I got my fixed last night. It was the "lid" for the softener despenser that was making the drawer stick. To remove it you need to take the top off of the washer. There is are two plastic "holders" on the back of the machine that hold the top onto the machine. Each of these "holders" have two screws, remove them, then remove the holder. You can then, with some effort, slide the top of the washer towards the back the then lift it off. You will then be able to see plastic tub that contains the drawer for the despensers. You can't remove this tub, but on the side facing the inside of the washer are a couple of tabs holding the top of the plastic down. You can gently release these tabs and pull up on the top slightly. This gave me enough "play" to then open the drawer. The problem, I believe, is that over time, that tub moves and makes it impossible for the drawer to open. With trial and error, I found that with removing the "lid" for the softener despenser, and completely closing the lid of the plastic tub, that that solved the problem.

Probably has water deposit minerals build up on it. Push and or pull with pliers until freely moves,soak in Lime away solvent ,toothbrush on.

Great advice. I used a portion of you plan. Pulled off the top, but since the softener cup is on the right, I only uncliped the 3 clips on that side of the assembly. With those loose, I could pry gently up on the back portion of the assembly lid, and the drawer pulled out.
I also see no need for the cover, other than a measuring device. So removed the screws at the front, pushed the assembly back into the washer, and unclipped the rest of the lid. Once the lid of the tray assembly was off, it was easy to remove the softener cover. The only challenging part was getting the re-closed assembly to go back into the cut-out in the face metal. I got caught a couple times, but getting my hand up under the assemble allowed be to push evenly up on both sides as I pushed it forward into place.
Now the door works fine again. Seems to be a significant design flaw by LG.
Hope the helps other.

This could be due to 2 problems: not enough water or water is not being pumped hard enough through the system. The 'not enough water' is easy to check - open the door in the middle of a wash cycle. If you have enough water (about 1" or more) then that is probably ok. The 'not pumping hard enough' could be as simple as plugged up filters and holes in the spray arms. Remove the racks and disassemble the lower spray arm and the filter assembly all the way down past the screen. Clean the arm holes, throughly clean the screen, clean everything. Pull the top spray arm and throughly clean the spray holes there. Put it all together and run a cycle. You should see a pronounced increase in the sound of the water spraying around. This should fix your problem - it did for me.
