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

I have swimming pool but it dosent have drainage so its short of big water tank, i want to keep it filled with water ,,what shouod i do to keep that watre clean and smell free


LOL,, well if your serious about that then a carbon fish tank filter unit, and an aquarium air pump and aerator stone should do nicely, if you actually want to turn your Kenmore swimming pool into a washing machine again then you will half to look underneath the unit and find the water pump, follow the drain hoses, this pump may be belt driven or have a separate motor to run it, insure the belt is still on and tight or put in drain mode and see if the electric pump is functioning, if all is OK check to see if there is a filter that is plugged, when you made it this far let me know and i will help further good luck
