HI! The front water valve that connects to the water dispenser fell out. The hose is sticking out from the bottom, and had shot me with water when i pushed the button for the water. I don't know where to put it back in. Please help!

Your model number is not coming up in a search on Sears web site. Typically it is found on a tag inside the refrigerator section and starts with 3 digits then a decimal point followed by more digits. Assuming this is a side by side, the hose comes into the door through the bottom hinge. Normally there is a connector that connects the hose in the door to the supply hose. I suspect that connector has failed, or the hose is old and has dry rotted and cracked in half. Remove the toe plate and you should be able to see the supply hose and the hose from the door and see if they are connected. Have someone dispense water and see if you can see a leak if the hose isn't visibly broken. I'm not sure what you meant by "the front water valve". The water valve for both the fountain in the door and the ice maker is typically in the rear of the refrigerator near the compressor compartment. I hope this helps.

Looks like Tube # 75   &   # 76 (black) Sleeve and Connector # 80

looks like it's broken right past the # 76 (black) Sleeve where it goes up into the Door

The broken hinge assembly probably caused the problem-- changed the alignment of the door so that it was chewing on the tubing during opening and closing. If there's no tubing sticking out from the bottom of the door, I don't think this is repairable; you'd have to get a new door with the tubing factory-moded into it.

Fishing that tubing up through the foam might be a nightmare but, heck yeah, for $20 it's worth a try. :dude:
