I decided that just replacing the flexible hose would not really fix the problem, since I could see from mineral deposits in the machine that it had failed before. So I decided to replace the rubber hose with a copper line.
I bought a 3 pack of 5/32" by one foot copper lines from Amazon ($3.75) and a 3/16" brass hose barb "splicer" at my local home improvement store ($2.78). This was a lot cheaper than a replacement flexible hose, too.
I then bent the copper line so it would replace almost all of the flexible hose. I bored out the hose barb with a drill so it would fit over the copper line. Unfortunately, I bored it off center and destroyed one end. The hardware store was closed by then, so I just cut it smaller and used the shorter barb ends.
