If the phone was not given immediate first aid, it is likely that moisture has leaked into the phone, and has gradually setup corrosion on a printed circuit board, the corrision would accelerated by the chemicals in the laundry detergent.
We successfully rescued a phone, by quickly taking the batteries out, and then swishing the phone around in clean tap, even better if you have distilled water handy. This dilutes or removes corrosive chemicals. Take it out and shake it vigourously, or use vacuum cleaner to **** out as much water as you can. If you blow vac or have a air compressor handy, put the air into the battery compartment. To get the final moisture out put the phone in a plastic zip top bag with a quantity of silica gel crystals, or several kleenex tissues, leave in a warm place for 24hrs.(Not direct sunlight). Pray.

The phone should careful be opened and let dry for several days. The battery should also be replaced to avoid accidents. after several days let's say 1 week that it was left to dry try putting on a new battery and turn on. it should work.
