Question about Keurig B100 Coffee Maker
My B100 was only dispensing around 4oz of liquid and it was time to do the descaling. Following the manufacturer instructions I did the descaling process and did see lime deposits in the waste and rinse water but was still not getting any larger amount of liquid. Trying to improve the water flow I tried to descale a 2nd time. The machine now only dispenses a tablespoon of water and the drawer does not unlock for about five minutes after cycling.
Looking at the check-valve I found a little water on the wrong side of the valve and thought a lime deposit had gotten stuck so I soaked the valve in vinegar. I don't know how much air the pump is suppose to put out but it does put out a small amount, not enough to get through the check valve. I checked this by running a tube from the pump into a glass of water and saw bubbles. I connected the valve, put the valve in the water glass and did not see anything.
Is the check-valve suppose to open with air pressure from the pump or a suction from the other side?
Also, without the check-valve and pump connected the drawer does open after cycling.
Where can somebody get parts and/or service on these machines? I have put a second call into Keurig but have not yet received a response.
Descaling with vinegar forget that you said after you decaled it it worst vinegar remove calcium in little chunks ckunks bloc everything use a special descaler it melt calcium just to prove you that im right you said you saw lime deposit if you use the descaler when the water come out no residue just water color change 1 part solution 1 part water put it in container start machine for few second stop leave it for 15 minute repeat untill empty that a hell of cleanup after dont forget to rinse that solution is very corosif cheers

Hello - There are several things that could cause the fabric softener to not dispense into the washer. Are you sure the liquid in the dispenser after the wash is fabric softener? If it is fabric softener, the solenoid that lets the water into the dispenser is not working. This solenoid is located on the back of the dispenser. It only gets voltage during the dispense time and fills the fabric softener dispenser with water. The fabric softener dispenser fills while the washer is filling for the rinse cycle.
When the washer begins to fill for the rinse cycle, the fabric softener solenoid is energized and water flows into the fabric softener dispenser cup. When the cup is full the water siphons out and softener and water flow into the tub.
If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is pure softener you may need a technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The voltage will have to be tested to the softener solenoid and a volt meter is required.
If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is water you probably need to clean the dispenser cup. **** will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into the washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the softener and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub. The instructions for cleaning the dispenser should be located on page 43 of the use and care guide that came with the washer.
If you don't have the use and care guide these instructions will help. Open the dispenser until it stops. In the left rear corner of the dispenser, there is a release that is labeled push. Press down on the push area and you can slide the dispenser drawer out.
Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Clean the bottom of the insert and the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Reinstall the insert and put the drawer back inside the washer.
To test the siphon action slowly pour water into the fabric softener compartment. When the water level goes above the maximum line stop pouring. The water should all drain out.
Hope this information proves to be helpful however if it is ineffective please contact a professional to move forward accurately.
