I'm a complete newbie to coffee machines and coffee making, but I thought I'd try make myself a coffee on the hubbies machine while he's away. Well I think I packed too much coffee grind in and it didn't pour the shot. I discarded the shot and refilled it with less, and still no luck.

I've done a wee google and from that I've done as suggested a descale and flashback to try rule out any coffee grind blockages or build up of minerals. The hot water is still pouring and the wand is still steaming. Even without the basked in, no water is coming out the group head. The water comes straight out the bottom into the waste tray. Some clicking sounds can be heard when it's trying to pour a shot (? Maybe something to do with some valves?).

Anyone have any further suggestion or what else I could do or what is possibly going on?

Poor hubby is devastated that he won't be able to have his morning coffee.

Sounds like the three way solenoid is not working.
