Washing Machine/Utility Sink

What is current NEC code regarding distance from a sink to an outlet that has to be GFI protected?

The situation I have is my utlity sink is next to my washing maching outlet. I know there may be issues with placing a washing machine on a GFI also. Unsure if it is still true for a new front load washing maching though.

6 ft. from sink in a laundry, no matter what the receptacle is used for.
