Check to see if the drain is blocked by particles/debris of any type. Also make sure that the unit is level--as level as possible. I have my Whirlpool Portable AC in 4 inch bed risers so I can drain it really easily. I slip under a small low rise pan and drain it every two days or so when it is running. Mine leaked when I tried to incline it backwards to make it drain faster. As soon as I leveled the unit the leak stopped and water again came out the hose. These units must be kept level to prevent leaks so now I always do that.

SOURCE: kenmore air conditioner is leaking

Your A/C have to be tilted to the out side of the windows!!! It will drain it self to the sidewalk.
Do not set your A/C horizontally perfect!!!
It has to have tilt up to 15 degrees to the outside of a window.
Outside should be lower than in side.

Interestingly, your Kenmore Portable AC is manufactured by Delonghi. Occasionally, what you are experiencing happens when the humidity level is high and the air intake filter needs to be cleaned.
That also means that you will need to drain the tank, at least once.

You know where the drain plug is, so you can either carefully take it outside to drain or put a low sided container, capable of holding 1 1/2 quarts of water under the drain plug. If you drain it inside, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before attempting to drain it.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

We have a Kenmore Elite 795 fridge. It is constantly leaking water from the bottom right corner of the unit onto the floor. There always seems to be a build up of ice at the bottom of the unit.


Usually the result of CONDENSATION due to eithr bad door seals allowing air and moister in to condensate. or a plugged or clogged evaporator drain line which causes water to back up and freeze or leak out the lowest point the bottom?

I have purchased a Kenmore Elite A100E floor model airconditioner and when it is running water pours out from where the wheel castors are connected underneath the unit??


This also happen to me and it means that your drain is clogged it needs to be cleaned out. Your grill in unit could be dirty and probably needs to be cleaned also.It is really simply but might sound complicated it's not and if it is not under warranty it would be cheaper to do it yourself. You need to take offf the sides and get a little flash light one of the sides have the drain hole and you get like a piece of wire or something like that, something thin to dig out what is clogging the hole & get a small dust brush or vacuum the dust from the grill and drain the air conditioner put the plug or stopper back in and put the sides back on and screw them into place and everything such be fine.

My unit doesn't drain. isn't there a rear port or hole that water should drain from?


There is no drain on some of the newer ones,that plug into a 110 outlet.Look on the bottom of the case,to the rear of the unit.If it has a drain the case will have a small hole in it.

My Air conditioner leaks water


All A/C units drain water and need a clear path to drain water.
If window unit the unit MUST lean to the outside so the condensation water can drain that direction and insure the drain hole is clear of debree.
If an indoor central a/c unit the drain must be clogged the unit is leaning away from drain or the pipe going to the drain is clogged somewhere as it exits house. Cant drain if doesn't have a clear path to do it's job. Doubt it's a problem with the brand.
