If you look closely at the plastic near the threaded ports you will see Pump, Return and Waste. Pump is the hose coming up from the pump discharge, return goes back to the pool or to a heater or other accessory if you have one and waste is the backwash line.

We need to change the sand in our filter ,it is a sw256t hayward ,but dont know how to remove other sand,does anyone know how?

Once you have the plumbing disconnected and valve removed,
Use a shop vac. Works well.
Once the sand is almost all removed, you can tip the tank over & rinse out with hose for the rest.
