2002 ford explorer air only blows through dash vents will not switch to floor or defrost vents

This sounds like an actuator. There is usually several (three or four) on different vehicles. There will be at least one that directs the air to different locations such as defrost. You also may have a defective selector switch. I would check this before I changed the actuator or blend door. If the blend door is defective, this usually calls for totally removing the entire dash panel and usually requires several hours work. If you have to have a repair shop do this it can be very expensive.

I'm thinking the wire cable that controls the front defroster fell off under the dashboard. It's happended to me on an older vehicle. Does the defroster lever feel different (easier to move) than the other levers?

I took my 2002 ford explorer for a detail yesterday. It came back with the ac not coming out of the main vents. It works on defrost but not in the front four vents. Got any ideas

Your blend door is not operating properly. The blend door directs the air where it is supposed to go based on the settings you tell it, vent, defrost, floor, etc.
