    well right after it went through the wash did it turn on? because ur not supposed to turn it on after it goes in water. let it sit in a bag of rice for a week that should take the moisture out of it and if ur luck it will work. apple doesnt cover water damaged ipods so dont send it in or it will void ur warrant. but there is a way to make the sensor back white ( which is the way it is if it hasnt came in contact with water ).

    get a q tip and dip it in some bleach and stick it down the headphone port thingy and it will change it back to white it works ive tried it. u might have to put quite a bit of bleach in it too.

    It may work, but I think probably they open it up they'll be able to tell if there's water damage. Especially if it went through the washing machine like that.

    Reminds me a bit of my first mp3 player, an mpio 128MB. It went a full wash and dry cycle, TWICE, and to this day still works like new.
