you might check the water hose and make sure that it didn't come disconected. sometime they wear out over time and strech becoming loos. and when that happens the maker can not **** the water through the tube into the expressor mix causeing it to make u sucking noise.

Most of the time, you just have to reposition the water reservoir - simply pull it up and then put it back in its proper place. If the water tank is even a centimeter off, the suction tube doesn't properly grab it, so it can't take in water.
If you reposition the water tank, and the EM-100 is still not sucking any water out of the tank, there may be a problem with the water reservoir tank itself. Call Cuisinart - I can't remember the Canadian number off-hand (The EM-100C is a Canadian model, so I'm assuming you're in Canada) - and have them send you a new water tank.
Good luck! Let me know if you need any more help with this machine - I am a huge raving fan.

Very strange problem for that model. I would remove the portafilter holder, and then run 3 cups distilled white vinegar through the machine - let it run on the espresso setting first, then let it run on the steam/water setting, with the function knob turned to water, and not steam. Clean any espresso grinds off the metal element that the portafilter holder usually conceals. Then try making a batch using the double filter basket, but only use a tiny amount of espresso - don't tamp very hard. If all is well, proceed to use the espresso maker. If not, call Cuisinart - that model has a 3-year warranty.

Agree about cleaning / replacing gasket -- BUT....not every espresso machine should be backflushed!!!
Before you attempt to backflush your machine be sure that it has a three-way valve. Otherwise you may damage the machine.
