Could be scale build up. Do you have well water? You should run a descaler or white vinegar through the unit often to keep the boiler outlets clean.

Unless you are saying that the pump just doesn't run, ie, no noise, vibration, etc. Then, thanks for the warning that their pumps are bad.

Neglecting a minor leak will always become excessive if not stopped.
The location of leak as described suggests the leakage coming from a defective membrane regulator or pump outlet valve (depending on the model ESAM 3500N, S or other). Please check the type of part on the on the outlet end of the pump, before placing order).
The membrane regulator malfunctions when the machine is not descaled regularly every two or three months.
The descaling tablet provides preventative treatment. This only delays the malfunctions caused by Calcium deposits.
Please replace the membrane regulator or the pump outlet valve as the case may be, and O-ring at its joint with PTFE tube.
Following this, descale the machine using Best descaler regularly every two or three months. Below is the link to order membrane regulator and Best descaler.

Suddenly stopped working.

If you are talking that the while unit failed or just the coffee? If the light comes on and the coffee is not brewing than it is the heat plate fuse. You need tamper torx bits to open the unit and replace the fuse, radio shack sells them.

DeLonghi EC701 Pump out

I had the same issue. Scale build up in the port that routes water to the boiler outlet for the coffee filter basket. Frother tube was fine.

I used CLR to open it back up. Used 1 part to 4 of water and ran a whole reserviour through the unit. At first, it only dripped and then finally it blew open when the CLR dissolved the scale.

Make sure to run lots of clean water through the unit after so that you don't end up drinking acid with your next cup. I ran about a gallon through to rinse it out.

No water ever makes it through the pump

I just got mine working again. There was scale in the outlet port for the coffee basket.
Try cleaning by running through a solution of CLR and water (1 to 4 parts) and keep running until the blockage dissolves and flow is restored. Then run another solution again just to clean it for good.

MAKE SURE TO RINSE OUT THE RESERVIOUR VERY WELL. Should run clear without foam after about a gallon of clean water.
