    Likely a clogged drain. Be careful when trying to clear. Mine was leaking and I used air blower, but there is some danger of blowing hose off, so be careful. I think some guys recommend gently running a small wire down through.

    I got lucky on mine. The compressed air fixed the problem..............

    NOOOOOO! Don't put a hanger down there. You'll tear something for sure.

    Take something with a thin spray nozzle (like WD40) and give it a little shot in each drain. You should be able to tell which one is plugged. Then run a piece of thin, flexible wire down gently through the plugged drain.
