Only thing can be damaged if the phone works is connector of home button or the pins of it. I recommend you to get a dry clean solution and clean the pins and connector of the home button. If it won't fix it, stop by at any pc repair store that has equipment for the water damaging.

You just need to do couple hard reset to get the Touch ID back !!!

its a common issue for techs. I don't believe you have any hardware issues.

I have new dock and new home button, I replaced this part you posted and still home button not working. This is something with motherboard?

I don't think it's motherboard if the phone is functioning without home button. It's a connection issue between home button and the motherboard. I would question the dock and the home button.

I have tested 3x home buttons and back housing with original dock from another iphone. Still nothing. I have only touch id with original button (but without button feature). Any ideas?

I have tried third home button from ebay and still nothing. It can be something with bad static or screws? Can anybody help?

The touch ID home button connects to the board via CHARGE PORT assembly. I would attempt replacement of the charge port assembly, BUT spending a little bit more for a charge port assembly can go a long way. You will have a new port, therefore if it is of higher quality it will feel more normal when plugging in the lightning cable.
