This part fixes the following symptoms:
Occasional noted leak became worse and I had a repair service out. Incorrect detection of outer tub seal made so cancelled them and read comments about raising the top. Did so just at start of a rinse cycle to see soapy water shoot from top of syphon break then continue to dribble out through tub empty process--this is what had cause the water to flow down the interior drain hose and out through the side and bottom near the pump.Ordered all the parts shown here and they arrived just in time for planned work. Did not need or use the clamp and gasket purchased as the gasket was included in the break package and I really like the old-style clamps much better.Replaced the break and the elbow and put it back together. Things went south on a rinse as water shot out the back hose at the new elbow. I had not realized the size of the new elbow was smaller than the original. Went back to the old elbow but it bothered me that it would still move when the 4 assembly bolt-screws were completely tight.So far this seems to have worked. There does not seem to be any leaking at all. For those who read this, the job could be done in about and hour for less than I spent if you observe and diagnose properly. It appears that the washer at the end of the Syphon Break wore out and that is what caused the leak.Thanks much to PartSelect for being in business and to all the posters on this site for helping everyone to get these things done right!

I removed 2 screws holding the front of the cabinet and set the front panel aside. Next I removed the screw securing the relay and water level switch to the front of the cabinet, and removed 4 screws holding the top of the washer to the cabinet. I removed the hose, then removed the 4 screws securing the siphon break to the rear panel and pulled it inside the cabinet. I removed the elbow and gasket, installed the new elbow and gasket, and reassembled all parts previously removed. I reconnected the hose and fastened it to the drain, and I was back in business. It took about 35 minutes.
no one in my town could identify this part, much less had it in stock. i didn't know what it was called. your online illustration gave me the information i needed to order the correct part, and replacing it was a breeze. replaced for less than the price of a service call! my 26 year old daughter did the work, supplying some much-needed validation of her girl-power!
Removed the tub cover screws, removed the broken elbow (4 screws) replaced the gasket, installed the new elbow, replaced the tub cover and screws. Tested the repair for leaks. Job finished.
Performed repair through access cover in rear of machine. Removed screws with a nut driver and took out broken elbow. Pulled hose down to access hole to replace gasket then put back into position. installed elbow and reinstalled screws. ( this was tricky, have a helper to start the screws or place the screw in the nut driver with a piece of cloth to hold it in place), Make sure the screws are tightend evenly so the elbow sits completely against the gasket
