The motor on most dryers sits approx 1 inch off of floor on bottom base plate.if you had more water than that,you have a open motor winding.aprox price for repair if u call a tech is $300.washers stand a better chance of surviving a flood,dryers very rarely do.

Dryer won't run.


First, there is an excellent chance you have some kind of flood damage insurance.  It may pay for part of the repair.  You did not tell us what is not working but I'll guess it is the motor.  On many models, there is a switch on the motor which will not allow the elements to heat unless the motor is powered and running.
