Unfortunately, it's done. Once something like that happens, it is very unlikely that it will work properly after that. Especially given what it is showing. Water and electronics don't work too well together.

In the future, if a phone gets wet immediately take the battery out. Put it in a tupper-ware bowel of uncooked white rice for about 5-7 days, then pop the battery back in. The uncooked rice will draw the moisture from the phone. However, after fulling being washed, it is most likely done.

Sorry,
Simon.

Did you try turning if off and on?
If so, remove the sim card, wipe with a coarse dry cloth of some type, jeans are OK.
Then try it.
