    Water will not flow through coffee pod. Pump works fine without a coffee pod. Add a pod and all the water backfills back through the relief opening to the reservoir. Sometimes if I double puncture the pod 180 degrees, send it through twice rotating pod, it will work.

My keruig b50 is only pouring 1/2 the cup of water. the rest of the water is leaking internally into the works of the machine and flowing out of the bottom. I took the base off and ran the machine and the water is leaking from high inside somewhere. Must be a hose disconnected or broken. Any ideas?

I've seen a few coffeemakers that have a gravity valve on the inlet side of the brew chamber. If this valve has become stuck open, then the hot water may be perking back into the reservoir instead of out to the coffee.

Frigidare top loading washing machine, 1995 model # GLMS174SAS4

I believe the softener is dispensed through centrifugal force when the machine is in the high speed spin after draining and before filling for the rinse cycle. I had the same issue on another machine. Use very hot water and a washcloth to clean out the softener cup. When adding softener at the beginning of the load, only add the recommended amount and then fill the remainder of the cup with water.

My keurig model VBMC KG5 single cup coffee maker will not run a whole cup during cycle

The Keurig machine operates by pumping air into the glass boiler to drive the hot water through your coffee cartridge. When you have put a new cartridge into the dispenser, you select a size of cup. When you press the go button, you should hear the machine pump water into the boiler to the requested cup size (test by selecting large size to hear the pumping work). Next the machine operates an air pump to force the specific amount of hot water through the cartridge and make the cup of coffee. The problem encountered with these machine is that a small amount of water can drip internally onto the air pump and it will either not operate or work intermittantly. There is a great 'how to fix' video on utube concerning the Keurig-taking apart and fixing.
Honestly, I don't know whether this is your problem, but I do know this happened to a machine I had. You should hear the tiny air pump working when the cup of coffee should be brewing. You can laboriously take apart and replace, and given the price of these units it may be practicle to do the repair. Watch video on utube--its like three or four parts and very instructive. Sorry I don't have the link.

My Keurig coffee maker suddenly can't push the water through the K-cup to brew. It works without the K-cup, but seems to lack the power to force the hot water through with a K-cup in place.

You need to descale your unit. First you will need a bottle of white vinegar (the larger bottle). Then you need to follow these instructions:{6016A1EA-9A99-44BA-8B3B-2B244B5DFA96}

Not brewing a full cup

If you keurig makes small cups or insists that you descale even after you have, your problem is that grounds are being forced up into the waterhole that pushes into the K-cup. The solution to both these problems is to keep a safety pin next to your maker and puncture each K-cup just before you put it into the coffee maker. This keeps the pressure of gasses that builds up in K-cups from fresh coffee from forcing grounds into the water hole. It may take a few days of this plus you may want to use the pin to clean out the upper water hole and run a few clean water brews but this will fix the above mentioned problems for good.

Water remains in the liquid detergent cup

This is by design. Water flows in and forces the detergent out. There will almost always be a little water left in the cup after a wash routine.

Keurig coffee maker won't draw water from the resevoir

I just got mine to work by forcing water into the pump to force it to prime. I took a syringe for a meat injector and built a gasket so it would seal over the water intake. Then I forced several syringes of water into the pump till it finally picked up and caught its prime.
