Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
How long did you dry it out? is the first thing I would consider about this case.
But as to replacing a speaker: yes, that can be done, but you need to consider and find out whether the sound circuitry in the Samsung device is in working order first. Have you tried a earphone or headset on the device? that would test whether 1. sound settings are not muting the sound output, and 2. whether sound circuitry etc. is basically working to a large extent.

Good. That means you would not have to have the circuitry replaced, just the speaker. The question is: how long have you dried out the phone?
OK. A replacement speaker would be needed, at least as a first try then.
There are three sources for one listed here - all are either about $8 or about $10 apiece:
Do you need further information?

Very well. I think the speaker is not the problem then.
Other things may be wrong. Circuitry feeding the speaker. The speaker connector might be corroded with dampness - try re-seating the speaker connector, if you can do that over again without impatience, and it might just help, perhaps.
Otherwise, replacing the card that the speaker connector plugs into would be the next step. And that might be more expensive (as well as more work) than replacing the phone. Let's proceed (after trying the above recommendation about carefully re-seating the speaker connector securely) as you prefer.
OK. There is plenty of time and no hurry (on my part.)
