Actually, I had done all that and am very good about rinsing machine daily. Finally, had Miele come out and our problem was the beans. We had been using Starbucks beans for 4 years and there is just too much oil on the beans even with the cleaning. The screens were fine, but there was something that I honestly can't remember that was clogged. The technician had to take apart the brew unit to get it cleaned. There was so much "gunk" that had built up over the years even with the descaling and rinsing. We now use Dunkin Donuts coffee and it is amazing how there is no oil on those beans. Anyway, thanks for the help.

OK. Here's the deal. I struggled with this CVA 4070 (F 73) problem also recently, and even posted a questions in the cyber world about it. I jiggled, re-cleaned the machine, re-read the Miele manual, and scoured the internet for schematic drawings of this brewing unit's insides. No luck. Finally after finding out I'd have to pay $199 just for a service clown to walk in my front door, I said NYET!!! I must solve by myself. If I can take apart & fix my Dyson, etc, etc, I WILL DO THIS TOO!! (MUST HAVE COFFEE>>>)
Pull out the brewer, turn it a quarter-turn to your right, and look at the spot where that small black plastic piece -- shaped like a block "M" or block "W" -- should be situated. Pull it out, if it isn't out already. Don't worry about yanking it out or harming these parts, said the Miele troubleshooter guy in New Jersey on the phone. They're "made from the same plastic used in football helmets." Okey-dokey.
This approx. 1.5" wide, blocky plastic piece is part of the "slide" that takes the brewed coffee grounds into the waste container. When positioned correctly, it looks like a block "W," with the "wings" ointing up, and slides in just under a brown 1.5" flat piece. A small, down-facing tab on the brown piece clicks into the "W" piece and holds it in place. The "W" should feel fairly solid, although it is not rigidly in place, as the entire mechanism is a movable system to deposit the grounds in the waste receptacle.
Put everything back inside your CVA 4070 "love" machine, hit "on," and wait for it to go through its warm-up. No F73 message? Yeah! Mission Accomplished. You, like I, have fixed your Miele, saved your family relationships, and saved yourself a bundle from unnecessary service calls.

The water system fault means that there is too much water on the bottom drip pan and it has tripped the sensor at the bottom of the machine. Usually removing the bottom grate where the cups sit and taking some paper towels and soaking up the water/spillage will fix this problem
