Question about Hamilton Beach BrewStation 47214 Coffee Maker
I'm not sure how to replace the inner washer and would like some info on how to do it. I'm afraid that if I don't do it write, I'll have to drink tea tomorrow morning, yuk!! Thanks for the help!!
Cleaning the washer wasn't quite enough to stop my leaks, but I managed to stop them with a few more steps:

Sean F has a great solution. We've had ours for about three years. When it started to leak - I'd pull off the rubber washer with needle nose pliers and clean it and the valve seat on the plastic bowl. It seemed to leak ocassionally and I'd have to clean it more frequently. And we were scrupulous about not getting coffee grounds into the pot which would lodge under the seat and cause a leak. I noticed at the store the newer models have a very fine mesh screen over the valve to keep out coffee grounds.
I was worried following Sean F's solution that if I separated the carafe from the outer shell - I'd get a leak there also. But no - those 4 screws just go into plastic legs molded into the shell and are not exposed to liquid.
It was easy getting out the spring and stretching it a bit - I went about 1/4". After a thorough bowl cleaning, I reinstalled everything and NO Leaks!. Thanks Sean F and FixYa.

Mr Fixit: I removed the washer from the dispenser by first using the eraser end of a pencil to hold the dispenser in the up position, the carefully removed the washer by lifting on one side, and working it around the post until it came off. I cleaned the washer with clear water, making sure that there were no debris on the washer and then reinstalled it, but turned it upside down. Works fine now, and no dripping. Time spent, less the 15 minutes.

I did what is described above and it worked great. Before I found this info, I called Hamilton Beach and they said that replacement gaskets can be bought from them 2 for $5, I in my case I didn't need to order them. They also said supposedly the new brewstations come with a spare.

I have read a lot about replacing those washers. But couldn't find any directions either. I decided that its either I fix it, or buy new.... I just reached in and pulled it off. Comes off fairly easily. Mine (despite several cleanings of the whole system by directions) just had a film of coffee on the washer. Some good scrubbing with some dish soap seemed to work fine. The part I was worried about most was getting it back on. I just reached in and pushed it on. It helped to be pushing the button on the bottom that moves the lever up so coffee can come out.
Just made a pot and it all works fine! No leak! Not sure were replacement gaskets can be found, so if yours is broken or dried out good luck with that.
