Hi Mark, welcome to

Allen of the electrical supply circuits, controls, motors, et al will need to be thoroughly inspected for water intrusion and if found to have been wet will need to be replaced. Hopefully the intrusion is minimal. If only a portion of the electrical circuit was wet, it may be possible to cut the damaged portion out and properly splice in new wiring. If you have any further questions, let me know.

It is possible that, with exception of the control panel, the system can dry and "work" again. This would not make it safe.
