The bathroom is bound to be humid, I get it, but since I put the washer and dryer in it, it's worse than ever, mold is starting to grow. I can't put the two anywhere else but I'm not that keen on sitting around and cleaning mold each time it grows either. Any advice?

Is there a fan installed?

The answer is ventilation and air flow. You can get your dryer connected to ducting which will take moist air directly outside if the appliance is capable of adding the attachment. Ceiling exhaust fan/s with the window either open by 50mm or add in a screen mesh to window to keep air coming into room to refresh air that is being pulled from the fan

If you don't already have a fan, install a bathroom exhaust fan, these are specifically designed to handle the load and provide sufficient air flow for what you need. Another option is to set up a dehumidifier with enough capacity to draw moisture from the air according to the size of your bathroom. If you are looking for a cheaper option, just install a screen mesh on the window so that you can leave it open as much time as you can, preferably 24/7, without bugs coming in. I hope that you made sure to clean the mold infestation right, by the way. I'd recommend 3% concentration hydrogen peroxide, it's much more efficient as opposed to bleach and white vinegar. I'll leave you with some useful sources, maybe a bit more insight helps you out.
