Because laundry rooms involve heat and water, the water especially can have or create issues. I would not EVER purchase a property with laundry facilities on the top floor -- simple as that.

Heh, you're not the one who does the laundry, are you? Your wife is the one who has to shlep the laundry down 2 floors to the basement and 2 floors back up to the bedrooms, right? Try that with laundry of 2 adults and 3 kids.

If you are really concerned, there's a nifty device called a washing machine overflow tub.
