Don't buy this washer
At first, this washer seemed great, lot's of fancy features but it wasn't long that the smell started and no matter what I do, it doesn't go away. I have babied this machine beyond what is reasonable and acceptable especially for how much this cost. I run the tub clean cycle with affresh or baking soda and bleach. I leave the door open always - very inconvenient in my laundry room that doubles as a hallway to the garage. I drain the water at the bottom after EVERY use. I only use a small amount of he detergent. I wash most of my clothes in hot water. I use extra water and extra rinses on towels. I never use fabric softener. All this and all I have to show for it is stinky clothes and a seriously bad attitude toward front loaders. I miss my top-loader!!!! No amount of energy savings is worth this headache.

Quiet - For a washer this size, yes. You can't tell if it's vibrating either.
Minimal maintenance - Just need to clean the inside of the door and water filter every month or so. But it's not a big deal if you don't do it for every month.
Steam cleaning - Takes a bit longer to wash in this mode but it cleans without doing the damage.
Sanitary mode - Extremely hot water washing mode that kills 99.9% of germs
Energy efficient - I'm not sure how it can clean so well but it does; when the clothes just barely look wet.
Sadly this model is now discontinued according to LG.com website

We've enjoyed our washer and dryer over the last year and have had no problems. Just make sure the leave the door open after washing a load to ensure it doesn't start to smell.
