Question about Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine
Our Breville is pumpming water & steam fine, but as soon as we put the Filter handle in, it makes the pumping noises, but nothing comes out. Does anyone have an answer on how to fix this problem?
The grind on the coffee is too fine, try packing it lighter or setting the grind coarser.

Your filter is blocked. It can be one of two things.
1. Coffee - this is obvious
2. Calcium - if you have hard water (i.e. your hot water kettle has white stuff in the bottom attached to the element)
The sure fire solution is to address both and the procedure is easy.
Since the filter is stainless steel, it can take the high temperatures of a stove top. Put the filter directly on the element and set to high for 10 minutes. This will burn off any coffee clogging the filter. After that, mix equal parts of water and vinegar in a pot, put the filter in and boil at max for 15 minutes.
This should do the trick. If it works for you, please click "yes" on "this is helpful", otherwise click "no". I searched for over a year to understand that my issue was a combination of two things so nothing worked for me. Clicking on yes/no would help the community understand if there are other unknown issues.

The filter is most likely clogged... I've heard people putting it in vinegar for 48hrs with some success. Replacement was around 10$ when I asked the store.
They told me this to make it last better:
-Always flush it by doing a pass with no coffee before shutting down the machine.
-Use coffe a bit on the coarse side for expresso. Powder will clog it otherwise.
