Filter not working after being unplugged

orangesicle

I unplugged my filter while doing a water change, and when I turned it on again it wouldn’t start. I don’t have a large bucket yet so I’m using a small bucket to refill the tank over the course of a few days.

The impeller is making a noise but the water won’t flow. When I lower it into the water more it creates this white dust thing that it releases into the water. I tried priming it already.

It’s a Tetra Whisper and I’ve only had it for 2 weeks. Help?

Oh, never mind. I figured it out. Do you suppose the white stuff is harmful to the fish? They’re acting fine and it’s been about an hour since the white stuff.

does the water cover the intake?

white dust, maybe something is stuck in the motor. did you take it apart and check for obstructions?
