Item was purchased Nov 2017. Great item, while it worked [The positive review are not off the mark], but 4 months after manufacturer's 2 year warranty expired, I ran into the following issues:
(a) Faulty control panel - lights blink and/or buttons inoperative
(b) GFCI trips - So an electrocution hazard?
(c) 20 Amp circuit breaker trips - Wow! So a fire hazard?
The first one is known issue with poor water insulation on the circuit board, but LG customer care would not take responsibility (Many posts on Reditt - Should have been a recall, but isn't). 2 weeks later:
(d) Door lock switch failed in closed position with contents locked in.
I had to get a technician. $511 in repairs. And barely a week later:
(e) Machine self reported HE error - either thermostat, or water heater is broken.
(f) Water leak due to failed rubber seal on lower part of door panel
Through this all, I've kept LG informed - turns out these issues are not all that uncommon. LG's only response was that I was out of warranty and so it was (I paraphrase) not their concern.
LG insists that the item must be diagnosed by their "authorized technicians". I live in the SF/Bay area - There are only 4 shops authorized, and none would take my call! Life is too short to spend fixing broken appliances, or dealing with "customer care" that just doesn't "care")_
There are better brands around...
