Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue so do not rate me until we are done thanks.
What part number did you get?
OK if I were you I would just get a couple quick connectors instead of trying to feed that whole coil through since the tubing does not go bad. Just clip the tubing off right close to the old tank, clip the new tubing off about 1-2 feet to give you some room to work and quick connect the lines using the quick connectors...you can get them at a hardware store...much faster and way less headaches.

Yes that is more then plenty to use a quick connector...just get these at the hardware store...cut off some of the tubing off the bad one...just a small piece to make sure you get the right size...should be 1/4" or 5/16"
OK at this link on the picture which one are you having issue with?
That should be screwed on. That should be a screw on connector at the male nipple on the tank...not a pull out... and yes just clip the tubing off close and use and inline splice or just remove the BLUE tubing off the quick connector on the tank and if there is enough old line just slip it into the elbow connector then you do not even need to get a quick connector as long as you have enough slack.
You press the collar in on the elbow while pulling on the tube to release it. On the new tank under the red cap if that is smooth it should slip into to another quick connector on the unit, you just need to push on the collars on the connectors while pulling back the opposite way on the tubing or tank to remove them.
Ok just let me know if you need more help
