No need for fy hun(an), etc here as the ym- prefix means that the action is a reflexive one.

  • golchi - washing, to wash (something/someone else)
  • ymolchi - washing oneself, to wash oneself

So:

  • Dw i'n ymolchi - I am washing myself; I am getting washed.
  • Dw i wedi ymolchi - I have got washed; I have washed myself.
  • Dw i'n golchi'r llestri - I am washing the dishes
  • Dw i wedi golchi'r car. - I have washed the car.
  • Wyt ti wedi ymolchi eto? - Have you got washed yet?
