Likely to need flushing with water to remove accumulated grounds.... do you have the model... and a manual ?
Do you have hard water with calcium buildup in a kettle ?

I have run the Bosch cleaning tablet through it and run the Calcium tablet as well. The water is well water but have a very robust water treatment system.

Try flushing clean water through for several cycles and a toothbrush helps dislodge any compressed grounds

do you have the model... and a manual ?
