Its really depends, What was it washed in dropped in toylet?
washer? also detergent. mineral/water content.
If it still works you might have gotten lucky, if it was washed dried and spun, your more than likely going to have issues. If its working for now, i would say make sure if gets plenty of dry out time, but may have started some parts inside build up corosion.
you cant fix it by your own you need a help of a personal assistance.
i prefer to suggest you that bring your unit to a service center and let them open it for you and dry it but please until it is not fix dont try to open it to prevent any additional damage that may occur.
A few thoughts:
1) take the battery out, look at the contacts and give them a good cleaning. They may have become oxidzied and are not conducting. Also do the same for the contacts on the unit.
2) If 1 does not work, then you have to get the unit apart and dry off the internals. Its likely you can still bring it back to life, but the water is probably shorting out the internals.
you can only try ... the chances are bare minimum .... keep it to dry under a bulb or sumthing .... dont keep too near or it will melt ..... after around 12-14 hours ..... restore the same using itunes ..... that is the most that can be done
Might be a lost cause, but you could try putting it in a bag of dried rice. Maybe for a day or two. You should have done this right after it came out of the washer so I'm not sure it will do anything. It's worth a try though.
Don't turn it on right away. Water alone does not break electronics. If the player was off when it got washed and it hasn't been turned on since it is probably still OK. If you turn it on when the unit is dry (inside), it will be OK.
But. If you tried it right away, and there was water in it when you turned it on it's game over. The unit will probably short out and never work again.
The question is how do you know when it is dry inside?
