I don't see how it can be done.  You will need to disassemble the front panel and remove the drain hose to physically clear it out.  Usually it's clogged with sand or dirt.

My compressor builds up pressure in the tank but nothing comes out unless the unit is on and then it just trickles out like nothing is in the tank

have you drained tank
air tanks fill with moisture and crud if not regularly drained
this takes up room in tank and will eventually clog valves etc
you may have to remove hose conection from tank to clean out crud that has clogged it

Hose not draining, bucket only fills

The easiest way to unstop the hose is to blow air through the end enough to clear the clumped up dust at the other end using air compressor or air pump.

do not close your vents on the a/c unit because this makes the compressor have higher head pressures in the long run will cause the compressor to fail it will last longer if you set the thermostat to lower setting rather than closing off the vents. You need to clean out your condensate drain I use a small wire brush and water hose clean them out.

Water coming out airbush from hose

An in-line water separator should be used before the supply line, a good air filter wouldn't hurt either.

Water remaining in bottom after cycle

Disconnect the drain hose at the sink drain. Reverse the action of your vacuum so that it blows (or use an air compressor if you have access to one), and blow the hose clean--it should discharge any drain hose contents into the washer cavity and hopefully cause faster draining in the future.

No cool air and oil in one of the drain lines

I would say that you have a refrigerant leak. The oil was pulled out of the compressor and leaked out with the refrigerant.
