also how to I make the drain have a slope with this type of connection it tries to make it strait is there some kind of flexible pipe i could put on the end to connect it to the y?
Im getting aggravated at this really i need some help please
If you had to reposition the existing drain pipes to install a washing machine drain and lose the necessary slope, then you made a bad choice of location for the washing machine drain.
Also do not splice on to a washing machine drain hose unless the instruction manual specifically says you may. The built in pump is only strong enough to pump water the length of the supplied hose to a loosely fit drain connection or laundry tub. You can build a platform to put the machine on so the hose will reach a drain connection near the ceiling.
In addition there must be a trap in the washing machine tie in, I think 24 inches below where the machine hose is plugged in and then you connect to the main drain.
