Question about Maytag M6X06F2A Air Conditioner

1 Answer

A/c is window mounted - tilted slightly to the outside. Water drips from the middle bottom of the unit, and onto the sill. I don't see any drain hole. Is there a drain hole that I can't see, or do I need to tilt it more, or is there a problem with the unit ? Thanks in advance

Water should drip out back. You may need to clean floor of unit so water can run to the back

Actually, you may have two issues. The drain hole may be clogged and the rear of the unit may not have enough downward tilt, to allow the water to flow to the rear of the drip pan and ultimately out thru the drain hole. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" rear downward tilt.

As far as the drain hole is concerned, it can be hard to find at times. Because the clog will often times blend in the drain hole. Patience & persistence are required in locating it. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the clog.

Troubleshooting the above should help to solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Portable haier air conditioner drainage. Cannot find drain hole and unable to tilt ac. Water is building up in the bottom of unit.

Here is a thought, received by me from a AC mechanic recently. Window ACs no longer actually drain concensate. Rather, the water is caught in a pan with the idea it will evaporate back into the outside air. The reason for this is the dripping water frequently resulted in the growth of algae below the unit resulting is unsightly stains and sometimes, slippery conditions. Evidently, there were a lot of complaints about being 'dripped on' also. So, AC manufacturers don't put drain holes in the bottom any more. If the pan over fills, it will spill out of many makes. If you want yours to drain, put a hole in the bottom.

Like I said, just a thought.

Thanks for your question @

the inside unit should be mounted with a slight tilt to the outside - so the water can drain outside.
also - be sure your drain hole (in the unit) is not plugged - either with dirt/debris.

My Haier window ac unit is dripping a lot of water into my room. It only starts to do it after it has been on for 20-30 minutes, but comes out in a steady stream from the bottom of the unit for the rest...

The window unit is most likely not tilted towards the outside so that the condensate (water) can flow to the drains on the outside part of the unit. Try leveling the A/C or even tilting (Slightly) towards the outside. This will cure your problem.

If this does not cure the problem then you will have to remove the a/c from the window/wall and remove the cover. Inside you will see the drip pan in the bottom and will have to clean the water channels the run from the pan to the outside part of the unit, they will be clogged with dirt or debris and not letting the water flow properly.

Hope this helps.

Drainage occurs near the front of the unit, resulting in pools of water leaking onto my window sill. Unit is installed properly, there is no drain hole to direct water away from the insides of the walls...

The A/C unit should be tilted slightly to the rear and this will allow the water to leak to the outside of the window, you may have to drill a small hole in the case to drain if there is no pre-existing hole.

Condensation at the bottom of the window air conditioner drips into the house. How can this be fixed?

Make sure your window A/C unit is tilting slightly toward the outside of the dwelling. It sounds like it's tilted inside. Also, check the drain holes in the pan on the outside of the unit to be sure they aren't plugged up.

Amana AP095R Portable Air Conditioner is dripping water constantly. It didn't use to do this. What's wrong here?

all air conditioners condense water .. the water is normally drained to the outside thru a hole near the outside bottom of the unit .. the unit has to be mounted so that it doesnt tilt inward .. the drain hole has to be cleaned once in a while ... if its clogged or if the unit is tilted inward then the water will drain inside the house .. less likely but possible is a cracked or damaged drip pan inside the unit ... thats a shallow pan under the condenser (cold) coil that captures the water and directs it toward the outside drain .. so check the tilt and clean the drain
