    If I have too fine a grind I will get leakage that doesn't come down the tube leading form the upper chamber into the drip tray. Some early runs of this machine had drip trays that didn't extend far enough into the recess to catch water.

    The amount of water "should be" negligible and if you have enough water coming out from under the base you have a leak in the pump system but tring to find someone who can actually work on these is tough if not impossible because Whirlpool bought Kitchen-Aid and quit making/supporting this machine.

I took out the water tank. Found a return discharge hole in the middle of the over hanging brewer body. It was in the middle of the deep indention.I placed a self adhesive folded plastic door weather stripping between the discharge hole and the brewer body. I used about 1 and 1/2 inches of the stripping. I made sure the fold was angled back away from the brewer. That seemed to force the water back into the water tank and my counter has stayed dry. I still get quite a bit of water under the catch tray, but if i clean it one every 20 pulls it has never over flowed.

Coffee doesnt flow but water gathers in the drip pan instead.

Hi Your problem is probably the boiler leaking. Its located just above the drip tray in the center of the machine. When it starts leaking it goes into the drip tray or on the counter top. If you can remove the top, you can see if the boiler is leaking. There will be a white line between the 2 halves of the boiler.

Coffee is not dispensing during brewing, water dispenses in the tray

There is a lot of things that can cause that. The first place I would look is the injector behind the brew unit. Remove the brew unit. The injector is the finger with the 2 orange O-rings on it. If it is loose it will not go through the brew unit, just into the tray.
If the boiler is leaking it will go into the tray and under the machine. Any other leak would be coffee going into the tray.

Water is leaking into the drip tray.

Clean the chamber below the white plastic valve, there is also a small discharge that leads from there into the drain tray clean that hole also.
Second the thermostat that controls the steam may be damaged or the cpu board, the contact the controls the steam may be damaged, i have seen both of those happen on some units.

Need manual for pro 12 kitchenaid coffee maker.

Manuals and guides may be located online at KITCHENAID.COM.

In the upper-right hand corner of the site, click on CUSTOMER CARE and then click on LOCATE MANUALS AND GUIDES.

It will then ask you for your model number.

For an espresso maker, the model number is located on a silver sticker behind the water reservoir. For a coffee maker, the model number is located on a silver sticker underneath the machine.

On the website, type in your model number exactly as it appears on this sticker and click GO.

This will then bring up the literature listing for your particular unit. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the files.

Also, Kitchenaid Customer Service will send you a physical copy of an instruction manual at no charge if you choose to call them. Their toll-free telephone number is:
