    The clean out is ok but I don't like the double wye on a washer. I'd rather see the washer come into the vertical below that other line if possible.

    IF that is REALLY a vent, then the washer has to connect with a sanitary tee, while the other side MAY connect with a "Y", assuming it is independently vented.

    in ontario 1-1/2" is fine for washer drain..depending on the distance to p-trap for washer you can stack vent with the vent you are tieing into as long as there is no discharge above and you connect to "vent" using a T

    Many of the newer WM pump water MUCH faster than the older ones, and while redoing things, you will be MUCH happier in the long run if you use 2".
