You can't have the washing machine trap on a different floor from the appliance. So you'll have to add a new drain for the washer.

You have that 1.5" pipe marked as a vent, is there anything else draining into it other than the washer? Where does it go as it goes down?

Also, code now requires a 2" drain pipe for washing machines since the HE models tend to push a lot of water out quickly.
