For drain hose 7/8".
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First I removed the 4 screws holding the old elbow in place. Then I removed the screw holding the cover over the upper access hole on the below the syphon break elbow. I reached up through the access hole and removed the old elbow from the inside. I slid the new elbow up through the hole, aligned it with the housing plate and then screwed the screws back in to hold it in place. I had to cut about 3" off my old drain hose, because the outside diameter of the old syphon break elbow was about 1/16" larger and had stretched the end of the hose too much to fit tightly on the new elbow. I then attached the drain hose to the new elbow and tightened the hose clamp and reinserted the hose into the drain and pushed the washer back into place. (I used the old hose clamp rather than the one included with the new elbow because it still worked fine and looked sturdier than the enclosed one.)

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
Removed the four screws that hold the part and also loosened the screw for a cover. Moved cover to gain access to inside of machine. Removed broken piece and replaced. Tightened screws and replaced plate. No leaks.
I removed one screw from the access panel directly below the syphon break. I removed the 4 screws that secure the elbow to the valve. I reached inside the access panel and pulled the valve towards the front of the washer far enough so I could reach in and remove the broken elbow. I inserted the new elbow and replaced all the screws. I connected the drain hose to the syphon break, connected both water lines and I was done!
One of the drain hose clamp broke (on Halloween night). After cleaning up the flood in the house (talk about a house of horrors). I removed the front panel of the washer and also discovered a mouse living in the washer on a stockpile of cat food. I also discovered that the MAYTAG washer that I bought used from a local appliance vendor did not have the correct SIPHON assembly for the drain hose thanks to PARTS SELECT. I ordered the SIPHON CONNECTOR, SIPHON BREAK ELBOW and I needed a new lid HANDLE and I discovered the CYLINDER LIGHT BULB was out. I could have gotten the CYLINDER LIGHT BULB at a local store much cheaper. The lid HANDLE was plastic and was way over priced - it looked like metal but it was plastic. However, the Siphon Break Elbow Kit and Connector were easy to install. You remove the front enclosure panel by removing 4 self-tapping screws at the bottom. You remove 2 sheet metal screws that hold the top enclosure panel on (in rear) and lift that cover up about five inches (prop it open really). (Which is where I also found a mouse nest which I also removed.)I clamped a hose to the SIPHON CONNECTOR from the inside. PUT THE RUBBER GASKET INTO THE SIPHON CONNECTOR. SEAT THE SIPHON ELBOW INTO THE SIPHON CONNECTOR. FEED THE ELBOW into a precut hole on the back panel (from the inside). Then use 4 self-tapping screws (purchased separately at the local hardware store) through the precut holes into the SIPHON CONNECTOR from the outside/back. Attach the additional hose (that goes to the drain) with the hose clamp. It actually took me longer than an hour for the whole project because I had to clean up after the mouse. Oh! And I caught the mouse the next day with a mouse trap by the frig. It'S like a brand new washer.
