I had this problem too. The instruction manual says to turn the steam knob only half way counter-clockwise after pressing the button for 5 seconds, but you need to turn it ALL the way to have the procedure start (at least, that was the solution with my machine). Good luck!

SOURCE: hello i have an Delonghi esam

I had this problem until I realised that you need to switch the machine off by pressing the on/off button on the front of the machine first *before* switching it off at the back and unplugging it. This moves the infuser unit further to the bottom and then allows you to take it out.

ha this is the same problem i had just last week at a customers house with the same machine , the knob does pull off but it is hellish tight and you feel like the valve is about to burst through the front of the machine but it does pull off, when fitting the new knob it is a good idea to put some grease over the shaft before pushing the new knob on as it's nearly as hard pushing the new one back on as taking the old one off.

Hi i have a esam5500 coffee and cuppuccino maker. How to remove the front cover of the machine because the cappuccino BUTTON is not in place (loose) or if is possible to fix it


I had the same problem but with the power button on the front panel.

It's a major operation involving opening the machine.

Disconnct completely from mains power.

On the rear there are 2 screws middle top and middle bottom When they are removed the back can be slid upwards and removed. Then there are four screws on the back holding the side panels.. When removed the sidepanels can be slid backwards and of.

Pry of the little plastic button on top of the grinder adjuster in the bean container. Underneath is a screw that needs to be removed.

The top is held by 2 screws on the forward part along the top. When removed the top plate can be pried upwards.

The front is the held by 2 extra screws half way down along the front. When you removed these the front along with the panel can be taken of.

The panel is connected with the electronics with a flat cabel that runs along the left side. Pry the cabel lock open at the electronics board and fre the cable.

Now you have the front panel free and can work with it.

On the cabk there are 4 bigger screws. remove these and notice how the back plastic cover and the front are layered.

With the 4 screws removed you can lift the panel with the buttons out forn the front panel and se how the buttons a mountet.

My power button was broken of the little tabs that held it and had fallen down behind the panel. I reattached the button with som gaffer tape loosely on the back so it stayed in place but had movement enough to be usable.

Clean out the interrior while you are in there.

Assembly is the reverse and everything is back in order.

There is a youtube video with a complete dismantle process:

How can I change the mirror control panel?


Hi there,

Firstly, get a replacement switch. Carefully take off the cover of the door handle (mine is the diagonal kind - 2002) and then unscrew the two screws at the top and bottom of the handle. Then Unscrew three screws at the very bottom of the door panel - they are the "star" kind - a tork screw. Carefully pull out the snaps on the sides of the door panel. They just pop out of holes in the door frame. Be carefull not to pull too fast or suddenly. Then pull straight up on the door panel. It can be very sticky at the top but gently work it out of the rubber slot at the top. OPTIONAL: Now that the panel is free, disconnect the electrical and door pull cables. Make a note of what connected where! You can skip this step if you can do the next step in a tight spot... You'll see the assembly for the door handle, lock, and mirror switch. There is a screw by the door handle. Unscrew that, then carefully pry open the clips that hold the assembly in. The whole assembly will come forward out of the door panel. Now, carefully unclip the mirror switch. It will come forward out of the assembly. Place the new switch back in its place, and re-clip. AT THIS STAGE, RE-CONNECT THE ELECTRICAL WIRE TO THE SWITCH AND TEST! Replace the assembly back in the door panel. Replace the screw by the door handle and re-connect the wires and cables. Then "Hook" the top of the door panel on the rubber slot. You can check the other door to make sure it's right. Carefully snap back in the sides of the door panel then reconnect the three screws at the bottom. Finally, replace the two screws in the door handle, and replace the door handle cover.

Best of luck

There is an emergency access cord provided for the manual unlocking of the washer door and can be accessed by removing the dispenser bezel. Open the dispenser cover and remove the four screws securing the dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off. Once the bezel is removed, look for the nylon cord near the door lock assembly through the opening left by the dispenser bezel. Pull the cord away from the door lock assembly to pivot the mechanical opener and push the locking lever into the open position. Open and close the door several times then start a new cycle.

Check the door lock assembly if the problem persists and replace it when necessary. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Access to the door lock assembly requires the removal of the front panel, dispenser bezel, and lifting of the top cover.

Open the dispenser cover and remove the four screws securing the dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off.

Open the washer door and remove the two screws securing the door hinge and the front panel to the front shroud assembly. Do the same to the two screws on the opposite side of the door opening.

