I also tried putting this review on the LG website and had it rejected for "failing to meet review guidelines". I went over the review guidelines and was pretty sure I met them all unless there is an unwritten review guideline not to write negative reviews!
I selected this one because it was third on a well-known consumer magazine's recommended list. It has electronic controls, including a steam cycle (not that important to me) and lots of permutations for spin speed, water temperature, and soiled levels. I use the TurboWash setting most of the time. The clothes come out clean. I especially like the clean cycle. My Duet used to get moldy/mildewed inside the tub so quickly that we always left the door ajar to let it dry between washes; LG recommends doing this as well. But I know letting it dry this way isn't perfect, so, if my washer gets smelly, I can just use that cycle to knock out the mold as soon as I detect it. (If things get bad, try Tide's front loader cleaner; it is caustic smelling, but it works.) The gaskets are also better on the LG than on the old Duet because there's less of a gap between tub and rubber. I briefly considered getting a HE top loader without an agitator, but when I saw the large capacity models, I questioned whether I was big enough to lean over and get an errant sock out of the bottom.
Some of the features of this model are amusing, such as the way it plays a tune when it's done (you can turn it off) and the ability to do diagnostics via cell phone (haven't tried it.) I also question whether I really need steamed/sanitized laundry when the detergent is supposed to do that.
Other features can be disconcerting at first. For instance, the tub rotates gently at first as the machine senses the size of the load and the amount of water needed to wash it. The first time, I panicked and thought the water wasn't hooked up properly. And the machine squirts water into the detergent cup at a fairly high pressure, making a strange sound, and it took me several seconds to figure out what that noise was.
The only issue I've had after a year of owning this is water leaking into the bottom tray when I use the towel setting. I have NO idea why this particularly setting causes problems because I've washed comforters in it, using the Bulky setting, with no leaking. Cleaning out the pump filter didn't help. I simply don't use that setting anymore, which is all right because the towels get just as clean on the Normal and Heavy-Duty settings.
I really love this machine. It takes a while to adapt from a top loader to a front loader, but if you've already used a front loader, you'll likely love this one as much as I do.

The only downside, if it is one, is that water sometimes pools in the ring around the door. We had a front-loader before that had the same problem, so we just left the door open after each load to allow it to dry out. LG thought about this problem, and added a little magnetic plunger on the bottom of the door. It's a little hard to explain, but it basically makes it easy to prop the door open after each load, just enough to allow it to ventilate. From the outside, it's hard to tell it's even propped open, and it provides little enough resistance that you don't notice when you actually intend to close the door.
Speaking of the door, it's very sturdy and has a good, solid feel when opening and closing. This is especially notable because many of the other brands do not provide this feeling. We visited multiple stores, comparing many makes and models when we picked this one, and the door ultimately sold us. When opening or closing a Maytag or Whirlpool, for instance, you almost get the impression that you're breaking it, as it sounds and feels snapping a piece of plastic. The LG has a solid metal tongue, pushing into a metal latch that just feels right.
And with all this said, the LG cost us less than the others. By the time we were done comparing all our options, there was no other choice.
