Epoca de2gr-replaced solenoid & valve. You can hear solenoid energizing, but not the valve "click". Thus no water. Switch the wires from the other valve, just to see if it would work and it didn't.

Well, there is no "motor" for the water dispenser, only a solenoid valve. However, there could still be a problem with the solenoid even if you do hear it when its energized. Hearing it make a noise does not mean its working properly.

At the end of initial pressure-up after first turning my Epoca on in the morning, the pressure goes past 'normal' until it blows the escape valve. What is wrong? Thanks. Matt

The vent valve is stuck in the open position, leave the steam wand open, while the machine is heating until you hear it hissing, then close steam wand and machine should heat up properly. Replace the vent valve as soon as possible.

I have a Whirlpool Side-by-side Model # ED25DQ 25.2 My ice maker quit working. It is not letting the water come in. The arm is still rising and falling to let the ice out into the bin. What can I do to fix...

1) Check that the water filter is not plugged.
2) Listen if you hear the water solenoid energize as the fingers rotate around and come to a stop. If not, then you could have a bad water valve. If you do, check that something is not blocking the water flow through the valve.
The fill switch on the ice maker may be bad as well, which would prevent you hearing the water solenoid from energizing. It is located inside of the front cover of the ice maker.

Let me know what you find and I will help further.

Water doesn't come out from showerhead once the button is pressed - can hear the water pump going, the top of machine is warm so boiler is functioning.

Does water flow without the portafilter in place, if yes then check grind, if no then remove screw,filter and diffuser and press brew button, if water flows clean filter, if no water then the micro jet in the group head is blocked or the solenoid is clogged.
