You need to look under each door and try to find little slots which are pretty narrow openings spaced usually about 10 inches appart. The are obviously on the lowest part of the door to permit drainage.
Sludge can build up inside the door and block these - a small thin piece of strong wire can be used to free them.
It should be easy to tell if there is water in the door anyway just hold your ear to the inside of the door while gently moving it back and over - if there is water there you will hear the sloshing sound you mention.
If you dont hear this or no water escapes when you use the piece of wire - the problem may be a leak through your rear side windows - the water being held inside the inside panel - below the rear side window(s)
Again this can be detected by getting someone to shake the car while listening inside for the sloshing sound.
If you fill up your petrol tank prior to this test it will eliminate sloshing sounds from the petrol tank confusing the issue.
The presence of water inside the car is usually signalled by the windows easliy fogging up - especially while parked on sunny days.
