washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably
clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can
get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If
the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose
that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in
the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item
To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.
Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.
If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

SOURCE: what does error f27 mean?
"F27" is an Overflow Condition error. The following link explains how to troubleshoot:
This can be one of the more difficult error codes to diagnose because there are so many potential causes. Read through the information provided and try to eliminate the easy (and obvious) things first. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this help you.
HINT: One obvious symptom that helps narrow down a potential cause is the fact that the washer does not stop filling with water even when unplugged. More than likely, you have a defective water inlet valve that is causing this.

Check your lid switch. This is the most common cause of the problem you are experiencing. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, a wash tub that will not drain, and stopping right after the wash cycle and not advancing to rinse or spin cycles.
The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:
On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.
A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:
This is a very simple and inexpensive repair that you can do without the assistance of a repairman. The average price is about $20 - $30 if you perform the repair yourself. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare. The part number for a replacement for your washer is 3949238.
NOTE: You DO NOT need to drain the washer to replace the lid switch. Once a defective switch is replaced, the washer will drain.
If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful.
