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.
The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.
