Washer drain elbow adapter or hose w/ elbow?

I can't believe I'm having this much trouble finding something, so I'm resorting to asking here for help. I just got a new-to-me washer from a coworker. The drain stub comes out of the bottom of the washer horizontally (like I'm assuming most do). I bought a universal drain hose from Home Depot, but when I attach it I can't really get the washer any closer than 4-6" from the wall because the hose won't bend any more (and I don't want to kink/break it trying to get it do so).

Is there a rubber 90 I can use to change the direction right after the drain stub? It seems most hoses available online have the same straight end that's supposed to attach to the washing machine, very few if any have a 90.

I can't believe this is that uncommon of a problem, what's the best way to deal with it?

Thank you

Edit: Now I'm wondering if I should tilt the washing machine up, and remove the stub-out/hose/whatever that the stub-out is attached to at the pump and attach my universal hose there, I could probably get a tighter bend/angle from inside the machine that way...
