"F27" is an Overflow Condition error. The following link explains how to troubleshoot:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608602-f27_error_code

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.

What is F27 error code?


The F27 error code indicates an overflow condition. If the washer is overfilled and continues to fill with water, this would indicate that you have an inlet water fill valve that is stuck open. If you unplug the washer and water continues to fill the tub, then the inlet fill valve assembly will need to be replaced. Make sure that the drain system is properly installed according to the installation instructions. An improperly installed drain system could result if siphoning of drain water back into the washer.
Check to see if the drain pump is working properly to pump out the water. When the F27 occurs, the drain pump will run constantly to pump out the water. The door will remain locked. Shut off the water supply faucets behind the washer. If water is not being pumped out of the washer, you could have a clog in the drain pump or drain hose. The following link of a previous answer provides advanced troubleshooting for a drain problem:
Why won't my HE4t washer drain?
If the washer is not overfilling and the F27 remains even after the washer is drained, then it is likely that you have a failed pressure switch. A failed electronic control board in the washer could also cause this problem. To access the pressure switch, unplug the washer and remove the top panel. Screws at the very back of the top panel secure it to the washer. Remove these screws and pull the top panel slightly back and then up and off of the washer. Sometimes, you can reset a stuck contact in a pressure switch by tapping on it with the handle of a screwdriver. I you cannot reset it, the pressure switch will need to be replaced. If you have the same problem after replacing the pressure switch, you will likely need to replace the control board in the washer.

Water doesn't drain out. keeps getting 2 different errors F01 and F27. what does mean?


F1 is a pump drive failure and F27 is an overflow condition. Both point to a pump problem. Remove the front panel and unscrew the pump filter. Water will come out, so be prepared! If the pump filter is clean, you will likely need to replace the pump.
