Can I cap off or plug my washing machine drain if I never use it?

not only can you but should you. yes is the answer to both.
if the water in the trap evaporates then you can have sewer gas enter the house.
there are lots of rubber caps (goes over) and rubber plugs (goes into) to choose from.

Or maybe a plastic bag with tape around the pipe, depending on how the washer drain was installed.
