Status: in use

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.

How to map

Place a node node at the location of the washing machine with the tag amenity=washing_machine. Do not tag private washing machines!

Useful additional keys/tags

Use payment:coins=yes/no, payment:contactless=yes/no etc. to indicate the payment=* type.

As a separate node, use amenity=dryer to indicate that a drying your laundry is also possible here.
