The 20 amp laundry circuit can have more than one outlet.

The dedicated laundry circuit is for loads in the laundry area.  The required 20 ampere branch circuit is not just for the washing machine.  It is for the laundry receptacle outlet(s).  

The 20 ampere branch circuit for the laundry can provide power to the washer outlet and a general purpose outlet in the laundry room and still meet the requirements of the code. The additional outlet is often used to provide power for ironing.

If there is a sink in the laundry area, any receptacle outlet within 6 ft. of the sink, including the outlet for the washing machine, must be GFCI protected.
