Hello from JA
My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 32 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs under my belt.

May I have the model number of the unit to better assist you ?

It will be on the bottom of the unit.

and how long ago did you get it wet ?

And when you set it for a low speed does it still run ,but just a a high speed or is it dead on a low setting?

I just got it wet earlier today

It runs fast on all speeds
Expert:  woody463 replied 3 years ago.

It could just be an issue of it needing to dry out!

Are you able to set it in the sun or blow air from a fan on it ?

I just hate to have you take it apart if it just need to dry out .
