A wet/dry shop vac is the easiest way. you will want to make sure the drain line is unclogged so it will not just fill right back up again.

if water is in the overflow, that means the main line is clogged and the main pan is full. both will need to be cleared.

You can use a shop vac for all of that.

The water should drain by itself ,but if doesn't the drain pipe must be clogh .To clear the drain blow air pressure (not a lot) through it and keep it clean by pouring half a cup of clorox every 3 to 4 months.

Why does drain pan overflow? How is water in pan suppose to go away before overflowing?

Are you sure it is the drain pan overflowing? If water is appearing on the floor every few days, it may not be getting to the drain pan (evaporator tray), due to a blocked drain channel. The evaporator tray will normally cope with the daily amount of de iced water of a frost free fridge/freezer.

Miele G 870 SC dishwasher drain was plugged due to blocked sewer line, now won't stop pumping even though all water is been excavated and the drain, trap, and filter have been cleared

Check the water level valve. It sounds like it has stuck. It is in the bottom tray of the washer, sitting by itself. Tapping on it usually frees it up. It may yet stick again, if so, free it up again. Usually once is enough, though. If this doesn't fix your problem, you will need to replace the switch.

Water leaking underneath the appliance

It can be that the deforst tray is overflowing due to excessive frosting of the auto defrost.
So look into the rear bottom and remvoe tray to drain out.
If this is not he case then a possible leak inthe defrosting tray on the evaporator.

Leaking water from back on to floor

This could be that the drain tank at thebottom of the fridge is overflowing. Normally the drain water will evaporate off with the heat from the compressor but if possible it is good to clean and drain the collecting tray in the bottom of the fridge. You must have access to the backside of the fridge and remove the tray which is normally a pulllout. Drain , clean and put it back-- slide it in. Hope you do thei. Also make sure that the freezer setings are normal and not set high. During cold season this can condense more water to overflow the drain. Hope you try., Good day

Overflow tray

Check to make sure that the doors are 'sealing' all around the face of the gasket. If not, it is pulling outside (moisure laden) air inside, condensing, and then draining out to the drain tray on top of the compressor. Replace the gasket if it is not sealing!!

How do I get to the overflow tray to drain it? Where is it located?

The overflow tray should be on the indoor air handler, just below the connection of the white PVC drain line. It will require a 5/16 or so nut driver to remove the panel to get to the pan. It may be clogged in the pan where the drain connects or any part of the drain that is attached to it. Do you have any compressed air?

Central air unit/ Lux500 thermostat

There is usually an overflow tray which has a shutoff valve when the tray is about to overflow water into your house. It is not located outside on your unit but inside where ever the condenser unit is. IF that tray is full of water, your unit will not turn on until it is emptied. Then you need to find out why the tray isn't you have a blocked drain pipe?

Water leaking to bottom of freezer

ok you have a blocked freezer drain. The best thing to use to clear this is 'curtain wire (the plastic coated wire you use to hold up net curtains). Ok you need to find the drain hole in the "small tray on the back wall inside that fills and freezes and then the water is overflowing at this point to the bottom of freezer" you want to gentley feed the curtain wire down the hole untill the water drains down there. If you can't get the wire down you may need to turn the unit off to defrost as it could be frozen solid with ice. cheers
