I use a deep bowl, place pot in and fill with tepid water to rim of orchid pot, if it's deeper all the orchid compost will float out. When you look through the plastic pot what are the roots like. Healthy roots are almost pencil thick and white, dead roots appear brown. The roots I can see at the top of the pot look ok,
the flower stem is now dead so cut it off, you perhaps initially cut it too far back. When it flowers again, fingers crossed, enjoy them then as the last flowers go over trim it to the nearest node, little bobble bulge, below the flowers.
