Water in the holding well, no water is coming through to the coffee capsules or into cup. The machine power light is on but nothing is happening.


I have heard of this problem with another brand of machine and what it turned out to be is a back flow valve made of plastic getting clogged up. These valves are for keeping the coffee water from backing up from the coffee capsules back into the holding well water. These valves are rather inexpensive but getting to them is a pain. My friend contacted the company that made his and they were aware of the problem and sent him a brand new machine and told him to destroy the old one. This is how we became aware of this problem was by taking it apart. We found the valve, cleaned it up with vinegar to get rid of water deposits, and reinstalled it. It has been working great ever since.

Water pooling in washer in between loads


The problem is caused by a leaking water inlet valve and the only way to solve it is by replacing the water inlet valve assembly. It is an easy "do-it-yourself" fix that only requires a minimum effort.

Water Inlet Valve Replacement Procedure
  1. Remove the three screws at the back of the machine holding the top cover.
  2. Slide the top cover to the back and lift it from the washer.
  3. Put a bucket or pan under the inlet valves.
  4. Remove the fill hoses from the machine and drain the water into the bucket or pan to avoid flooding your floor.
  5. Remove the screws holding the water inlet valve assembly to the back of the machine.
  6. Use a pair of pliers to press the spring clamp holding the inlet hose to the inlet valve assembly and move the spring clamp away.
  7. Install the new water inlet valve assembly and all other parts disassembled in reverse order of the procedure above.
  8. Make sure to clean the fill hose filters, if there's any, before attaching it to the water inlet valve assembly.

It sounds like the tank isn't full. Unplug the machine and make sure there is a pot underneath to catch water. Pour clean water into the tank until it starts flowing out. Plug the machine in and let it heat up. Then try brewing coffee.

The way your machine works is that there is a holding tank for the water and it isn't actually brewing with the water you just poured in, it is using the holding tank water. If the holding tank gets low, and you pour water in all it does is fill the tank but nothing will come out.

Hope this helps.

Simpsom Washing Machine


First see that the exit hose behind the machine is at the correct height, before coming down into the wall standpipe or your sink. Your machine pump pumps water over this height, about 2.75 feet above ground level. Possible there is a water level height marked behind your machine.

If water flows out when machine is off, possible your inlet valve at top of machine is defective...............can be replaced easily.

Machine not holding water


Your exit pipe behind the machine could be level into the drain, that is at floor level. The machine has a water level where the pipe must bend over (about 3 feet from ground level); it then passes into the drain in your wall, also raised. Your water exit pump pumps the waste water of the machine OVER this height. Check this out.
