I'd say it's probably "fried." Usually putting them through the wash ruins the logic board of the iPod, and it's almost definitely not worth replacing on the shuffle, i'd just invest in a new one.

Well you could try fixing it, iFixit.com does have a teardown instructions here: iPod shuffle 3rd Generation Teardown for you to follow if you do try.

The part that's probably bad would be the logic board, but i'm not sure where you could buy one of those.

You could try to see if apple would replace it, but usually when it's water damage they'll know and won't cover it. It certainly can't hurt to try, Apple replaces the oddest problems sometimes!

Do not be scared friend my ipod went through the wash i can only use straight listening instead of shuffle. But my uncle showed me if i put it in a bag of rice or jar then it will be perfectly fine just remember to leave it for about a day or two and DONT eat the rice!

Thanks.
