Depends on how often you use and maintain it. I worked on a 1967 Lady Kenmore last week that is working just fine after 45 years.

Expected longevity for Electrolux washer EIFLW55HMBO


The average lifespan of a washer, whether it is a top-loader or a front-loader, is about 14 years. This is determined by calculating seven loads of washing per week, or doing one load per day.
By the Numbers Washers are rated by how many cycles they can perform before they break. Each load is considered one cycle, so for a washer to last 14 years, it must be able to handle about 5,100 cycles. Of course, machines that cost less may only be rated at 4,000 cycles, while high-end machines may be rated at 8,000 cycles or higher. If possible, always check the cycle rating before you buy. You may find a bargain where you'll pay only a couple of hundred dollars more for a washer that is rated at twice as many cycles.
Stress The biggest cause of washer breakdown is stress. Overloading the washer puts stress on all of the extra parts, like the motor, the drive belts and the coupling. The harder these parts work, the shorter their lifespan. An 8,000-cycle washer can be reduced to a 1,000-cycle washer if constantly stressed with loads that are way over capacity. To prevent this, wash smaller loads and take larger objects, like quilts, comforters and sleeping bags, to a commercial laundry. This will limit the stress on the washing machine components and assure you of a longer washing machine lifespan.
Extend the Lifespan Wash less to extend the lifespan of your appliance. Even if you cut out just one load per week, you have automatically extended the lifespan of your washer. If you only do three loads per week, you'll effectively double the washer's lifespan.

During spin cylces very load noises----bearings gone less than three old got estimate of 4-500 to fix does that sound right?


Yes, that is a good price for a main bearing repair. I wouldn't recommend it. I would buy either a whirlpool top load washer with and agitator ( we are doing to many repairs on the wp washers without agitators), or I would buy the super capacity front load duet. You will save more money in the long run with the front loader. Both of these have been the best washers built in the last 30 years. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

The tub won't drain and it spins very slowly. I've also noticed, over the last couple years, some oil/rust spots on my clothes. It is a top loading washer that is over 20 years old.

Frigidaire Front Load Washer FAFW3574K - Is this a good washer, and how long should I expect it to last?


Hi,
There are many things that can facotr into the life of a washer.
How many loads a week do you do?
What are the size of the loads?
What is the quality of the water?

Under many circumstances you can reasonably expect your washer to last 8-10 years.
The factors mentioned above can change that higher or lower depending mostly on your useage..

My top loading washing machine suddenly will not start.


LET ME SEE: YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE WASHER NOT STARTING, RIGHT? SOUNDS LIKE THE MOTOR HAS GONE BAD ON IT. BUT CHECK THE TIMER FIRST. IT COULD BE YOUR TIMER. IF IT AIN'T THAT, CHECK THE MOTOR AND CALL YOUR REPAIRMAN IMEDIATELY FOR SERVICE. WHAT BRAND AND YEAR IS YOUR WASHER?

Agitator Dogs


Nothing is manufactured to last these days. What brand of dogs are you using ? FSP is the original brand and should be used. Also, check the inside of the agitator. Are the gear teeth in good shape ? It only take one bad tooth to destroy the dogs.

Lopsided during spin


  This can be caused by a brake that has failed.  Try to spin inner tub with washer off.  It should NOT turn.  If it turns the brake is bad and is allowing the tub to spin when agitating.  This causes clthes to bunch up.
