I have had this issue. First, check to make sure water tank is filled and correctly in place? Try descaling it; a kit came with coffee maker. (It just removes hard water build up, it may be blocking your water flow.) If that is not the issue, pull the tray where the used pods are dropped -Is it wet? Like the coffee is pouring into this tray rather than in your cup? If so, I have removed round silver plastic piece from around coffee spout,(gentle -do not crack it) then removed and washed the black spout, I even used a toothpick once, to remove the stubborn coffee ground, Once it was cleaned - it worked perfect. If you run water from the faucet into spout it should flow smoothly. I warn you though, not sure what this does to any warranty, but don't mess with my morning coffee! If the POD tray is not wet, I would tell you not that most likely your machine is not clogged by grounds, so you may not want to take snout apart. I hope this helps.

    Thank you! I thought my machine had died, but the second tip from baglady4ever (which in my opinion should be tried first...) Worked like a charm! So easy to fix what made me live without it for 2 weeks...

SOURCE: my keurig will not dispense right amt of water

Try brewing a cup without a K-cup in it on the largest cup button (will brew just hot water). This will help clean it out in the event it is clogged. If that doesn't work, completely remove the K-cup holder where the needles are (careful not to get **** ) by pushing up from the bottom and rinse using hot water, preferably with a sink sprayer if you have one. Sometimes the needle can get clogged, especially if you ever use the hot cocoa K-cups, so the manufacturer recommends brewing a "blank" cup of just hot water after each hot cocoa K-cup brewed. Hope that helps...Best of luck!

Won't dispense all the coffee from the disc. Have to push button at least two times. Descaled Help


The discs tell the machine how much water to dispense through the disc. Some discs dispense a small amount for an Espresso, others give a larger drink. Normal cups will not fill, you need smaller coffee cups for most Tassimo drinks.
Check the packet to see how much it dispenses and check with a measurement jug to see if it is working properly, you may be surprised to find it is working fine.

Frigidaire washing machine fabric softner will not dispense out


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.

Just got a new Keurig mini. Plugged it in, put in the water, closed the lid, put a cup on the plate, pushed the power button, pushed the "coffee cup" button and nothing is happening.


My wife's mini single cup B31 quit dispensing hot water into the K-cup. It would go through every stage and the pump came on but no water, no coffee. Try this: unplug the unit, take the drip tray off and lay the Keurig on its back, with the top opened so you can see the dispensing probe and the rubber ring that seals to the top of the K-cup. The dispensing probe is sharp, with two small channels, one on each side. (Be sure you can spill a little water when you try this) With a kid's water blaster, or a rubber bulb, squirt water up the channels on each side of the probe. Do this a few times, then try to run it normally.
That worked for me, and loosened the few coffee grounds that were plugging the outlet.

Water will not come out of dispenser


Remove kick plate at bottom of fridge in front. Find line that brings water to door. There should be a coupling that connects the line together there. Remove the line and get a cup. While holding line into cup with door shut push water dispenser with other hand. Did you get water into cup.

My palazzo only works when i press the button for expresso?it doesnt work when i push the button for the bigger cup ?


HI
If it works for espresso, but it doesn't work for the large cup, try holding the large cup button down and keep it down. Let it go through the grind, the clicking, and if it starts to dispense coffee , still don't release it until you have the desired amount in your cup. Then release it.
If one of the coffee buttons is held down for 3 seconds or more and then released, the water program goes back to zero. No water. You have to reprogram the button like we did above.

My Keurig dispenses about 3oz of water on next to largest setting


I JUST fixed (I Hope!) my 11 month old B60 by taking a paper clip and a straightened safety pin to the top of the coffee maker (where the top pin punctures the top of the cup) and the BOTTOM pin which punctures the bottom of the cup. (remove the bottom dark brown holder by pushing up on it).

After one or two attempts, I ran water through it without the coffee cup, then used a decaf cup and brewed it just fine....

Ice maker water dispenser is stuck in the on position


The problem is fixed. I think the drinking cup jarred the push bar activator, causing it to be stuck in the on position. After pushing this activator, it cleared the problem. Thanks for your follow up.
