Question about Saeco VIA Venezia
No water comes through the filter to make espresso. The steam works fine and it doesn't work with portafilter removed either, so it's not the grounds. Water looks like it's trying to pump through the hose. Please help - it's a new machine too.
You have a stuck check valve. Try running the pump with the steam knob open, then shutting it then, opening it 4 or 5 times and see if it will pop open. Make sure that you don't have the portafilter in at the time you are doing this.

I have a brand new Via that never worked right out of the box. Could barely get any espresso to come through the portafilter. Got a new portafilter and the espresso now flies out of the machine beautifully. Seems they are shipping units with faulty portafilter. Bad news is a new portafilter is like $65. See if you can get them to give you a new one.
