The photo isn’t clear enough for a specific identification. The vague body shape and location suggest that it could be a Fishing Spider. They aren’t dangerous and can be gently scooped up and placed outdoors. They often end up in sinks,bathtubs, and laundry rooms seeking a place with water. If you want to try again with a new photo you are welcome to upload one as a new submission.
