Mensagem:  If someone is all washed up that means he/she is acabado. vencido or liquidado. The word all is what makes the difference.

He is washed up can mean lavado.

Washed up on the beach means levado à praia pelas ondas.

There are many, many uses of wash and it is a word that one should make lists of....as a noun and as a verb.

Wash: esteira de navio.......see!!
