LG LC500 through washer and dryer

Hello, last night I accidentally left my phone in my pocket when I put it in the laundry basket and it went through the washer and dryer, is there any chance it could work? What should I do?

Well, you're the only one who can try. If it works, you're lucky. If it doesn't work any more, send it to a cell phone repair business.

If the phone cannot be fixed, you have a very expensive paperweight. I do wish you good luck but I am not too optimistic the phone is savable.

Hopefully you didn't turn it on to see if it was dead!

Best chance is to remove the battery and bury it in uncooked white rice for about 3 days to remove moisture.

Good luck!
