Looks fine to me. At least you didn't get any channelling like I did. :-)

I have the impression that the extracted liquid should flow/joint in the center region of
the basket.  In my video, it wasn't so at the begining until the middle of the extraction time.
and leter it shifted to the left side a bit.  

Try to get the feedback by desiphering the extraction flow.

Thanks for watching.
