The drains in the gutters under the hood are clogged. Straighten out a wire coat hanker and push it down to break up the clog. Road dirt, dust, traction material & leaves & pine needles will form a plug very fast.

    There should be a drain tube in the ductwork, between the evaporator coil and the blower. It too, could be clogged.

Leaking water

At the base of the windscreen there is a gutter (Phelumn chamber)that drains the water out and down past the front wheels in side the mudguards. This gutter blocks up with dirt/ leaves /insects and will rust out and allow water into the cabin area especially if you are in an area that used salt in winter on the roads

Water leak in front passenger side water leaks from heater box area and runs underneath front carpet whenever it rains or when car is washed

you possibly have a leaky windshield. Try turning the heater blower on high , close all the windows and doors and get a squirt bottle with a soapy solution and start squirting it around the windshield edge and see if you get any bubbles from where you squirted the soapy solution. if you do WAH LAH you found where the water is coming in from.

Water leaks into the vehicle on the front,

It could be a plain old fashioned leak around the windscreen - difficult to find but try sitting in the car while somebody plays a water hose over the windscreen.

It could also be a blocked drain in the ventilation system - fresh air is normally drawn in to a car via vents at the bottom of the windscreen. These vents normally lead to a "box" like structure where any water that enters the vents drops to the bottom and then drains away via a short hose that runs to somewhere underneath the car.
If the drain outlet or hose gets blocked (by leaves for example), it can cause the box to fill with water to the point where it can leak out in to the passenger area.

Hope this helps you find the problem.
