A beached whale is one that is accidently washed up onto the shore. It then gets stuck on the beach, which explains "beached" whale. Often beached whales cannot get back out by themselves. Sometimes people push them back. Sometimes the whales die. A whale that has been washed up on a beach, island, or seashore.
I can think of three contexts where you could need the word "washed': A washed cloth(as in one that has been washed). Washed functions as an adjective. washed - lavé une drap lavée He has washed all the clothes. Past participle. washed - lavé Il a lavé touts les vêtements. He washed a lot of things. Imparfait. washed - lavait Il lavait beaucoup de choses.
