push the START/OFF button to reset the operation mode, a Fill task is executed according to previous Wash Temp selection and the previously selected cycle resumes.

That happened to me too. If the machine is a few years old and the hoses are not kinked it's possible the water inlet valve needs to be replaced. On this machine there is a triple cold water valve and a single hot water valve. Mine needed the triple valve and it is about $300 if I remember. Check to see if it's the cold or hot water valve by looking at the water filling through the soap drawer for cold or hot water cycles. When the valves go bad they run but the output is very low which causes the light to flash because it can't fill to the correct level.
You can get to the valves by taking off the top. If you don't feel comfortable working on your own machine have a professional do it.

Try turning the machine on its side, undo the bottom and check that the polystyrene float (attached to a switch) is not somehow jammed. This float cuts off the water if the machine leaks internally, and produces the symptoms you describe. It's a really good machine so don't throw it away!!
If that still doesn't help then it might also be the motor brushes, which produce similar symptoms - if your machine starts to fill but then flashes and just drains again, it's almost certainly the brushes. This might be the case after you check the float problem.
