OK, first of all, I do not recommend my solution if you are forgetful or do not check your water level manually daily.
However, I found a super easy solution.
The way the unit works is to use a float in the water chamber with a magnet on the bottom. When their is enough water in the tank, the float rises and the magnet on the bottom floats to the top of the magnet chamber. When it floats up, it aligns with a sensor in the machine that allows the machine to operate. When the the water level lowers, so does the magnet and drops below the internal sensor disabling the machine with a "Fill Water Tank" error message.
To eliminate this error and allow the machine to operate, I simply popped off the lid to the magnet chamber with a butter knife and turned the water chamber up side down to let the magnet float fall out. Remember to empty the water first.
Here comes the highly technical part. Turn the magnet float upside down and slide it back into the float chamber. Since the actual magnet is on the bottom of the float it now is at the top allowing the internal sensor to turn off. No more error message!
The reason I do recommend this is because this completely defeats the purpose of the sensor and will most likely damage your machine if you run it without water. Keep you tank filled however and you will eliminate the frustration of a "float gone bad" keeping you from your morning caffeine.

If you are talking about the descale light you must let the machine quit on its own. The lights will change. Then do the rinse by replacing the water in the tank and closing and then reopening the steam knob and again letting the machine quit on its own. Again the lights will change. Then repeat the last cycle until all the red lights go away and you only have a green blinking light. Stopping it when it is out of water will only let it continue on with the descale cycle. The pump must quit on its own.

Grounds and water under the machine or drip tray indicate that the drain behind the brew unit is plugged.
Remove the brew unit. You will see the injector in the back of the machine. Below the injector is a pocket that the excess pressure is relieved into when the machine is done making a coffee. This pocket will plug up with ground and oils. The drain is just above the center of the drip tray. Insert something into the drain and see if you can unplug it. Once it has drained run some hot soapy water through the pocket.

I have the exact same problem with mine.
The machine will work fine with pre ground coffee, but is a no go with beans.
The machine grinds the beans, puts them in to be brewed, moves the brewing unit into the brew position, then I get a short hiss - then it resets chucking the slightly damp dregs out. Interestingly if i run the steam for a good while first, then order a coffee it does seem to try a bit harder - I get a very small trickle of coffee sometimes. It seems like it's not quite closing around the o ring, or as if it's too much pressure and it is blocked, but I know it isn't blocked because it works fine with pre ground!
Either when doing bean to cup I do not get the 'pre brewing - brewing' cycle picture up on the lcd, it's almost like it's missing this part of the operation or it's corrupt?
I have already taken the grinder apart and serviced it - descaled it etc. I use very dry beans, but no water comes out even if I use no beans - again only works on pre ground.
Any help would be appreciated!
