Slip washer direction

Which way do the slip washers face in a plastic slip jam nut coupling? Maybe that's why it's leaking. Thanks

Flat end against the nut, tapered end against the connection.

While you have it out, check the surface for defects and give it a pull. Sometimes they crack and you won't notice it. Check the inside of the pipe you are connecting to also for debris. Good luck.
