I'm a bit curious how it got fried. I mean did she leave it plugged in when she put it in there or what? Otherwise water shouldn't do all that much to it, it's just plastic and metal.
Was it plugged in when she washed it? No? Then it will be fine. Make sure it's well dried out before plugging it back in.
A toaster won't be ruined by putting it in the dishwasher unless you are just as unthoughtful as your mom, and plugged it in while still wet. Heating elements do not get water damaged easily. Think stove. They can, however, short out if you plug them in while still wet.
