Washing Machine empties into sink

We just bought a house in the Bay Area (California). It was
built in the 40's. The way the washer dryer is set-up is the washer has a hose that hangs over a deep sink. How do we go about having the washer drain externally?

You can install a washer drain standpipe with a trap at the bottom of it directly to your drain/waste/vent system.
Slope the drain line from the trap 1/4" per linear foot to the main drain line.
Good Luck!
