With LG did you face any issues with the door lock sensor?, because with IFB, our one and at a relatives house, had to replace the front load door sensor within 2-3 years. 2 different models.

did you mean ‘better’?

with brand names, one can loose objectivity and bias can creep in.

like my own bias is heavily against IFB (despite them being the first desi brand to introduce front load type clothes washing machine in India).

Infact had Videocon group not got down the road they went and had the service support remained as in the bygone era, i would much rather find value in their machines.
Although we never had their bigger sized (8kg plus) or tilted drum design machines
a few of our close acquaintance did (use those Videocons).

We have only had LG washing machines in our homes since over two decades now.

conceptually, i despise front-load design🤢 … or at-least the ones i have come across. Fancy features like low water consumption apart… where is the 😟damn😣 lint filter in these?
in top loads, at-least if the net/filter was… user accessible then any coins, safety pins and even bits of paper or currency would usually easily get separated from clanging in the drum or damaging the clothes.
this is NOT so in the front loads i have seen, used. not to mention that all those bits, lint stuck to the clothes (coupled with the water saving/ low water use feature) meant … that folks like me would either not use those appliances or rinse the clothes by hand.. under running water.

Both the models you mentioned use similar technology. So go with your preference. I would choose LG over IFB. IFBs need voltage stabilizer (buck/boost) in case of high/low voltages

Low water consumption isn’t a fancy feature, it is a result of the way wash is handled in front loaders

And most machines these days top or front loaders come without lint filter. The machines are designed to put out the lint through drain pump/pipe. Any coins, keys, hair etc gets tangled near the drain pump which is accessible for the end users to clean.
But it is recommended or advised not to put hard/sharp material along with clothes for washing

If you notice, those machines which comes with lint filters are not so easy to clean the drain pipe, but the one’s without the lint filter come with a drain pump which lets user access for cleaning if required.
