I know it is ridiculously simple, but can someone tell me how to assemble things? Where and how do I put the little rubber disc? Does it go inside the basket with the little tip up and detergent on top? Pictures would be fantastic. Thanks in advance!!

I prefer a stainless blind basket to the rubber disc, but either way:
Remove the screens, clean the dispersion disc and install the clean set of screens
Put about 1/3 spoon cafiza (or other espresso machine detergnet) into the basket
Install the portafilter and turn on the pump
When the overpressure warning flashes turn off the pump and you will get a gush out the overpressure valve
I let the detergent "soak" in the system for a few minutes
I then release the portafilter, relock and repeat the procedure 3 - 5 times
After doing this with a single load of detergent I remove the portafilter, rinse it and then run 3 - 5 backflusshes of clean water
finally let the machine pump water into the drip tray to flush the screens
