Hot and cold water should not be a problem but to get to drain may cause you to do floor work. Tell us more about floor and what kind of vent pipe you have for shower.

Threads combined.

We need pictures in order to help you........ how-to-insert-pictures.
You need to know where the drain/stack is and what size it is in order to attach into it.

Perhaps a floor plan showing where the existing water lines and drains would be more useful.
Also where you want to put the washer.
The picture of the vent does not help as you do not show where it is.

I found moving the wet bar to kitchenette confusing or is this another project?

Looks like the closet side wall is the faucet side of the shower so getting water to the closet should not be a problem.
For the drain it would probably be best to open up some drywall on the back wall of the closet then drill through the bottom plate to get into the crawlspace and hook it up there. You would have to hake sure that you do not hit a floor joist.

I am assuming that the crawl space never gets below freezing and that most of your plumbing is down there.

OK you will need to cut some drywall so you can get to the water supply lines for the shower.
Then you tee into them and then hook these lines up to a supply station, see below.
https://www.homedepot.com/s/washing%...station?NCNI-5

Note that you will definitely not be able to use the shower when the washer is running because you are tapping into it's supply lines.

Next you have to confirm that the vent is a plumbing vent.
If yes then cut drywall and tee into the vent pipe and plumb in a washer stand pipe and trap..
Just Google "clothes washer stand pipe"
Check the washer install instructions just in case they need something special.

You seem to be a newbie to this so it would be very useful if you have a friend who has done some plumbling to help you out.
