It's very difficult to overpitch homebrewing. You can dump another batch directly onto the yeast cake after racking the previous beer off which is more viable yeast than you will get after yeast washing.

Making a starter with washed yeast serves at least a couple of purposes:
1) Assures viability
B) "Wakes" the yeast up prior to pitching.
