Hello,

You need to see if the you have a blockage by the plastic valve behind the brew unit. Often it gets clogged with coffe grounds there and then the water can not drain into the tray. Now if that all seems fine you could have a crack in the boiler. Those are the two most common causes for leaks. They make a new stainless steel valve to replace that plastic one as they had a lot of leak issues with that valve.

I also hear a hissing noise when the unit is warming up, do you think that is related?


And if I am seeing water coming from under the front of the machine, where do you think it is leaking from? Do you think the entire bottom of the cabinet, under the machine, is wet??

The hissing noise is likely from a cracked boiler. That is an expensive and technical job to do. What happens is the unit will heat the water and start to hiss since the boiler has a crack or leak in it, then water all over. I'm not sure you will want to repair this due to the cost.
