Looks like there is a center screw that holds the dispersion screen, where the disp. screen is where the water drips out of the grouphead. Can I take that off and inspect? Also, I have crud buildup in the groove that the portafilter locks into. I/ve brushed it and paper toweled it several time during ownership, but it certainly is not real clean. Is there a disassembly for that? And is that even supposed to get dirty? Can't tell if it is in the pressure/coffee zone or on the other side. Seems to me it would be NOT on the coffee side, thus not get dirty. I'm a first month user and going through a learning curve. I just discovered the back pressure pipe that dumps into the drip tray. I did not even know it existed until I found a diagram today....thanks to this site!
