Although the water tank is full, the machine is telling me to fill the tank. There is no way to get past this setting. I am stuck. What can I do to fix this? Thank you for any help you can give me. Erika Petersen

Not sure what you are saying, I assume the water is not pumping out at the end of the wash cycle. Is the water draining out at the end of each cycle? Is it spinning at all? Is the exhaust tubing clogged? Is the pump burned out or are you trying to pump it uphill too much. If it's stopping mid wash, try advancing it manually past where it's stuck and see if it continues. I have that problem, the tank fills with water and it gets stuck at the 6 minute changeover. It will run stuck at this point indefinitely if I let it. We just set a timer for the fill time, then manually advance it past this stopping point.
There is a little black float inside of the water tank. When the water level is increases it raises the float triggering a magnetic censor telling the computer that the water level is adequate. The float may be stuck. when you fill the tank, make sure the float raises with the water level. if this is not the problem then it is possible that your censor is bad.
Check the little black rectangular box which is in a plastic channel at the back. To work properly, the rectangular box, with the narrower end facing downwards, needs to be floating at the top of that channel. Apparently it's a magnet which signals the circuitry that the water tank is full. Make sure it's floating to the cap of the channel. If not, you can get a replacement one from Gaggia.
I had this problem with my Ena 3. The difference was that water was actually passing through the nozzle, but when I turned the dial back to the coffee symbol it would just tell me to open the tap again.
The solution was simple thanks to bergend's post, although I'd never have thought of it independently. I emptied the water tank and filled it back up with luke warm water instead of the cold water I had been using. After the first "system filling" round, the machine continued with the setup program fine.
So, to others with this problem: don't use too cold water in the tank for the first setup, even though the manual tells you to. Luke warm works great.
hello in the water tank they is a float it was probably out of water for a while and the float is stuck take the container in our hand and tap it gently by doing that the float gonna get loose move the container you gonna ear the float move put it back fill with water enjoy cheers
