Best Washing Machine For Farm Clothes  

Life on the farm pretty much guarantees a day spent in the dirt, in the muck and the mud, and working on farm equipment and implements that are often covered in rust, grease, and all kinds of “goo”.

When you’re working on a farm you’re going to get pretty dirty pretty consistently, day in and day out – and you need laundry machines that can handle this kind of use and abuse.

Finding the best washing machine for farm clothes, though, isn’t exactly the simplest and most straightforward thing in the world.

There are a lot of options out there that promise heavy-duty performance but aren’t able to live up to expectations.

That’s why we put together this quick guide.

Our Top Pick – Samsung FlexWash Washer

This Samsung washing machine is one of their heaviest-duty appliances, a washing machine that’s going to be able to effortlessly handle anything and everything you throw at it on the farm – day in and day out – without coming apart, without breaking down, and without losing any cleaning effectiveness.

It’s a special machine.


  • 5.5 ft.³ capacity
  • Frontloading
  • Made from heavy-duty construction materials like stainless steel
  • Weighs 293 pounds
  • One of the best warranties in the business

What We Like Most

There’s a lot to fall in love with when it comes to this Samsung washing machine, especially when you are going to be washing farm clothes on a regular basis.

For one thing, the washing machine is split into two different levels – a top section designed almost as a “prewash” and the main washing machine chamber itself.

Being able to run your farm clothes through the top section, getting as much dirt, grime, and gunk out of them as possible before you run them through the main wash cycle is a game changer.

This chamber also does double duty as a fantastic option for lighter weight or more delicate farm clothes – like your favorite flannels, for example.

Aside from that, though, the durability, capacity, and cleaning performance of this Samsung unit are all fantastic across the board.

What We Didn’t Love

This thing is a beast!

Weighing in at 293 pounds you’re probably going to need a couple of people to help you move it around and get it into position. And then it’s going to stay there.

The top unit is a little on the smaller side of things (to be expected), so that can slow you down when running laundry load after laundry load.

Other than that, though, there’s really no problems with this washer.

Pros and Cons

  • Overbuilt for heavy-duty purposes
  • Fantastic cleaning capabilities and a 5.5 ft.³ capacity
  • Legendary Samsung engineering and durability

A Great Budget Friendly Alternative – Frigidaire FFTW4120SW

This Frigidaire might not look quite as fancy as the Samsung we just reviewed, but it also has a price tag that’s nearly half of the Samsung – without having to sacrifice a lot of the cleaning capabilities.


  • 4.1 ft.³ capacity
  • Top loading
  • Measures 28” x 27” x 43”
  • Weighs 109 pounds

What We Like Most

Certainly a bit lighter and definitely more compact, this farm clothes washing machine isn’t going to need your breakout the tractor just to get it into position.

On top of that, the max fill capabilities of this Frigidaire washing machine mean that you’re going to be able to completely soak your clothes from top to bottom – every single fiber – pulling out every bit of dirt, grime, and gunk as it goes through a washing cycle.

Five different soil levels (including Extra Heavy) allow you to control how much agitation occurs during the water cycle, too. Crank it all the way up and even your filthiest farm clothes will come out squeaky clean.

What We Didn’t Love

The Frigidaire might not have the durability that the Samsung has, just because it isn’t quite as overbuilt.

On top of that, the 4.1 ft.³ capacity is certainly on the smaller side when stacked up head-to-head with the Samsung option above.

Pros and Cons

  • Well-made Frigidaire washing machine with a great warranty
  • Max fill guarantees your clothes get soaked all the way through
  • Five soil levels guarantee you get a deep clean every time
  • 4.1 ft.³ capacity is somewhat small for farm usage
  • Longevity may be a problem with a “regular” machine like this

Closing Thoughts

All things considered, you really can’t go wrong with either of the two washing machines highlighted above to help you clean your farm clothes consistently.

The Samsung is more expensive and more feature-rich to be sure, but the Frigidaire gets the job done just as well!
