I left it to dry since the incident then cleaned it thoroughly with a bleach solution to sanitize it.

I just used it to mix s very thick CC cookie batter and it worked normally.

The plumber told me water damage is more of an issue with electronics and that it usually isn't an issue with electric motors.

Yes, shorting between components is the worry. As long as you dry out the motor well and no water remains caught within the motor, it shouldn't become a problem.

With electronics, very often, there is a slight bit of power on at all times. It may be only a simple EPROM (Erasable/Programmable/Read Only Memory.

Those chips can hold a charge for more than a decade with no power source other then thier own.

When wet, they cause a short between the components in the chip and fry the works.

That's why electronics can be fried even when they aren't plugged in.

Here is what the damage looked like.

All that toilet needs is a little duct tape!

I don't know about calling the plumber--I've replaced a toilet (successfully) and I'm a klutz when it comes to DYI projects. It is fairly easy to replace a toilet (if I can do it).
