SOURCE: Cant open soap drawer on washer
I opened up the top of the washer by unscrewing the screw in the back. then I pressed down hard on the white plastic cover of the soap dispenser that you will see on the front left hand side of the machine. I also moved it slightly to the right by pushing on the side of the same unit.
The soap dispenser then opened up fine. I cleaned out the soap dispenser from any crud that developed in it. Now it opens and closes nicely.
Did you know there is a class action lawsuit against LG for mold that develops inside of this model washer? I joined in the lawsuit. There should be no mold accumulating in any washer.

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.

Upon taking the top of washer off, it exposes the liquid dispenser. There are three snap clips on the right side as you look at it from the front. Unsnap and lift slightly on the dispenser lid. This should provide the clearance you need to open the drawer. Examine the blue covers for the fabric softener and bleach. You will see scrape marks where it has been rubbing on the the top cover when closing and opening. Using a soldering iron or an abrasive, wear down the sharp edges that are catching...This solved the problem for me.. ( :
