What is function of the drum hole plug?

Miles for Model Number lgr5620kq1

ANSWER Hello Miles, This design had, (at one time), self flushing filters in these holes. Since the initial design, the manufacturer came to the realization that these were a trap for bacteria and were causing odor complaints from the customers. The plugs take the place of the filters which, if are present in your unit, should be removed and discarded, being replaced by the plugs.
