The brushes are turned by a motor. No belt. It's possible the gears on the brushes have a flat spot on them which would stop them from turning under a load.

If you can hear the motor running it probably needs a new drive belt and if the motor isn't running there is an electrical fault that must be checked by a suitably experienced person.

Some of the older power scrubbers/polishers I have seen didn't have a belt but used a simple but substantial gear drive system that gave no trouble in my experience.

The part number you provided returns no results by google and doesn't appear in the parts list of the model.

You will have to do more research or provide a long-hand description...

~It appears to be a known issue with that model. Find the leak and fix the crack with JB Weld.

Had it been mains powered I would have said give it at least a fortnight in the airing cupboard with the filters, dust container, etc. removed. The lower voltage of cordless appliances mean there is less potential for moisture-caused short circuits, motor damage, etc.

The trouble with something like a vacuum cleaner is water drawn into the motor and then it is immediately switched off, the interior of the vac becomes an enclosed space. Placing the unit somewhere warm could evaporate the water but because there is little or no throughput of air that trapped moist air simply condenses into air and water droplets when the warmth is removed and overall improvement is minimal.
You could fit the battery and switch on now and there probably would be no damage but if it was mine I would partially dismantle it and give it another couple of days somewhere warm...

With portable tools, domestic appliances, etc. the power cord is the first thing to suspect as internal breaks in the conductors are not unusual (usually occurring close to one end or the other).

The next thing to suspect is the switch...
