Any drain hole will be located at the lowest spot on the floor panel. It usually requires a flash light to find it. If you do find it, run a wire into the hole to clear the drain line.

If you don't find one, try the following door gasket seal test. Using a paper money bill, insert it at various spots around the door, while closing the door normally. If you find areas where there's little or no resistance to pulling the bill out, replace the door gasket. Its part number is ***** and its price is $75.20. You can buy it at www.repairclinic.com.

You will need to pull the unit out to access the drain tube. It is shown as number 315 in the diagram at the link below and is mounted on the back of the cabinet.

The drain fitting right at the top that pushes into the cabinet is likely plugged, that is very common. It will simply pull out for cleaning. Once it has been cleaned, it should prevent any more water from collecting under the drawers.
