The incident took place on July 26 at his home in Lakemba in Sydney on July 26.
His parents first called paramedics, who sought help from NSW Fire and Rescue.
The rescue team took just over an hour to save him and he was taken to hospital as a precaution after being evacuated from the washing machine.
"It's definitely one of the most unusual jobs we've had," said a rescue team official.
The man remained calm throughout the rescue "but he was in a lot of discomfort", added the official.
