Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
I thought the problem was one of the detergent or softener dishes was sticking up so I taped it down. Still it will not open. If I hit the front of the drawer, it may open. I notice a very black substance in the rear upper right corner. Looks like something has burnt, but I smell nothing.
I use the machine now and just leave the drawer closed. Could it be the solenoid valve?

SOURCE: LEAKING DISPENSER DRAWER
Refer to your manual regarding the dispenser tray. You could try using a tooth brush to clean out dry detergent, which could be blocking the flow of water. You can take out tray to clean, ref manual.

SOURCE: Detergent dispenser drawer stuck
You may have to remove the washer top (three phillips screws at the back, then push top back about two inches and lift it off) then drill a hole in the top of the plastic dispenser to allow you to use an object like a screwdriver to maneuver the offending part around so it will drop down and allow you to open the dispenser drawer. Use foil tape to seal hole if you don't want to buy a new dispenser. Clean out blue plastic dispenser parts so detergent will siphon out completely. Pushing down on the center tab at the back of the dispenser should allow you to take the dispenser drawer the remainder of the way out. In the future, make sure you do not use over 1 tablespoon of HE soap (and 1 teaspoon of fabric softner) max per load. Even less if you have 2x or more detergent.

I had the same problem my fabric softener would not dispense.Close shut-off valves and take off the water hoses off the back of the washer and look for blockage on the screen.Mine was plugged up and after cleaning it off it works like new.

SOURCE: Fabric softener stays in drawre
We just had a tech come out to fix this problem for us. Essentially, the problem is that the fabric softener builds up and gets clogged. He cleaned out a solid hunk of frabric softener gunk, and suggested that we dilute our fabric softener with water to keep this buildup from happening again.

You can get all of Whirlpools user guides here:

I just use liquitabs - which go directly into the drum, and fabric softender.
