You need to blow out the drain line where it hooks up to the pan and clean out the drip pan. It doesn't matter how clean you keep the filter, that's just to keep the evaporator coils clean, which is important in itself. But algae will grow in the drip pan if it is not tilted to drain correctly and will clog up the drain line. If you put a level on the top of the unit, the bubble should JUST BARELY break the line on the OPPOSITE side from the drain outlet on the pan. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: A/C drain pan not draining.
The drain must have one and only one trap in it. A trap is where the pipe goes up then back down so that water is kept in a section of the pipe - will stop the air from blowing thru the drain and not letting the water drain - may not sound right but it is! I've seen this many times! Drain traps are not understood at all by the HVAC industry.
