Anonymous asked 8 years ago
My May Tag 3000 Front load washer continues to add water when its at the Drain/Spin cycle. and it gives an error code of f-27. I disconnected it and checked to see if the pump drain filter was clogged. it was I unclogged it but it continues. I shut the water supply off and just set it to Drain and Spin and it worked fine. But it will continue to add water again once I tried using it. So the washer does spin and it does drain but how do I get this continuing of adding water at this point for it successfully drain and spin.

F27 is an Overflow Condition error. <br><br>If the Overflow contact on the pressure switch is closed for more than 60 seconds an Overflow condition will occur. Meaning the water will keep filling.<br><br>In an Overflow condition, the Door may remain locked, and the Drain Pump may run constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the Display is cleared. <br><br>Unplug the unit to service.<br><br>1. First, UNPLUG the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code reappears, proceed to step 2.<br><br>2. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.<br><br>3. Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).<br><br>4. Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects.<br><br>5. Check for Drain Pump Failure.<br><br>6. Check the Inlet Valve for proper shut off.<br><br>7. Check the Pressure switch for proper operation.
