How to Replace the Recirculation Tube in a Whirlpool Calypso Washer

Part link for the Recirc Tube ==> http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Tube-water-recirculation/8054989/903391

The basket *does not* need to be removed. Raise the top, take off the tub ring. Release the tab on top of the recirc tube where it anchors to a slot at top of the outer tub, and pull the tube straight upwards to remove it. Press the replacement tube down into place on the connector nipple/nubbie at bottom of the tub, anchor the tab. Reassemble the tub ring and machine top.
