Sheet vinyl would be a better choice. Because of the high humidity level and high traffic area vinly will stand up better than carpet. If your washer leaks, it's easy to remove the water from a hard floor. Extracting water from a carpet is a difficult job and the carpet will probably have a foul odour till it dries.

Go with the vinyl.
