Washing Machine Relocation

Hello and good day.

I would like to move my washing machine to a different room.
But there is no way to connect new drain piping to the existing
drain pipe system that goes to the septic tank. It would be such a long distance
from the new location that there would not be enough slope. Is there a way
to pump the drain water to the existing piping?

I've seen toilets put in basements where the sewage is pumped up into
the drain pipes. Is there some kind of setup I could use for my washing
machine drain?

Thanks for your time.

Use a grey water pump under the laundry sink. There are many versions. Here is one example.
