Can you try to shut the power off to the unit for a full minute and power it back up? If that does not wor and it does not run there is a very good chance the main control board behind the unit was damaged and will need to be replaced. You will have to pull the unit out though to get to that part. Here is a link to the board and a video of how to change it if the powering off does not work.
