Leave it alone. DO NOT attempt to create a drain. As long as a window A/C unit is installed properly, (angled slightly down toward the rear) it will drain excess water over the rear lower lip of the unit should it get that high. Many models use some of the collected water/condensation. It gets lifted up by the fan blades to cool the coil.

You will need to replace the drain pump motor. The pump impeller has separated from the motor shaft. You can push it back on, but it will just come off again. I have not tried adding adhesive because I didn't want a call back. That may work if you want to try it. To replace pump motor:
Take the rectangular recess out by using a putty knife on the left or right side, Remove phillips screws mounting pump. Pull machine forward about two feet to allow you to tilt the machine back to lean it against the wall. Reach under to access the pump. It is held in place by a plastic tab you can depress to remove, but if you break the tab, don't worry, as the mounting screws will hold your pump in place just fine when reinstalled. Remove pump by disconnecting hoses and electrical plug. Change out pump motor (three phillips head screws)

Electronic filters use static dicharges to filter the air. Unfortunately the make that clicking noise when they discharge. LG calls it a plasma filter. Clean both the regular and the plasma filter to see if that helps.

Hi, there may be an obstruction in the pump housing that is causing the motor to freeze or, the impeller may be stripped and , jamming the pump. this will cause the hum you are hearing. the best way to inspect is to , extract the drain pump by, removing
the bottom drain filter housing or sump. manually
move the pump impeller to self it is moving freely. if the impeller is stripped, it will not be able to produce the draining surge necessary to pull the water out.
If the impeller is fine and, there are no obstructions visible, this will confirm pump failure.. replace the pump in this case
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

If the indoor coil is icing up, you are either low on freon, or the indoor coil is very dirty. This will cause it to ice even though you have replaced the filter. See if the suction line/large copper line has ice on it on the outdoor unit. If so, its low on charge or the indoor coil has plugged up and not getting enough air flow across it. Please keep me posted.
