The drain screen or drain itself is likely plugged. I would try and clean that out. If needed, gain access to the pump and check for clogs there as well. You may have to bucket out the remaining water so you can get access to the drain and screen

F-27 light on

I assume that simply pressing PAUSE/CANCEL does not clear it. This indicator will come on if the overflow contact on the pressure switch is closed for more than 60 seconds. Is the drain pump running constantly with this indicator on? It should. If not maybe the pump is bad. If the drain pump is running then make sure that the inlet valve is shutting off the water. Does the indicator stay on even if the drain pump is working and you turn off the hot and cold water faucets? If not, then there is something wrong with the inlet valve. If so then I would suspect a bad pressure switch.

I have a kenmore model 110 24952300 twice in last 2 years it has overflowed?

Could be that the drain is plugged by debris. Otherwise it could be that your model drain valve is faulty and not tripping properly when operating at high volume. Check the level of the tub when observing the overflow, could be that drain pressure has something to do with the overflow.

I have the pentair 011523 whisperflo and our spool is going to overflow from all the rain we have been having. I know that there is a way to attach a hose flip a switch and drain some of the water to...

To drain the pool, you have to change the position of your "backwash" valve.
Shut off the pump.
See if there is a DRAIN position on the backwash valve.
You could probably use the BACKWASH position, too, only water will go through the filter and then out the normal backwash pipe.
Turn the pump on briefly to see which pipe water comes out. Shut the pump.
Put discharge hose on that pipe.
Turn pump on until pool is low enough.
Return backwash valve to filter position.

My Kenmore moel #11027082602 ran while we were

Yes it is very possible. If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Water pours from drain hose overflow in front of washer

That drain hose in front has a stopper, to prevent discharge. Either it is not there or not tight or something. You can always clog it shut with a round wood bit inserted or something........I don't think it is too difficult.

Water keep refilling

This is commonly caused by a condition known as "siphoning". The following link explains:

The washer is filled when the solenoids on the water inlet valve are activated, allowing water to flow through the fill hoses. Once the washer reaches a predetermined level (as determined by the load level selector dial), the pressure switch senses the water level and shuts off the inlet valve. If the pressure switch was causing this problem, your water level would continue to rise to the point that the washer would overflow. If the water inlet valve was defective and would not shut off, you not only would have a washer that would potentially overflow, but it would also continue to fill when the washer was not in use. The key to diagnosing your problem is the fact that the washer continually DRAINS and cannot maintain the water level. Take your drain hose and pull it up from the standpipe. If you had the hose shoved down in the standpipe too far, or if the drain hose was fitted too tight, a sucking sound may be heard as you pull the hose out. You should only have about 6 inches of hose in the drain. There needs to an air gap around the top of the standpipe as well. This prevents a vacuum from forming which causes the water to be siphoned from the wash tub.

Read through the link I provided and let me know if you have questions. If you require additional assistance, please let me know before rarting the solution. I hope this helps you.

I have blew threw the clear tube and it still over flows?

i assume it's a top load and not a front load ..could be bad pressure switch,small hole somewhere in clear pressure switch hose or least likely a hole on inside within air dome area but not through tub to cause leak

Free standing 25lbs ice machine

It sounds as though the bin therrmisotr is defectice, which as you stated the unit is not sensing the temperature and just continues making ice.

The second issue would appeare to be a drain issue, it should be a gravity drain into either an open drain or a sealed pump.
