Question about Plumbing
If there is no permanent damage, it needs to be dried out to eliminate the ground likely caused by the flood. Your best bet would be a fan or small forced air heater left blowing on it for a few hours. If you can, read resistance from the line connections to ground and once that reading is infinite, you can hook the motor back up and run it. You may find mechanical damage from the flood also, such as bearing noise. If it is present, you'll want to fix that sooner than later as the longer you wait, the more damage and chances of possible total failure go up. increases
