There are some screws not removed yet, on the top under the filter there may be one, sometimes there is a screw under the control panel. Maybe these pix's will help. Most likely you will have to replace the cord reel asm (#05240303). You can take the reel apart and re-attach the cord, but if the spring unwound, then it maybe better to replace it.

A lot of Miele's have similar construction, you might find the instructions here useful: http://www.sannerud.com/house/miele.html

SOURCE: VACUUM - 1. How to open
Hi,most cord reels have a metal flat spring, wound very tight, like in an
old clock (if you remember cartoons very well, you can imagine the
spring). It's this coil that retracts the cord. The locking in/out
mechanism is similar to a venetian-type blind pull; you can release
the blinds, and lock them in any position you choose by pulling
slightly at an angle.
The cord reel itself is mechanical; however the cord usually is soldered or otherwise wire-connected to a metallic contact, which in turn is connected to the motor. So if a cord is yanked hard enough to dislodge the connected contact, the vacuum will not run. But, it does take a big yank!
Cord reels, as a rule, are only good for so many ins-and-outs. Eventually they all fail. But, how convenient they are!
Hope this helps.
