    The code says "laundry " not "washer" but wouldnt wherever the washer is be considered a laundry area?

    Well probably yes. Keep in mind it didn't say "laundry" before 2014 NEC, but GFCI may still been required if in an area otherwise requiring GFCI protection.
    I live for today, I'm just a day behind.

    Yes you're correct. I was thinking too far back, laundry was added in the 2014 NEC. For the 2011 and earlier it wasn't automatically required for the laundry area. For some reason the "old instructor" had me thinking that this conversation was along time ago. I should have noted that in my response.

    Laundry is from the word launder which means "to wash"
    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
    I can't help it if I'm lucky

    Now just to let you know, as an aside, I own two washers that have no electric cord on them... Both in Jamaica... One is made from a Pickle Barrel... 30 gallon... one was bought and uses my Bike Exercise machine to power it... both work... but prefer bigger machines for Jeans..lol