Disengage the front panel posts from the clips located on the face of the cabinet by grasping the upper part of the front panel posts and pressing in on the outer edges then twisting it inward. Once the front panel posts are released from the cabinet, tilt the front panel away from the cabinet and remove it.

Remove the two 5/16" hex-head screws securing the two top cover hold down brackets; one on each side. Swing the brackets to the outside to unhook it from the lip of the top cover then lift the top cover to expose the door lock assembly. Prop up the top cover to prevent it from falling back into position while accessing the door lock assembly.

Disconnect the wiring harnesses from the door lock assembly and the two mounting screws then rock the top of the assembly forward and lift it off the front shroud assembly.

Clean the wiring terminals and the connectors then reseat the connectors several times. Replace the door lock assembly when the problem is not resolved.

Install the new door lock assembly in reverse of the steps given above. Review the steps thoroughly for easy reassembly of the washer. Make sure the wiring harnesses are properly and firmly seated to the door lock assembly terminals. The door lock assembly is part number 22004435.

Have LG 1812 front load washer, it is making noise when water tries to drain out, we were able to drain the hose but unable to remove the drain pump filter-just spins


Unscrew the drain pump filter counterclockwise to remove it from the pump assembly. If it cannot be removed, you need to replace the pump casing (part #3108ER1001B) and the pump filter (part #383EER2001A).

Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the two screws at the rear of the top panel attaching it to the cabinet. Slide the panel rearward then lift it off the washer.

Disconnect the control panel wiring harness from the main board assembly. Pull the dispenser drawer out until it stops then press the locking tab and pull the drawer out completely.

Remove the two screws from the drawer opening then lift the left side of the console and pull it off the cabinet.

Remove the three screws from the upper part of the front panel and the screw from the filter cover.

Insert a putty knife blade or similar flat tool in both sides of the filter cover then pull it out of the cabinet. Remove the screw from the lower side of the front panel.

Open the washer door and remove the wire and spring holding the door gasket to the outer lip of the door opening. Stretch the spring with a pair of needle-nose pliers to clear the wire off the lip of the door opening then remove the wire and spring assembly.

Peel off the door gasket into the drum then tilt the front panel and disconnect the door switch wiring harness from the door switch terminals. Lift the front panel and remove it from the cabinet.

Compress the spring clamps holding the pump inlet and outlet hoses then move the clamps away from the pump casing.

Remove the two screws securing the pump to the base of the washer. Press down the tab at the back of the pump assembly and push the assembly into the washer then lift the pump assembly up and out of the washer. Remove the hoses from the pump assembly.

Unscrew the pump from the casing and inspect the impeller for any damage. Rotate the impeller to check whether there's restriction. Replace the pump (part #4681EA2001D) if the impeller is broken or does not rotate freely.

Install the pump assembly and reassemble the washer by reversing the given disassembly steps.

DeLonghi Magnifica always asks "Insert Infuser Assembly"


on my machine, the two screws that attach the infuser receptacle to the insides of the machine came loose. You can see those two stainless hex socket screws when you remove the infuser by grabbing its two red tabs and pulling it out. Just use a hex shaft
screwdriver (size 3mm or thereabout) to tighten them.

Need to replace door gasket


Remove the top cover by removing the 2 screws in the back.
Remove the dispenser drawer completely.  
Remove the 2 screws on front of the panel where the dispenser drawer was removed.  
Remove the screw on the right side behind the front panel.  
Disconnect the wire harness behind the panel.  
Starting on the dispenser side with your finger, pry forward the top of the control panel until it unsnaps.  Continue this all the way to the right and remove the control panel.  
Go to the bottom filter door and remove the door.  Unscrew the one screw below the filter cap.  Remove the plastic insert covering around the filter cap.  
Locate a small screw at the very bottom of the frame just below the filter cap and remove.  Sometimes there may be 2 but usually there is only one.
Open the door and locate the spring clamp usually located at the bottom of the door seal.  Remove the spring clamp.  This will loosen the front of the door gasket for removal from the frame.  
On the right of the door gasket is the door latch assembly.  Unscrew the 2 screws and set the latch hanging by the wire harness.
Remove the 4 or 5 top screws holding the front panel assembly.  Once they are removed, the front panel will lift up and out.
NOTE!!!  THIS JOB REQUIRES 2 SPECIAL TOOLS FROM LG TO REMOVE THE SPRING CLAMPS ESPECIALLY THE REAR CLAMP.  THE SPRINGS ARE SET VERY TIGHT SO IT IS NOT EASY TO REASSEMBLY WITHOUT THE SPECIAL TOOLS.
