Question about Krups Kitchen Appliances - Others
Allen head or Phillips won't work. If torx do you know the size?
before you take the pump out, if drain hose goes into a spigot on the sink trap, take drain hose off and check hose and spigot are not blocked. this is very common.
can't remember anything special about the screws - used to be philips head but may have changed to multi-spline.the top ones are indeed obscured by the door panel but you can normally get to them with a stubby screwdriver or take the outer door panel off - just a few screws

It would be an allen wrench. Any typical multi sized wrench should have the proper sized allen wrench.
The holes can often become filled with grime so be sure to seat the wrench properly to prevent stripping.

The torx screws are only the first part of a delicate procedure. Once the screws are removed it still requires special tools etc to open the unit without damaging it. Once it is open there are very small and extremely fragile connectors that are easily destroyed if you try to disconnect them the wrong way. If there is a problem with your unit I highly recommend not trying to fix it yourself, it is well worth the $ to have it done by an expert. There are several post-warranty repair companies out there but the only one I recommend is www.sharcnet-usa.com.
