Yep, I run washers when I have them. They can make wheelchanges slower so you may wish to ditch them if you need to swap out wheels often and/or quickly.
They're optional, but I especially like them on bikes with aluminum rear dropouts. They tend to get dug up a bit after a few years. Washer usage slows the digging and gouging process.
