I removed the two screws holding the front panel and lifted out of the way. I then removed the front two bolts holding the top to the frame. I slid the top forward providing access to the interior. I then removed the four screws holding the discharge unit against the back panel. I removed the broken elbow and installed the new one. I reversed the removal procedure and installed the discharge hose to the new elbow. (Note: the new elbow was slightly smaller at the discharge end than the old one. The discharge hose had a larger inside diameter than the elbow. Probably due to the age of the machine). I will pay attention to the discharge hose if I have to move the washer again.
