I have a Miele g646 sc plus. The drain / inlet light is on.

Customer Question
I have cleaned the filters...
I have a Miele g646 sc plus. The drain / inlet light is on. I have cleaned the filters and arms. I put it on its back and saw a container of disgusting water. I looked at the sump and pulled out a piece of plastic that I thought was stopping the wheel
turnin. The light went off for a while and I thought I'd fixed it. So I tried to run a cycle but it's not working.
