Probably will cause a problem----take a picture---that needs to be a 2" DRAIN with a P-trap near the floor----why the need to pump it 5 feet up?

If the drain hose that came with the washing machine will reach the drain pipe (no extension hose spliced on), and fit in the drain pipe loosely, and it works okay then there is no problem with that approach.
