Hello pkh.  Welcome to the Community!

The problem with getting an outlet involves more than just making the plug prongs match up.
Most countries in Europe supply 230 volt 50 Hertz electrical power, where here in the U.S. a washer would use 120 volt, 60 Hertz power.  You cannot just mount a different plug and expect your washer to work.

While I have seen power adapters for international travel that allow small items to run, I am not aware of any way to power a clothes washer made for the European electrical grid.
