Re: samsung french door where is the drain pan located
Should be at the rear of the fridge probably behind the panel at the bottom. It will be at either side on the base or directly above the compressor. Don't try and pull it out, there are usually condenser pipes located inside it. Use an old towel or something to soak up the water. The machine is supposed to dry the pan out itself.

Well Terry...that is hard to say with the limited information provided
so I'll give you some areas to look at...listed in order of most likely area of concern.
If your vehicle has a sunroof...it's drains could be plugged which may allow water to drain into the passenger compartment. To check this open the sunroof and introduce a slow stream of water to make sure the roof drains are clear and running freely.
If your vehicle has a plugged front drain pan for the windshield, that may overflow into the passenger compartment. To check this area the wipers and plastic trim parts have to be removed. The fast way is to have a helper spray the windshield with a garden hose while you monitor under the dash for leaks.
If the wet area is on the same side as the vehicles heater core
then the core may be leaking. You will smell the coolant and your windshield may fog up. Check by observing the core enclosure, while the engine is running and also check the radiator fluid level (while the engine is cold) as it will drop if the core is leaking. If the A/C drain pan is plugged (and if it is located in the passenger compartment) the collected condensation may overflow into the passenger compartment..
That's high, but not terribly so. Transmissions typically run about 180, but on my Silverado the trans temp gauge doesn't show red until 250. Smell the trans fluid, if it doesn't smell burned, it should be ok. If unsure, change the fluid. I don't recommend a power flush, just drain the pan, change filter, measure what was in the pan, add that amount of new fluid and of course, correct why it got that hot in the first place.
You will have to get under the vehicle and find the oil pan directly under the engine. On the oil pan you will locate the bolt to drain the oil pan. They usually are at the lowest point on the oil pan so that all the oil is drained from the pan when removed.
the drain plugs are located under the floor mats in the floor pan . If you look from underneath you will see the round plugs .If the carpets have been wet that bad then you will never get rid of the musty ( fungus) smell . consider new floor mats
To flush the transmission is not something you can do yourself you have to some special equipment. You can, however change the fluid. There is no drain plug to drain the transmission like there is with the engine oil. If you have been driving this for 6 years and have never changed the fluid and filter, changing it now is probably too late and the damage is done. To drain the fluid you have to remove the pan on the bottom of the transmission. It is very messy so have a large clean pan to catch it in. you will need a new filter, but you can reuse the gasket if it's not damaged. If the fluid is black and has a burned smell you transmission is on it's way to being dead.
Check the fluid you are getting. Rub some between your fingers. If it smells like coolant and feels slimy, chances are its a bad heater core. If its clear, not much smell and feels like water, condensation from evaporator. That is usually a plugged drain tube, or drain tube has slipped off the catch pan. The A/C evaporator can be accessed without too much problem up under the passenger side dash, sometimes behind the glove box.....Mike
Most transmission pans do not have a drain plug. To drain the transmission the velicle will have to be raised. I usually set a large drain pan-several quarts in size-under a rear corner of the transmission pan. I loosen about three bolts on the corner so the transmission fluid will drain. When drained, I remove the rest of the bolts-all 32 or more of them. With the pan off check the color of the fluid look for burnt looking fluid. See if the fluid smells burnt. If so you may have other transmission problems. Look for metal pieces in the transmission pan another indicator of other problems. Clean all the old gasket from the pan and transmission housing-be careful not to gouge either the pan or housing. I use my finger or thumbnail if possible. Gouging either of these places will cause leaks. If you're going to replace the screen do so now. Place the new pan gasket on the pan. Check with the manufacturer's specs before using any permatex or other silicones to hold the pan gasket. I always slide a bolt or two through the pan and gasket holes, lift the pan, and start the bolts. Go slow. Make sure each bolt is going through the gasket hole before tightening it to the transmission housing. Replace the bolts and tighten to a snug using a criss-cross pattern. Go back and forth across the pan tightening each bolt a few turns until all are tight. Don't overtighten the bolts. Doing so will damage the pan gasket, When all bolts are tight, refill the transmisson slowly checking for leaks. Fill the transmission to manufacturer's specifications.
Clogged or disconnected drain hose from the heater core box. Or bad/leaking heater core. Does the liquid smell like coolant. If so bad heater core. If not and the water only when you use the AC then it is a drain hose issue. If neither of those pan out you could have a leaky windshield. However 99% of the time a wet passenger floor is caused by a bad heater core or drain hose.
