A hose burst in Fridge and I was able to get part but I am not sure which hose goes where. This is in the back lower left when looking at back of Frig. The hose's come down the back of Frig and some come from inside, is there a diagram that I can see so I can put the proper hoes's back it right place? This is for the clear hose's that hook up to Twin valve Assembly - Long P/N: WR57X10022

Re: Installing water hose's
it is kind of hard to explain without being there, so please bear with me.
if the refrigerator has a water filter then 2 lines will will go to it, probably diagonally up the back of the refrigerator. the water goes through the filter first then back to the valve.
then another line will go strait up the back of the refrigerator to the icemaker.
the line that goes under the refrigerator is for the water dispenser in the door.
the water valve should have come with instructions on which line goes where on the valve, there is now way for me to convey this to you. the valve assembly you described is proprietary for your machine.
if you need more help let me know, i will try to help you figure it out.

Need more info on what type of fridge it is. Side by side with the water filter at the bottom with the push button on the left. Push it really hard and the filter ejects from the housing. Or if it's in the ceiling or top of the fridge inside the fridge compartment. You lower the cover, then lower the filter (will still be hooked up) then grab the filter with with both hands. One in the back to twist and the other on the front to keep it stable and in place. If you twist from the back and don't hold the front. It will snap that plastic that the filter goes into. Which we don't want to happen. After yiu replace the water filter. Make sure you dispense at least 1/2 a gallon or a full gallon of water out or the water dispenser to get all the air out of the water line. Having air in that line can and will cause a bunch of other issues later on.
Between your freezer section and refrigerator section there is a draintube that allows water to flow from the freezer to the fridge during defrost. You will need to remove the rear wall of the freezer to access the freezer part and the center console of the fridge if one is there. Once you have determined that tube is cleared of ice you will need to continue tracing where the water flows which is usually at the top of the fridge section in the rear center. It goes out the back wall there. Make sure thats all cleared and pour a small cup of water in the freezer part to be sure its clean. Observe the water flow all the way out of the tube to the lower part of your unit into the drain pan which is located at the very bottom or in the rear on top of the compressor.
If your saying water builds under the crispers in the fresh food compartment even though you have removed the plug, then the problem would be the drain hose going to the drain pan is plugged up or kinked. If the fridge is running too cold, then there is a slight chance that area of the drain has ice in it. Mop up excess water, and pour scalding hot water into the drain hole and wait. Try that 2 or 3 times moping up each time. If no drainage starts you will have to go to the back of the machine and remove the back cover to trace where the hose goes into the drain pan. Techs usually carry a can of compressed air with a hose attached to blow the drain clean. Easy does it. Not too much pressure. If you have no access to something like that, you have the option of removing the drain hose completely, and cleaning it out in the sink, or if you have one, a tire pump with it's end jury rigged to make a good fit into the end of the drain hose will usually work P.S. If you must remove the back cover, please replace it when done. It is part of the ducting system and left off will cause the compressor to overheat.
You have to remove the food and ice maker ( if equipped ) , and remove the back panel screws and the panel . Use a hair dryer , start in the center , under the coils , and defrost , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once defrosted , use a small hose inserted into the drain hole , and blow thru , to remove any debris , built up inside the drain line . Reassemble .
If the water is visible in the front, more than likely the hose has become disconnected from the door, if you look at the lower left hand corner you should see the hose come from underneath the machine and attach to the door via a plastic quick connect, it is just a push lock connection. You may have to pull of the toe kick and the left hand end cap depending on the model to see this.
Be sure to turn off the water valve before you start.
The water tube is probably kinked at the front lower left corner.
Take the front lower grill off of the refrigerator and open the left door (freezer) and see if the translucent plastic tube is kinked where it comes from the bottom of the refrigerator and goes up into the door.
If it is, there is plenty of tubing to allow you to pull it out of the connector at the corner and cut off the kinked part and re-insert the tube.
Turn the water valve back on.
(This was the problem with my fridge and I had to show the Sears technician. He had already told me to call a plumber and get a dedicated water line due to low water pressure! Imagine the cost if I had believed him. Works great - good flow and no leaks.)
Hope this helps.
Your fridge utilizes a "dual coil" electro-mechanical water valve inlet system (the water from the wall is hooked up to it). One coil for the Ice Maker, the other for the chilled water. The chances of both valves failing at the same time are slim to none... and slim just left town.
First, verify your filter installation. Remove it completely, 1/4 turn left and pull. Then reinsert it fully and lock it in solidly with a 1/4 turn right. Pull on it hard to make sure it's locked.
Second, get a pair of slip joint pliers or a 7/16" open end wrench. Pull the fridge out from the wall and turn the water off. Remove the hose going into the fridge. Hold the hose in a bucket or pan and slowly turn the water on and let it run for a second to verify water. Then reinstall the hose back on the valve assy.
Now, try your water dispenser.
If this doesn't work, we can go deeper. Post back with your findings, please.
