Generally, yeah, you'll be fine. The larger the gauge of the wire the better, both in terms of safety (won't overheat/melt/catch fire) and in terms of power loss (the heat generated is you losing power over the length of the cord)The house has washer/dryer, but on 3rd level. Looked at 240v extension cords, are these safe?
I've used a very hefty 50 amp/240v extension cord with my former Tesla many times and it's fine
One thing to note, though, is that the dryer outlet very likely may be 30 amps, so don't just blindly plug in your 50 amp mobile charger. You'll need some way to get the car to bump down to 30 amps, probably with a different EVSE (you could do this in car with Tesla, but not with the Mach E). You may also need a physical plug adapter to go from the 30 amp outlet to whatever you end up using as your EVSE
