Question: iPod Nano went through washing Machine

I have an iPod Nano 7th Gen. from 2015 that recently went through the washing machine (forgot about it in my pocket). It then sat on a drying rack overnight. I tried turning it on this morning but nothing happened. I've read that others experienced the same thing and theirs turned on again after a while. What should I do?

Going through a washing machine cycle isn't the iPod getting "just a little bit wet" (which is sometimes rescued by placing the iPod in a bag of uncooked rice for up to a week), it's a full soaking, which is usually the end for the iPod.

Dry rice absorbs the moisture, taking it away from the iPod. However, after a cycle in the washing machine, the chances are that the power from the battery has caused a short circuit and burnt out some parts of the iPod. I suspect your iPod is not salvageable.
