The "percollator" column has become dislodged from the heating element. You may be able to see the tube in the water tank and move it back over the heating element. If you can't understand this info, then it is not for you to do it yourself.

It is probably just your water inlet solenoid being activated. Not to be concerned.

If it's metallic sound you are loosing teeth on a gear or two.  This is caused by lack of lubricant or simply fatigue of the material of the gears.  Don't use it, you can get metal flakes in your food.

Take it in to a repair shop and have it fixed.  The money spent is well worth it because if done correctly will last another 12 years.

HI. this sounds like a busted impeller in the pump housing. there are two impellers. one for the wash and one for the drain. the drive shaft will strip the impeller center nut, causing this noise. I would inspect the pump housing for lose impeller action. replace the faulty impeller if found to be damaged.

SOURCE: My KitchenAid mixer will not turn it makes a loud noise.

thebsjunk - I don't know if you've canned the old mixer. If you've bought a new KA, congratulations to Kitchenaid. If you haven't, there's still a possiblilty that you might be able to fix it yourself. (For the price of KA mixers you'd think they's last a 'lifetime', but alas, KA quality is sorely lacking from their current products...but I editorialize.)
It's quite possilbe that you've had a gear tooth break in the transmission, which would lock up and prevent the planetary gear (agitator) from rotating in mixing bowl. This is what happend to my wife's 6 Quart Pro KA mixer. Since it was out of warranty, I decided to troubleshoot myself. First I downloaded the Parts List manual from the KA website so I knew what to expect. Then I easily disassemble the mixer to find that a bevel gear tooth had broken. After ordering the correct parts, and reassembling, it works better than when we first upacked it. The loud whining is absent...
If the motors gone bad, you can still replace that, too. Fixing your mixer yourself is much easier than shipping it off to a repair center, and you have the gratification of doing it yourself.
I hope this helps! Howard, Burke, VA

HI I have a Kitchenaid artisan espresso machine it makes a very load noise when I press the buttons for coffee and froth any suggestions ? thank you

You don't say if there is any water flowing along with the loud noise. If there is none then my suggestion would be that it's a dry water pump so you will need to force some water up the clear pickup tube into the pump while it's making that loud noise. The pump valves will be dry.

Machine says needs priming. Water light stays on but no water comes out when opening valve. No water for coffee either. Water pump broken?

can you hear a quite louder noise when trying to make water flow?
If no or very faint noise can be heard, pump is probably faulty or needs to be disassembled and cleaned (see tutos on the Net)
If you can hear a loud noise, the pump is working but unable to suck water, keep on trying, if still unsuccessfull you will have to open the machine and fill yourself the watel inlet tube to "help" the pump priming.

Hope that thelps

If it is a 5KES100 model then yes that's how you do it, you get your hot water from the steam boiler so the steam needs to be released before the water can come through. Turn the tap wide open and press and hold the steamer pump button. The rush of steam on full open is short lived.

Machine makes a knocking sound

The pump probably has air in it, open the steam valve and pump it through.

Bought a used Tassimo, is it supposed to make loud noise when brewing?

The water tank is probably not seated correctly.It can look as though it is, but you have to make sure the forward edge of it has been tilted so that the angled indentation in the plastic exactly mates with the machine.If it doesn't, water is not drawn from the tank, the pump makes a noise, and steam comes from the pod area.

Hi all, got a Artisan 5KPES100 and I'm not getting any water thru' the espresso boiler. Machine is making an occasional noise & sometimes just releasing a bit of steam thru' the espresso boiler, but no water. Have replaced the water pump, but still no water being drawn from the water tank. Hose is NOT kinked & there IS sufficient water in tank. Could it be the solenoid? Can I swap over the solenoids(coils) to check as frothing boiler is still producing water & steam? Any ideas would be magic.

Green slime in coffee machine

Try running a couple cycles through of full strength vinegar. If that doesn't do it run a weak bleach solution (6 to 1 / water to bleach) through it. Repeat vinegar every week then once a month if it clears.
