Re: Clening residual coffee from body of coffee maker.
You don't want to put the coffee maker in the dishwasher. if you going to that, you might as well go get a new one, because after you put it through the wash, it will be useless.
to clean the inside of the coffee maker, use vinegar, run it thought, then use half vinegar and half water run it through again. you might have to do that few times. that is the only way coffee maker manufacture recommend.

There is no clean button.
To clean the scale buildup in the water system, you need to run a couple of cups of clear vinegar throught the system, run 24 cups of water (2 brew cycles) through the system to flush.
If the buildup is severe, you can substitue a calcium cleaner like CLR (Calcium-Lime-Rust) cleaner in place of the vinegar for a more aggressive cleaning.
Depending upon the hardness of your water, you need to do the cleaning every 30-45 pots of coffee.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.
Howdy. I'm going to take one for the team on this one and tell you what I found out from Bosch. They say nothing is ever to be put in the coffee grinder area except coffee. They understand that while it is a popular home grinder tip to clean with rice, that does not include integrated coffee systems like the Benvenuto. Sadly, they went on to tell me that they had no suggestions at all for removing the residue from the workings of the machine. I had thought that eventually, over time, it might rinse away. am very sorry to deliver this news and hope someone somewhere has a better answer for you. Best regards, Farmerbear
sounds a if your heating element isn't being allowed to generate enough hot to send the hot water up the pipe, see most coffee makers do not actually pump the water, what happens is that the water passes through a heater that rapidly heats the water causing steam to push some of the water up the pipe(also creating the popping noise you hear), if the pipe is coated with residue from the water(most water has calcium and other mater which is deposited on the pipe walls during rapid heating), you need to do a cleaning cycle either using a commercial cleaning solution made for coffee pots or you can run some vinegar through it stopping for a few minutes about half way through the amount you are using to allow some of the vinegar to dissolve the residue from the pipe walls. that should clear up the problem, you should clean it at least every couple of weeks to keep it running smoothly
try cleaning with white vinegar(50/50 with water)may have calcium deposits supposed to clean once a month-let it soak overnight use coofee filter to catch deposits run numerous times then throughly rinse with water!!! :)
1 part descaler 1 part water put that in our water container stsrt it up rince very good especialy if you use descaler . descaler is better than vinegar descaler melts the calcium vinegar remove calcium in little piece thanks for using fixya pierre
