Washer circuit

I have a dedicated 20A washer circuit and 20A single outlet just for a washer. Outlet is in the adjacent to the bathroom wall. There is a bathtub on the other side of the wall tub and supply lines in the same wall. Does this outlet have to be GFCI? I would say yes since it's within 6' to the tub but the outlet is in the hallway, not the bathroom. Also, the outlet is unaccessible unless you remove ~320lbs, 80" tall washer/dryer stackable unit.

The other side of the wall has no relation to the tub unless it is a half height wall.

The answer to your question is "no". Neither the bathtub, nor the single outlet, nor the weight of the washing machine, nor the inaccessibility of the outlet, have anything to do with this. The answer would still be "no" even if none of this were true.
