Access to Washer Question

My family and I just moved into a new apartment and we had to replace the washer because it was broken. My step-dad gets angry about my washing twice a week acusing me of abusing the washer that way. If I wash once a week I'll then be accused of abusing the washer by overloading it, either way I'm screwed.

The only laundromat is miles away, it's too expensive, and I don't have a car.
I won't wear dirty clothes to reduce clothes to wash. My mom and step-dad won't let me handwash my clothes.

I posted a message on Yahoo Answers and they said washing that amount isn't abusing the washer and my counselor says she washes more than me. My mom say she washes once a week, what's my problem, washers nowadays aren't built to last.

What can I say or do to have access to the washer?
