Since we are translating phonetic English shouldn't 와싱턴 be okay as well?

I think these are set spellings, even for loan words. Like we say 'baguette' and you couldnt spell it as 'bagget' or 'bagwet' or whatever, even though it sounds the same or very similar. Still a learner so not sure though :)

That's because it is Japanese. The word 아파트 comes from Japanese "apato."
