Question about LG LWHD1200FR Wall/Window Air Conditioner
Thanks turns out it was clogged so it was leaking out the front just cleaned it out with a hose

Don't turn A/C unit on it's side or stand it up on it's rear. Bad news, period.
Unit is leaking out front portion because into sill or window casing because when you installed it you probably didn't see the part in the owners/install manual about leaving a 3-8 degree tilt toward the rear of the unit so that all water will run to the rear and drip off. You more than likely have it level, readjust unit to have a little tilt to the rear if you don't have a level.
Since it has been sitting this way for the season, recommend you slide unit out of it's case, clean out leaves or other dirt build up that's collected since original installation. Do not use high pressure water or air hose to clean unit as these items can damage coils or wiring.
As a tech, we see this all the time on units that have been installed by customers who bought their unit at HD or Lowes and carried them home and installed into window. Just for info, if we respond to a call and find that the unit is not properly installed and water is draining from front, manufacture's warranty is voided on the spot. Hate to see you loose a good warranty over an improper installation.

THERE ARE SMALL WATER WAYS INSIDE THE UNIT THAT ARE BECOMEING CLOGGEDAND OVER TIME THEY WILL START TO LEAK INSIDE THE WINDOW. YOU SHOULD PULL THE AC OUT AND CLEAN WITH A STRONG STREAM OF WATER . THE COILS INSIDE AND OUT SIDE. I DO MINE EVERY FALL BUT I TAKE MINE APART TO GET ALL THE DIRT OUT. IF YOU HOSE THE UNIT AND TURN THE UNIT ON IT'S SIDE LET THE UNIT SET IN IT'S NORMAL POSITION FOR ABOUT 4 HOURS SO THE OIL WILL RUN BACK TO THE COMPRESSOR. OR THE COMPRESSOR WILL LOCK UP
