Have you already filed? If you've already filed and your return has been accepted (or mailed), it's too late to change your bank account for direct deposit. If you have already filed and it was rejected, you can go back into your account and edit it and fix it, then resubmit it.
If you have not filed yet, here is a link on how to enter in your bank account information into your TurboTax Account:
Did you already e-file? If you did NOT e-file you can go to the FILE section and change how you want to receive your refund. If you want direct deposit you need the routing number and your own account number.
You cannot change banking information while your return is in pending, nor can you change it after the return is accepted. The IRS does not allow it.
If you e-filed:
Banking information for direct deposit is wrong or closed
If you entered incorrect banking information for your refund, you can change it if your return is rejected. If it is accepted, however, it is too late to change it. The bank will reject the refund and send it back to the IRS. Then the IRS will issue a paper check and mail it to the address you put on your tax return. Expect a delay of at least a couple of weeks to receive your refund.
Here is what the IRS says about entering incorrect banking information
