replacing a washer with a fridge

I have a laundry room in which a washer/dryer was never installed in.
It has a receptacle tied to a single-pole 20 amp circuit which I believe is dedicated as well as the standard hot/cold water supply.

Since one of our renters is drinking directly from the cartons/bottles instead of using a glass, I want to put a separate refrigerator (with icemaker & water) in that room instead so that any larger milk/juice supplies can be stored away from the main fridge.

Given the above particulars, is this something quick & easy (i.e. "plug & connect")? If not, what would I need to make it happen, e.g. a more powerful circuit, different type receptacle, water line adapters, etc.

tks,

-MC

The laundry receptacle should be perfectly OK for a refrig. It is probably a ddicated 20 amp circuit which is fine. If you have an icemaker, an adapter from hose thread to 1/4" compression for copper tube or polyethylene is readily available at any hardware or plumbing outlet. If there is an unused dryer exaust port, ensure that it is covered to prevent entry of cold air and warm-blooded pests.
