Question about Ascaso Dream Espresso Machine
Try the priming method described in the manual first.
If that doesn't work... the method below worked for me after my Dream was in storage for a year and had been shipped around a bit.
1) attach a water bottle to the tube in the water tank (you may have to remove the filter) - get a good tight seal and fill the bottle about half full with clean water2) hold the bottle up as high as the tube allows, without kinking the tube3) squeeze the bottle gently (there will be some resistance) so that water goes into the tube, and release4) a bubble will probably appear at the machine end of the tube - tap the tube until the bubble has risen into the bottle5) repeat 3 and 4 until no more bubbles appear6) remove the bottle and replace the water tank and tube filter7) prime the pump again (open the steam valve and run the pump to get 1/2 cup of water from the steam nozzle)8) make some coffee. Or, this might be a good time to descale...

It does sound like the pump. If it isn't sucking any water up and it is very noisy then it is def the pump. I can get these for you if you are still looking.
All the best
