My laundry room right now is setup with the washer beside the dryer and then a laundry sink beside the dryer. I've been researching whether this is a problem having a sink close to a 240v outlet but can't find anything that says this is against code. The only thing I've found is that 120v outlets need to be GFCI. Firstly is this correct that 240v in a laundry room does not require GFCI when close to a sink. And secondly, if this is true, why? My basic logic would make me think that 240v is more dangerous than 120v.
