Do not over-tighten the securing screws when reinstalling the drawer.

You must remove the drawer from the LG washing machine pedestal when items get stuck behind the drawer. This happens when you put too much in the drawer. Unlike most pedestals, the LG pedestal does not have latches to disconnect the drawer from the drawer slides. Removing a pedestal drawer on an LG washing machine requires disassembling it from the rail.
