 Thank you for your question. Vacuums are one of the appliances that make good home repair projects. The instructions and pictures below should help.

 To replace this connection pipe you will need to have some basic tools. Two small pocket type flat blade screwdrivers seam to work the best for this repair.

  • Locate on the hose elbow connection the molded seam line in the cuff and on the elbow connection.
  • Place the flat blade screwdriver in the gap between the elbow and the hose cuff and work up under the cuff along the seam line up the hose in under the cuff for about 1 inch or until you release the locking tab.
  • Do this on both sides of the cuff, so both sides are released at the same time.
  • Once the tabs are released, slide the cuff up the hose and out of the way.
  • This will expose the wiring harness on the connection pipe. NOTE: the location of the wires and how they fit onto and around the connection pipe so you can install them back exactly as they are or the cuff with not lock back onto the connection pipe.
  • Remove the push in connectors on the wire harness and then locate locking tab on the connector pipe and release it from the spiral of the hose and remove the connection pipe from the hose.
  • Install the new connector and re-connect all the wires and slide the cuff back up the connector. This will take a little working back and forth of the cuff to get it to lock onto the new pipe.

White side out, black side in, thank you! BTW, I found and viewed those same images before I posted my question, but being black/white it was just too difficult to tell still what side the white went on. Cheers!

The first image below shows the basic procedure for removing the handle on that type of vacuum cleaner. Your model may look different than the one shown below but that basic procedure should be about the same. The second image shows how to remove the swivel. The 3rd image shows how you may need to insert some small flat-tip screwdrivers into the swivel to release clips that secure the collar to the hose. The 4th image shows the hose wires and more details of that swivel. This information may help you see how to replace components on that hose assembly instead of ordering that complete component. If you are able to remove the handle and the swivel, then you should be able to replace individual components. Here is a link for a parts page where you can order those components: Kenmore Vacuum Cleaner 116.26212601 Hose and Attachment Parts . Be sure that you unplug the vacuum cleaner before accessing internal components.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.

If you get to a point where you need to have a technician complete that repair, you can carry the vacuum cleaner into your nearest Sears Repair Center or Sears Store for service.
