You must have a P-Trap or you will have sewer gas coming through the drain. The washer should not be plumbed solidly to the drain. Washer drain hoses have a crook in their outlet ends. This should just hang into the top of a 2" vertical drain pipe that extends above the level of the water in the washer to prevent siphoning. The washer's pump will expel the water up and into the drain, and then the P-Trap is usually located close to the floor, just before it enters the main drin.
