Just bought a new house and found out that the washing machine drain is
located in the floor. Will this cause a problem?

Thanks for the help!
Sounds like someone took a shortcut and it may have worked. Generally, all
drains are in the floor because you use gravity to move the water, but a
standpipe prevents siphoning or backflow. You can use the drain, but do add
a standpipe for the washer.
