Machine chugging, no water entering the machine?

My AEG OKO Favorite 4040 is runnng/chugging even when it is turned off at the machine, have to turn off the power switch to stop it running. No water is entering the machine, it will do the drying cycle.
I have taken out the silver filter tray at the bottom and cleaned it along with the mesh "filter basket " I have added salts and put boiling water with soda crystals in.
Read on a blog about floats being stuck but think the float is in the salt thing. Any ideas please.

The switch may have activated and may now also be stuck in the activated position.
