An individual washing machine which is available for public use. It's almost always a part of a laundry room. You should tag the laundry area with shop=laundry, and you can optionally tag the individual washing machines with amenity=washing_machine.
This tag is currently not widely used.
For campsites, people often tag the campsite with washing_machine=yes and/or dryer=yes. See Proposed_features/Extend_camp_site. Those tags are widely used.
Not to be confused with amenity=dryer.
Never use for washing machines that are not available for public use, due to verifiability and privacy concerns.
