Sounds like there are a couple of problems -
First, are you certain that the coffee basket is clean? If the coffee basket has a valve on the bottom that allows you to remove the carafe to pour a cup of coffee, make sure the valve is clean. Being dirty would cause it to trickle coffee slowly into the carafe, and will hold coffee in the basket too long.
2nd, you may need to flush the water heating system as they can become corroded with precipitated solids from the water.
To do this, mix 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water in the carafe. Pour into the coffee maker and tell it to make coffee. Do this a couple of times, using a fresh mix of vinegar and water each time. Pour the used mixture down the drain.
When you feel it is clean, follow it up with a fresh pot of water. Then wash and rinse the carafe.
The coffee maker is now ready for it's next use.

Vinager and water are great for cleaning your coffee machine just run the mixture through the machine as you would just plain water as if you were making coffee. It might take three run throughs to clean it well, some may suggest bleach however, it takes a few rinses to get that smell out and it tends to transend to your cup. Not a happy java experience.
You will mix it 25/75 vinager/water just plain white will do, nothing fancy. It works has worked for a long time. For at least 50yrs that I know of...
