After getting my husband and another strong guy to move the washer from the wall... I removed the single screw that held the access in panel below the elbow. I then removed the 4 screws that held elbow pinned between the syphon break and the rear panel of the washer. I reached up and removed the broken piece of elbow and replaced with my new syphon elbow. Within 20 minutes I had the 5 screws replaced and the access panel cover back on and the washer moved back into place against the wall. Since we broke the elbow moving it around during home remodeling... I was able to complete our first load of wash in 6 months that afternoon! Thank you!
