Nowadays, most of them brands including the Korean one are very reliable. One machine can easily last you 5 years. My Samsung machine has been serving me faithfully for about 7 years without any problem and is still going strong.:)

You can't get this anymore, but my mum's AEG lasted 24 years with only two repairs/maintenance within the first five years.

When it finally died two years ago, it was a just a small plastic part that burned off from over use, and the part has been discontinued. Even then, AEG can machine the part for us, just that it will cost something like RM500 to machine and fly it in. Decided then to change to a newer machine for RM1500. The Karung Guni man bought the carcass for RM150!!!

$300? I sell you my second hand washing machine.......If you get below $300, you are asking for trouble as it's too small to wash blanket or curtains. Second is that the lifespan is much shorter. Third those cheap washing machine spins so fast, it may damage your clothes too.

If you can spend less on your shoes, dress, cosmetics, eat at home(as I noticed you like to eat out with friends) and whatever else you spend. Then you can buy yourself a good washing machine that does not damage your clothes.
