I mean to say that the purpose of GFI protection at
the level of the outlet is targeted towards hand-held tools. That is why you
don't see a GFI on a washing machine. It is a stationary piece of equipment,
and the plug serves as it's disconnect for servicing.

I believe receptacles, including washer, within 6' of a sink require a
GFCI. Also in unfinished basement areas.
