Move note about not adding separte EGC wires and improve formatting

This is a good answer, but #3 is way over my head. Could you try summarizing in lay terms? What does "ineffective at RF" mean and how does it relate to reducing noise in audio equipment?

I moved the part about improper grounding to the bottom since that wasn't part of my original question. I understand that the only way to add grounding is to run all new wiring from the main panel.

@ThreePhaseEel, yes, I linked to the GE "DFCI" in my question, but can't find it for sale online.

Is it possible the two circuits share a neutral wire? That can cause the GFCI to trip.

Thanks, that is helpful. Your point about requirements does not apply to existing branch circuit wiring, which is allowed to have AFCI protection at the first receptacle regardless of cable/conduit type, as described in 210.12(B)(2).

comment Drawbacks of a stacked top-loading washer + drier
It's not the best article, but it does provide solutions: "Another solution is to use the pre-wash cycle as a soaking cycle, understanding that the tumbling of the washtub increases the amount of physical energy involved."
