But remember, there are more (and older) Whirlpool and Maytags out there...
I've had my LG washer & dryer for about 16 months and no problems...
Most of the older washers had transmissions, etc..
Most of the new Front Loaders use Direct Drive Motors (but more electronics)
One of the complaints in the past with LG was finding a service person & parts.
That has improved, but before buying any appliance, check the service manuals online to see how itís built, diagnostics, etc.
Find out who will service it in your area and if you ever plan to repair it yourself, check if service manuals and parts are available online.
