“Makes awesome espresso but not for hard water ”

Written on: 12/07/2013 by babydaddy (1 review written)

This machine will clog easily with hard water. The pump will have to be replaced quickly. I have the Villaware V41006. I purchased it used and the family lived in the city and had soft water. I am on a well with hard water. This machine lived for about 2 months and then started pumping really slow. I cleaned it with 50/50 mix of water and vinegar as recommended. It worked again for about a week and then no output. After several attempts to clean it again, it finally stopped even making a noise from the pump. I removed the shower head to see if that was the problem and it was only 10% clogged so the pump is going to have to be replaced. That is my next project.
