It's hard to know which one needs replacing, without testing the outlet first. Unplug the AC unit and outlet in a lamp or some other electrical appliance to see if the outlet works as it should. If does function correctly, then the problem is in the AC unit. But, buying a new power cord will probably not solve the problem. More than likely, one of the circuits or sensors in the control panel got fried, when the water got into the outlet and shorted it out. That's why the reset button n the cord won't reset. Depending on the age of the uni, you may want to consider having it repaired, rather than replacing it. But, if it's 5 years old or older, I'd opt for replacement.
Now, lets address what caused the problem. Either the drain hole in the drip pan was clogged and or the rear of the AC unit did have enough downward tilt. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" rear downward tilt. This allows the water collected in the drip pan to flow to the rear of the unit and drain away thru the drain hole. Whether you repair or replace the unit, keep this in mind.

First of all, an extension cord and GFI receptacle to run an AC unit will almost always blow either GFI or circuit breaker or both due to large current draw from AC unit. If an extension cord needs to be used, keep it as short as possible, and use the heavier gauge that is approved for AC use. What happens when you use an extension cord, is the voltage drop that will happen by the time the AC gets power. With any voltage drop, the amperage draw increases, so a 15 amp circuit breaker will most likely trip. Nowadays, all AC units are wired with a minimum 12 gauge wire rated for 20 amps. You say nothing is happening now, is that to say that the fan only mode doesn't work on the AC unit either?
You are going to have to let it dry very well. That's about all you can do at this point, as something electrical has gotten wet, and its tripping the unit to keep from burning out a part. Its just a matter of wait. wait, and so on. It will start again. Shastalaker7
if its a sharp ac ... it will need to be reset..
1) hold down the on/off button keep it held down and plug in the ac ..you should hear a beep...
2) hold down the mode button keep it held down and plug in the ac ..you should hear a beep...
one of two ways will reset the e1 error hope it helps..
Go up on the roof of the unit and remove the AC Shroud. With the unit running, see if you can pinpoint where the sound is coming from. The only thing on the entire AC that would make that much of a vibration would be the fan motor. Not sure what would cause the fan motor to do this. The compressor may do that but only if the windings are bad and then it would not be cooling.
