backstay nailed it.

(A)typical basement laundry:
  • Iron running on high/cotton setting
  • Gas dryer with 110V for drum/fan
  • Motor inrush to start the spin cycle on the washer
  • Steam press / cleaner
  • Internet router/FIOS ONT

I thought the 20A Laundry Circuit was for the Laundry appliances . Iron and so forth . The washer can be on a 15A circuit in the same area .

I have installed 2 circuits in High End Ressi quite a bit , but i run both 20A anyway .

No, you can plug in the washer there too.

That would be good for the appliances I own that have a 20A plug on them, oh wait that number is zero. I will stay with 15A circuits.
Not sure what what you getting at, our 20amp plugs in Canada will allow 15 or 20 amp appliances to be plugged in. And yes we can get just a t-slot 20amp. But that wouldn't work out so good on a kitchen counter. Or laundry room.

used to always run a dedicated 20 amp circuit for the washer

and if they had a gas dryer I would run a 20 amp circuit for it too

and if they had any other receptacles in there I would run another circuit for them

now......theyre all on the same circuit

Shockdoc would be proud
Could have been your old jobs I was seeing ! I'm also doing the Shockdoc method.
