Why did Jesus wash their feet
Jesus was showing them that he also was a servent. And that he was humble. and by washing Judas feet that he had forgave Judas for what he had done. Jesus knew that it was God's will for him to die. And he knew that he couldn't  be disobenant.

Why Did Jesus Wash the disciples feet when Judas was present?
The tradition in those days was for the lowest person in the room to wash the feet of those who entered a room after a journey because sandals did not afford a complete covering for the feet.  Jesus was demonstrating a form of admonishment to his disciples to show them their arrogance and how they should humble themselves from the high place with the willingness to at times take the low place.  Some of the humility and humbleness that is spoken of in 2Chronicles 7:14.

Why did Jesus wash the disciples` feet when Judas was present, rather than watiing until that betrayer had left?
This would demonstrate Jesus' humbleness, even toward his disciples as towards the Lord and Father.

I think because he wanted Judas to know that he knew he betrayed him. He wanted him to know to treat one another the way he treated you.

Why did Jesus wash the disciples` feet when Judas was present, rather than watiing until that betrayer had left?
Some ancients have supposed that our Lord began with washing the feet of Judas, to inspire him with sentiments of compunction and remorse, to melt him down with kindness and to show His disciples how they should act toward their enemies. He said, `Ye are clean, but not all` - It appears he washed the feet of all twelve; but as no external ablutions can purify a hypocrite or a traitor, therefore Judas still remained unclean. ''from Clarke`s Commentary''

Peter said to him, You will never wash my feet! What feelings do you think Peter feel then? surprise, schock, proud refusal. What?he seems to almost give an order to Jesus - I will not allow you to do that. They don`t understand and yet they have already

Jesus Washes His Disciples' Feet

Now before the feast of the Passover, Jesus, knowing that his time had come that he would depart from this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. After supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him, Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he came forth from God, and was going to God, arose from supper, and laid aside his outer garments. He took a towel, and wrapped a towel around his waist. Then he poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. Then he came to Simon Peter. He said to him, "Lord, do you wash my feet?"
Jesus answered him, "You don't know what I am doing now, but you will understand later."
Peter said to him, "You will never wash my feet!"
Jesus answered him, "If I don't wash you, you have no part with me."
Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!"
Jesus said to him, "Someone who has bathed only needs to have his feet washed, but is completely clean. You are clean, but not all of you." For he knew him who would betray him, therefore he said, "You are not all clean." So when he had washed their feet, put his outer garment back on, and sat down again, he said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you? You call me, 'Teacher' and 'Lord.' You say so correctly, for so I am. If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you. Most certainly I tell you, a servant is not greater than his lord, neither one who is sent greater than he who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.
